“Watch your step”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

Beautiful town with superb restorations; offers a most interesting walking tour. But be careful where you tread, because there are large dogs that seem to set strategic traps for unwary walkers. I don't know what these dogs eat, but their diet seems to e chosen to generate a large, squelchy heap of product.

“some interesting history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2012

We went on the walking tour on a day when it was 27 degrees, so I have to admit we only lasted for about 3/4 of it- though the guide was very good and stopped in the shade wherever possible. She was a local, so as well as telling you about the sights she also told you what Bruges citizens actually thought about bits of their history. Don't worry about it being 2 hours long, it's not two hours of walking as it includes lots of stopping to look at things.

“See Bruge though a local's eyes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2011

This two to three hour walking tour of Bruge starts at the Tourist Information Office near the railway station. Cost is 9 Euro. The tour leader is a local volunteer and our one spoke 4 languages. We were taken to most of usual places plus a couple off the beaten track. In general we received a good orientation of the town. The pace was easy and finished in the main square.
I suggest that this tour should be in addition to the canal tour. Makes no difference which you do first.
One tip buy your tickets early in the day or even the day before. The our groups are reasonably small.and could book out early
