A great way to explore Bruges on our own! Cracking the codes at each of the location to reveal the history of the site was fun and navigating to the next site meant we could meander through the city taking in its charm. Would definitely recommend as an alternative to guided walking tours!

We really had a good time for our tour of Bruges and Ghent. Our tour guide Jamal was really entertaining and very knowledgeable about all the landmarks along the tour. Highly recommended tour. You really need to try it the next time you’re in Brussels

The amount of information is exactly so much as needed to give you the sense of what you visit, without stuffing you with too much historical info. It takes you to all the sites in a fun way!

Well-balanced between guided tour and free time. The guided tours in both Bruges and Ghent were very interesting and informative.

Great way to get to know the city and the history of it.
