Very interesting walk despite the rain that accompanied us throughout our journey. The boat trip with Captain Marc was tinged with humor and stories, a perfect mix. Anne, our guide in French, was very interesting and invested in making us discover and love the city to the point of wanting to come back.

Excellent guides on both the walking portion and boat portion of the tour. This is a great way to see all of the sights in Bruges.

So glad we booked this tour, it was really informative. The guide, I think Gia, was brilliant. Brugge is very beautiful!
