I took two tours with Brussels City Tours (Ghent/Bruges and Luxembourg), and unless you are pressed for time, I cannot recommend them. On the plus side, all three places are well worth a visit. Ghent and Bruges are absolutely charming, and the drive to Luxembourg is quite lovely. One of the stops on the Luxembourg tours is Bastogne with its... More

My girlfriend and I visited Belgium in July. We did the Ghent and Bruges day trip from Brussels. It was a solid tour. We saw the main sights in Ghent and got a very good feel of the city in such a short time. Then we traveled to Bruges, the highlight of course. So much history and such a beautiful... More

I was skeptical about booking a day tour and not organizing something myself, but I had done a bunch of preparation for the rest of my trip and decided to take a chance letting someone else plan the sightseeing. We arrived at the Brussels City Tours office at 8:45, and left shortly afterward. There were two guides on our trip--one... More

Jan2016, Brugge-Ghent tour with my noticeably pregnant wife and Brussels city tours. To add a few more insightful comments: 1) We paid 97€ with no tickets or receipts given. 2) The guide spoke 3 languages with terrible accent indeed. 3) There were parts of the Brugge tour that we did not wish to see and we decided to leave the...

We took 3 tours with this tour company on 3 consecutive days (Sat-mon). The first was the Antwerp city tour, followed by the day tour to Ghent and Bruges and finally the half day Brussels city tour. We didn't book the Brussels city tour at first because we were sceptical after reading a few negative reviews but after our first... More

I have to say I was looking forward to the day trip to Ghent and Bruges, but it really did surpass my expectations! The weather was amazing, which helped a lot, but the guide was very informative, friendly, approachable and gave the group a choice to either follow his walking tour or go around on their own. I think this... More

It is not like me to leave a dissatisfied review but this had to be done. I took the Ghent-Bruges Day Tour earlier this week (December 2015) and was horribly disappointed. There were two (2) tour guides (one who spoke French and Spanish and one who (supposedly) spoke English. Not only was the quality of the explanations/history sub-par but at... More

Having read that the attraction had been refurbished a few years ago and that visitor numbers had increased, we were drawn to a visit. The best part is from the outside. The exhibition lacked signage, atmosphere and we found the various exhibitions particularly dull. The ascent to the top floor was fine, but the rest a total disappointment. Coffee on... More
