Full description
Meet your guide in the Grand Place, in front of the Brussels Town Hall, then travel to the station and board the train to Bruges. Enjoy the views of the beautiful Belgian countryside of Belgium along the way. Arrive in Bruges at 11:00 AM, and your guide will lead you through the wonderful streets of the "Venice of the North" to visit some of its must-see spots. 

See the Belfry of Bruges, the Church of Our Lady Bruges, the stunning Markt Central Plaza, and wander through the UNESCO World Heritage listed historic center. Explore the Basilica of the Holy Blood, a church that claims to house a revered relic of the blood of Christ. Learn about the history of the city that has been the economic-cultural center of Belgium for hundreds of years from your expert guide. 

Hop on another train at 2:30 PM and head to the medieval city of Ghent. This city, which is not far behind in terms of the beauty of its streets and buildings, contrasts with Bruges as it is a less touristy city and more adapted for the comfort of its residents. Visit the historic center, hear about its network of channels, and learn why Ghent is known as the "City of 3 Towers". Your tour will end at 5:30 PM, when you take the train back to Brussels.
