    Highlight of our trip
    Stephanie was an amazing guide. The tour was 1 hour and 30 minutes and packed with insightful information about the history and color of this beautiful city. We had been to Bruges twice before and she took us places we had not been and taught us things we had not learned from previous visits . We would highly recommend her tour to anyone visiting.

    Great Walking Tour of Brugge
    Stephanie is a fabulous tour guide. She is very knowledgeable about her new home city and is passionate about telling its history. We covered a good part of the city and she allowed enough time for questions, pictures, etc. Don’t hesitate to take this tour….it was great!

    Great experience ❤️
    This was our first experience with a walking tour guide so we had nothing to compare it to. We left with a very happy experience with Stephanie. The following day we also had a guide in Antwerp but we came to realise that Stephanie by far was amazing in comparison. She’s super friendly, very clear delivery, able to answer all questions, shared interesting facts and a great story teller throughout the walk. Ticking all the boxes that is needed to have an enjoyable and fulfilling tour. If given a new occasion to visit Bruges we’d definitely do her walking tour again! Highly recommend!!

    Fantastic
    Stephanie was an excellent guide. Clear and easy to understand with some interesting facts and tidbits about Bruges. The chocolate treat was great. The suggestions on where to get frites, and waffles were delicious. We especially appreciated the anecdote about Canadabrug 😉

    perferct Free Walking Tour of Bruges
    We did the free walking tour with Stephanie. Very good experience. She speaks loud and clear, everything was to understand. It was a short + fun walk through Bruges to see the highlights. Definitely for those who dont have much time. We came from a cruise and only had one day. Stephanie showed us the most important things in the city. Thanks a lot. It was great.

    Most fun activity of my Bruges trip
    Visiting Bruges was part of my small Europe trip. Thanks to Pascal, our guide, this walking tour was the most fun activity of my whole Europe trip. I loved the energy, jokes and the stories I learnt on this tour. Highly recommended. Thank you Pascal.

    great impressions - wonderful tour
    Actually, we only wanted to make a short stopover in Bruges. The tour and then driving to Paris. Stephanie made the walking tour so interesting that we decided to spend the rest of the day in Bruges. Even my 11 year old daughter loved it. Thank you for the great impressions. Nice to meet you :-)

We really enjoyed our tour with Stephanie. It was very informative, fun and we got to taste real Belgium chocolate.

I would highly recommend this tour that is free to book, you pay what you think it's worth at the end or I guess what you can afford.

If you want to see some secret places in Bruges and find out more about the well trodden paths then this tour is for you : )

Thanks so much Stephanie

Stephanie was an extremely kind and personable guide who taught us lots about the beautiful city of Brugge. She spoke clearly, making it easy to hear and understand in a big group. She kept a perfect pace for the tour. We even had free chocolate as promised at a kind family-run shop. She reassured us that there is no pressure to make purchases and ensured we were all comfortable. Additionally, throughout the walk, Stephanie recommended more things for us to see and places to eat. Giving a bit of history into all the major places we visited, her tour was a wonderful introduction to the city as we arrived to the city for a daytrip as a group of friends. Highly recommend!

My friends and I, whom are all international students except for me, took this tour by Stephanie. We all very much enjoyed it. Stephanie speaks very clearly and explains everything very well. she's also is very friendly and pleasant to listen to. It's also very appriciated how she's open for small talk. As a Belgian, I can also confirm that the information provided is very accurate. The tour takes you through the most important places in Brugge, and also informs you of some activities that you can partake in after. At last, you'll visit a familiy owned chocolade shop so you can get a little taste of authentic, Belgian chocolade + you get a 5% discount!

The fact that this tour was also completely FREE makes it very much worth it.

I highly recommend taking the tour and supporting Stephanie as she does this on her own and definitely desereves it.

Thank you for this amazing review! It made me so happy to read this! It is always nice when i get to show someone from Belgium a city in their own country and help them see a side of it they hadn't before. It also is very nice to teach new things but to also be told my accuracy of my facts was spot on! It was lovely to meet all of you and I'm more than happy you enjoyed the tour as much as you did. Thank you so much for taking the time to come here and publish these wonderful thoughts for me and for fellow travelers to see. See you next time! :)

Stephanie led us on a fun and informative walk around the city of Bruges. She shared both historical facts as well as giving us practical advice for navigating the city. It was nice to get started in the morning before the streets became too crowded.

Stephanie clearly knows what she’s doing! We attended her free walking tour with our 5 kids (ages 4-16) and they voted her the best tour guide we’ve had in the last 6 weeks we’ve been traveling. She provided the right amount of history with humor and was attentive to all the guests various needs (dog, stroller, etc). I highly recommend her tour. And the chocolate shop she took us to visit was amazing with no sales pressure at all.

Stephanie is a U.S. ex pat who moved to Bruges 5 years ago when she married her husband. She has accumulated a vast amount of knowledge on the history of Bruges which she freely shares!! She has a very sweet and accommodating disposition. Her ability to project her voice is incredible- she does not yell to get above the din, but rather projects her voice towards her group. We found Stephanie by accident!! We had to cancel a walking tour due to unforeseen circumstances. We were exploring Bruges when we heard Stephanie speaking to her group. The rest is history- we asked for her business card and subsequently signed with her. Book with Stephanie and you will not be disappointed.

I know exactly who you are :) and i thank you not only for writing this great review, but delivering very kind words on the day itself and here that truly confirms why i love my job. I also enjoyed having the two of you. It was so nice to always look up and see a huge smile on your face. If i could do everything you just names for everyone i come in contact with, every single day would be made for me. Im so glad you two ended up finding me and were able to join my tour and allowing me to give you the experience you both truly deserved. Again i thank you for this touching, heartfelt review you took the time to leave for me. See you next time ;-) safe travels to Antwerp!

Although we had a late night on Friday, I am glad that we didn't miss this tour on Saturday morning :) Stephanie is explaining this beautiful city and the stories with a nice humor, she has a nice balance of walking and explaining time. Time flied and we didn't even need coffee to wake up, her energy was more than enough. Don't hesitate to book this tour with her and enjoy!

Stephanie waa very friendly did a great job of herding her group of 20+ around the busy centre of Bruges with her pink umbrella. She spoke very clearly and gave us some nice interesting facts about the history of Bruges, way better than the boat tour we also took.
The chocolate tasting was short but tasty.

Stephanie met us on our rainy first day in Bruges (Dec 23) and her bright smile and knowledgeable recommendations conveyed her love for her beautiful adopted city, even in the cold wet weather. We found her easily, under her cheery pink and white umbrella, and she adjusted her pace for us as we went, stopping when we wanted photos. She expertly navigated the maze of the historic city center, pointing out sites we shouldn't miss during our stay and offering a local's recommendations. Stephanie answered all our questions and gave us a comfortable and relatable introduction to Bruges. We're so glad we met her first - highly recommend!

Excellent tour and tour guide. Stephanie is so sweet and cheerful, so easy to talk to and encourages questions. She is passionate and enthusiastic about the history of Bruges which comes across during the tour. The tour covers all the main attractions of Bruges and she includes nice little snippets of information that you wouldn't find on the internet. She speaks clearly and is very considerate of any additional needs you may have. Would highly recommend.
