Thank you Louis, you not only got to know us Bruges in a very pleasant way. The extra quotes and stories were really the icing on the cake. Our daughter is a huge fan now. The way you respond to the interest of your group is great. We'll be back for sure.

a pleasant walk with many nice stories and fine details. We wanted to explore Bruges off the traditional paths. That has been very successful. Our entire group - 4 young adults and us as parents - listened with interest. Also thanks for the tips on addresses for beer, chocolate and cocktails! One has certainly been tried.
