Only way to see Bruges
Aug 2021 • Couples
We toured Bruges with Ann. She was a delightful person, very knowledgeable, and you could immediately tell her day job was as a teacher.

Ann is a lifelong resident of Bruges and proud of her city. Touring Bruges with a local was the best way to get an orientation to a beautiful town.

A good relief for history and great stories thirst
Apr 2021 • Solo
I’m so happy we got a tour with Anna! Not only did she gave us an interesting and explorative tour, but we also felt like we were introduced to the life the locals live and we were visiting a friend here, who knows the latest news. What is more, we got to enjoy a private tour, so we got to ask as many questions we liked. Because of the few tourists, we had the privilege to be the only people inside Basiliek van het Heilig Bloed. All in all, it was a wonderful experience, and I’m not saying it by far only because we got to taste Belgian chocolate.

Great personal intro tour for a family
Apr 2021
Our family (with 2 kids, 7 and 10) took a private "Introduction to Bruges" tour in April 2021. The tour was booked to be 1h30, we got 1h45. Despite the horrible weather and the Covid restrictions, our guide showed us a lovely selection of the wonders that Bruges has to offer. She was very knowledgeable and could tell us about the background stories behind many of the structures. She pointed out things she realised would be interesting to us as individuals. She was friendly and very patient with the children's questions. Highly recommended.

Smashing tour by Local Guide
Sep 2020
Our guide was excellent! She was extremely knowledgeable about the city and the surrounding areas! This tour was a wonderful beginning to a fantastic long weekend in Brugge! Do yourself a favor and “kickstart” your trip with this incredible tour that shows you not only the guidebook sites, but the insider knowledge that only a local guide has to offer!

Great experience
Aug 2020 • Family
Patrick our guide is very knowledgeable and had the advantage of being local to Brugge. Very clear explanations and gave us a good starting point to explore the city in detail. Took extra time to point us to good waffle and chocolate places. Would recommend any day.

A fantastic and informative tour with Patrick who clearly knows the city inside and out
Jul 2020 • Couples
We really enjoyed having a local take us around this beautiful city. Thank you so much for the recommendations. For us this offered so much more insight than you would get from a canal boat tour. It was fun and interesting...10/10.

Great introduction to Bruges!
Mar 2020
Our tour guide was Marc. It was very cold and rainy during our tour, but that didn't stop us! In 90 minutes, we got a full city tour in, and learned so much about the history of Bruges. We also got great recommendations on restaurants, bars, chocolatiers, waffle houses and points of interests. it absolutely enhanced our stay in the city. Definitely recommend!

Amazing Tour of Bruge
Mar 2020
Our guide Anna met us in the town square of Bruge and told us that we were standing in the spot where a harbour was hundreds of years ago! Right then, I knew we were in for an amazing tour! We learned so much about the past and present of Bruge in the next hour and a half. Anna took us to many interesting spots and told us take from the past. We felt like time travelers and we learned so much! Thank you Anna!

Our guide and local hero Filip
Feb 2020
We had a wonderful introduction to Bruge.
Filip is a friendly and accessible person who really knows a lot about his city. We would not have missed this, because then we would certainly have passed a lot of beautiful things without the background that Filip explained very well.
