Fantastic and friendly staff and the tour guide was very knowledgeable. The itinerary is perfect and there was enough time to wander on your own and explore at both Gent and Bruges. Definitely take the canal cruise option if you can. It's only 30 minutes but a lovely ride with beautiful views. Definitely recommend this tour if you have limited time and want to see both these gorgeous locations

This tour was ideal for an easy - glimpse at Bruges and Ghent. Victoria did a good job of keeping a large group organized. She was knowledgeable about the area and was as accommodating as she could be. Be aware that this is a lager group tour. I wasn’t expecting the size ( about 40 people).

We really enjoyed the day tour. We did the tour with Albert(Guide) and Jimmy(Driver). It was a rainy morning in Ghent, this however did not spoil our fun in any way as they did their best to time the weather. By the time we reached Bruges the weather cleared up and we enjoyed the afternoon very much. Albert was very knowledgeable and handled the group very well. We will recommend this to any couple that want to get a great introduction to this Flanders region.
