This was one of the best activities I did with my wife during our three day visit to Bruges. Pieter showed us a lesser known part of Bruges with great enthusiasm. He showed us many details in the city that we would not have noticed otherwise. Very nice to go through the city in a fast and easily manoeuvrable rickshaw. My wife especially enjoyed it. She had many questions that Pieter was able to answer well.

Be on time and you will see the most important things in Bruges in an hour. The guide was also neat and very polite And told everything about the special things of Bruges There was also plenty of room to ask questions yourself. In short, a successful ride

Booked a one hour tour. Very friendly guide who told us a lot about the city. It was not a standard story and he knew how to answer our questions. Highly recommended!

I would highly recommend to go with guide Stephanie and she is wonderful and explains you very well about the place.

Great service and guidance . Our guide was excellent
