Xavier was a great host for a morning stroll through areas of Bruges we hadn't seen. We arrived a few days earlier and had explored on our own, but it was clear that we should have started with Xavier's tour because he showed us more possibilities and interesting areas than we knew about on our own. He was flexible with our schedule and made this history and stories so interesting that I'd recommend him for anyone who would like an overview of the city. He left us wanting another visit soon to go deeper into the city.

Anna was so amazing to show my family around Bruges on NYE. She has an incredible depth of knowledge and obvious love of her city. She took account of things we mentioned during casual conversation (like my
dad's love of beer and brother's love of dogs) and incorporated them throughout the tour. It was very special. Thanks Anna!

This tour was absolutely brilliant... we did it on our first day in Bruges and it really made the rest of our stay better. Igor was a great host, very knowledgeable and happy to answer any questions.
His information was a perfect mix of historical facts, interesting legends and stories and useful info about Bruges, like where to go for a strong beer, the best hot chocolate and restaurant recommendations. He also showed us some beautiful views and picturesque photo ops.
I'd happily do this tour all over again as there was so much interesting info i'm sure i've forgotten some already!

A fantastic introduction to a wonderful city! It was a pleasure
wandering Brugge with Annemieke, hearing the history, seeing the
sights and getting lots of information and tips from a local. I
enjoyed taking the less touristy cobblestone streets and laneways and
getting away from the shopping streets and crowds. A wonderful
experience and I highly recommend Annemieke as your tour guide, she'll
point out all the spots and her recommendations for food and drink
places are spot on.

We had a great tour with Igor. He was very knowledgeable and made
Brugge come alive with history and local stories. He was very
accomadating with my need to take photos and was great at providing
information on things we should see in our two days. Also provided
info on where to have beer, waffles and chocolate and food tips! It
was a great afternoon. Thank you Igor.

This is an incredible tour to experience en get to know Brugge. Nathan
is a great host, with a lot of information and he even brought some
pictures to illustrate his stories. It was so nice to see how many
people he knows! At the end, I told him I'm a vegan and he immediatly
gave some extra information about places to eat. Would recommand for
sure!

We booked the tour with Nathan as he was recommended to us by some
friends. My husband and I had a 2hr private walking tour with Nathan
and it was great. We saw and learnt so much within that time, history
and also great inside knowledge on places to see and hidden secrets.
As well as places to eat and drink. The visit at the end to the
chocolate shop was fab and he was patient with us on the short stops.
We would highly recommend Nathan as a tour guide. It was a fantastic
way of seeing the city.

My guide for this tour with a local was Annemieke. She was extremely accommodating to my needs being in a knee brace, she customized the tour to reduce some of the walking, and walked at a nice slow pace which was better for me. She is very knowledgeable about the city and history of Bruges. This was an extremely enjoyable tour and I highly recommend it. If you get a chance to select your local guide, I would recommend her. We ended the tour at a wine bar where we chatted some more. Thanks, Annemieke, this was awesome!!

We had all sorts of issues with the booking. We booked the day before and had confirmation. When the guide didn’t turn up we called localguides who told us they failed to get a guide. When we got another time later in the day and they then called to give us a brussels meeting address for a Bruges tour! Eventually Annabel -who to be fair was trying to sort out the mess- arranged it for the next day.
Our guide was Annemieke who was superb. She obviously enjoys doing it more as a hobby and was very enthusiastic and knowledgable with a great sense of humour. Definitely recommend her and she is fully qualified.

We had a wonderful tour leader in Nathan, who showed us so many of the
little back streets and interesting spots in Bruges. He was waiting
for us under the tower with a sign, making it easy to find. He was
delightful and made the walking tour a highlight. Great tips on
restaurants too, especially Margritt for breakfast! Loved it. Would
highly recommend this tour.
