It was amazing and coach departed on time - got to see the beauty of Bruges and Ghent. Jamal was very knowledgeable, relatable, friendly, enthusiastic and funny - he made the history of both Bruges and Ghent interesting and he is a great asset. There is quite a bit of walking so you’ve got to be fit enough to do that and speed walk if you’ve got to get the coach from Bruges to Ghent on time so plan your discovery time well. I don’t think I need to do cardio or hit the gym for another year.

Gent and Bruges are fantastic, but without a good guide you will just see panoramas! Andrea was perfect guide, knowing alot of history and many details! She made that trip unforgettable! Only can recommend this perfect day! Bravo! Very satisfied! Program was organized very well, free time too! Thanks for this opportunity!
