What can I say. This was an awesome trip. I'd go around Christmas so that you can experience the Christmas Market. It was great weather for walking around and exploring as well as taking a boat tour in Bruges. Ghent was gorgeous especially at night - the town lights up with all the festive lights. do not miss out on the Christmas Market there too. When coming back to Brussels if its on Christmas Eve, most of the restaurants close earlier than usual to celebrate over the Christmas meal. Christmas day, most everything else is open (Brussels).

I would definitely recommend this tour to everyone, the tour guide Stefan was very nice and knowledgeable. Being able to see Bruges and Ghent was great as they're both beautiful cities!! The coach was also great :)

Highly recommend you go for this tour if you’re short of time and would like to visit Ghent & Bruges in a day. The tour was highly efficient. And the bus ride was comfortable. No complains, value for money!

Very interesting tour of 2 medieval cities. Learned a lot about the amazing history of the place. Tour was very well arranged. Highly recommended.

Great day tour with good amount of free time in both Bruges and Ghent to wonder and enjoy after your guided walking tour in each
