Very good tour to Bruges

Was a very good, interesting tour. There were only myself, my partner and two other couples in the English guide bit, which was very good as we could go in smaller areas to see things. The guide explained Bruges very well, could answer questions and pointed out the best chocolate shops! There was a bit of disorganisation when obtaining the train tickets and then the platform for the train changed (which was nobody’s fault) so we felt we wasted about an hour waiting. The guide was very helpful, explained how to get back to the train station afterwards and which train to catch. She even took us to see the foundations of a Cathedral underneath a hotel, which were very interesting! She also took us to a Catholic ceremony in the Basilica, which was beautiful inside, however we are not religious so felt it wasted some time. My only downside was we were not set free until 3pm, had nothing to eat since breakfast, and all that walking, could have done with snacks. Overall beautiful city!

Really great way to see Bruges in one day! We covered all of the hotspots and there was time to have a meal and get in some shopping. James was an excellent tour guide. Very knowledgable and friendly.

An excellent trip.
