Love Bruges. 2nd visit to this city & managed a horse & carriage ride & a Zot brewery trip as well as shopping, eating & drinking. Always lots to see with fabulous cafes/restaurants to sit & soak up the atmosphere.

We did a tour of the city alone and then did one with a real tour company. It was so educational. I highly recommend a walking tour guided.
