About
A walking guided tour thought several walls, canals and architecture eras of Bruges. The best way to experience the history of a medieval town is through its architecture. Therefore, the main focus of this tour is architecture ad its details that reflect milestones in the history of Bruges. Jamal will stretch architecture, legends, art, love, and tiny details for you by a monodrama and sarcasm. Jamal will also give you free time after the tour full of recommendations of must-visit-places, and that includes where and what to eat. Last but not least, the architecture of chocolate will also be tasted during the tour. It would be so silly not to enjoy artisan handmade chocolate in the capital of artisan handmade chocolate of the world.

Had a great day in Bruge!
Dec 2019 • Couples
This was a great walking tour of a lovely city. Jamal, our guide, was great! He was funny, and knowledgeable about the area. He gave us some great insights about the area and story/background of all the historical sites. The best part was that we had the opportunity to roam around the city on our own for about 1.5 hours after the walking tour. This does not happen with these tours much, and we appreciated this.

Fantastic tour with knowledgable, friendly, and funny guide
Oct 2019 • Solo
I was on a short work-related trip to Brussels and had an extra day to explore, so I booked a last minute day trip to Bruges and Ghent. First, I was thrilled to get a spot at the last minute, as most of the other reputable tour companies were full. Second, my guide was fantastic! Jamal had a great sense of humor and provided us with interesting information in an entertaining and enjoyable manner. I really appreciated his deep knowledge of architecture and all of the little known interesting facts that you can't find in a tour book. He also gave us time to explore what we were interested in on our own, so I was able to see some amazing works (Picasso, Dali, Miro) when others in the group wanted to do other things. Jamal was very patient and kept us on time. I feel like I saw Bruges and Ghent and got an intimate and unique educational experience.

Your satisfaction is all what I aim for. Your love for art was distinguished easily from your eyes once I mentioned Picasso thus it was easy to guide you to the other masterpieces around the town. It was my pleasure to have you in the tour and do my best to satisfy your wish and meet your expectations. Thank you very much to choose this tour.

Took daytrip to Bruge from Brussels. Tour guide Jamal was excellent. Very knowledgeable and funny. He was very organized and shared many fun facts.
Answered questions and had a great sense of humour.
The tour is very fast paced. Some older participants had difficulty with the walking. It is fast, busy and over cobblestones.
I was able to keep up and enjoyed the tour.
Would highly recommend if you have a short amount of time and really want to see all the highlights of Bruge.

Excellent guided tour
Oct 2019 • Solo
The tour was fantastic. Our tour guide Jamal was very knowledgeable and gave information in a interactive way, he was also very helpful. I strongly recommend him it is above and beyond expectation. Bruges can be called Belgium Venice with layers of channels, numerous arched bridge, unique Architecht and great built structures that survived in natural hazards. Visit Bruges in a day if you don’t have much time.
