    What to Expect
    At 8:30 am you will be picked up from the center of Brussels and head towards the majestic city of Antwerp, located 45 km north of Brussels. On the drive there, your guide will give you an overview of the landmarks you will pass on the way out of Brussels.

    On the way to Antwerp, you will stop for a few minutes at the Atomium to take a picture before continuing the trip.

    Get to know among other places the meat market, the castle Steen, the Town Hall Square, Church of Our Lady, the Church of San Carlos de Borromeo, the walking path of Tortas, Meir Street, the Rubens house, the station Central and the diamond quarter. After finishing the visit you will have 1,5 hours of free time to eat and go as you please the city, do some shopping in exclusive boutiques or admire frescoes by Rubens in the Cathedral.

    Explore Ghent with a Spanish-speaking guide and learn the history at sights such as the 13th-century Castle of Gerald the Devil and St. Bavo's Cathedral, where you can see “The Adoration of the Mystic Lamb” by the Van Eyck brothers.

    The next destination will be the beautiful and powerful city of Ghent. Residence of the famous brothers Van Eyck.

    Hear why Ghent's inhabitants are known as "noose-bearers“ as you visit the Belfry of Ghent and the Town Hall. Go to St. Nicholas’ Church and the Masons’ Guild Hall and see the quay side buildings of the Graslei. Visit medieval Gravensteen castle and enter the pretty Patershol neighborhood.

    Explore Ghent's trading history at the Great Butchers’ Hall, Old Fish Market and Friday Market. After leaving an hour of free time to wander through its beautiful streets, you will have a meeting point to return to the bus and return to Brussels.
