From Brussels: Bruges and Ghent in a Day Guided Tour
- Duration options: 10 - 10.5 hours
Jamal was fantastic. Very intelligent, funny and personable. Got to know each of us and interacted with all our backgrounds and experiences. Couldn’t say more great things about Jamal. My daughter sprained her ankle the night before the tour and Jamal ended up carrying her on his shoulders, wasn’t anything he would t do to make the experience memorable. Thank you thank you thank you for the best tour guide we’ve experienced. If you have one day to spend in Belgium and haven’t got a clue what to do - you must book this trip. We really enjoyed Brugge, wish we could spend another day there, so much beauty to see and explore. Gent was just as beautiful but from a different perspective. You won’t be disappointed in choosing this trip.
Jamal was an absolute pleasure! He is uber-smart, very knowledgeable, and very personable. Jamal was everything mentioned in the other posts. During our tour, there was a lovely family from Australia, two Americans, and myself (American). Jamal got all of us talking and having fun. He interjected humor into the history lessons wherever he could. He also took the time to entertain us for a very nice lunch in Brugge. After the tour, Jamal was even nice enough to take me to grab a quick bite to eat at one of his favorite local eateries. As I don't eat meat, he personally communicated to the chef to make me the best vegetarian meal they could. This really meant a lot to me. I look forward to a future tour with Jamal.
Our guide, Vita, was wonderful! It was a lovely tour and we enjoyed not only our guide but the other guests on the tour. Just a fun day of seeing beautiful Belgium cities, hearing history of the area, sipping hot chocolate and tasting fabulous chocolate! Lunch in Bruges at Blossom was yummy and the Flemish Stew tasted especially good on a chilly day. Blossom also had the best Chardonnay! Delightful! All in all just a relaxing, fun, day in Belgium. Made better by having everything handled for you by your tour guide, Vita.
Jamal, our tour guide was very helpful. He based his tour on the architecture and history of Bruges and Ghent which made the tour extra fun and fascinating. He was very interactive with the group; thus, it was less talking at us but talking with us. We went to chocolate tasting and shopped around while taking in the beautiful scenery of the churches and main squares. It was a very personable tour and I learned a lot. I have been on many tours and I can say this by far has been the best! Highly recommend.
Good long tour. We shared the bus with people who had booked Spanish version of the same tour and hence each explanation was first given in Spanish and then in English which was annoying sometimes. Our guide Jamaal was quite funny. You will like him if you are ok with satire. He tried his best in explaining about the places we were visiting and some background stories as well. Overall a nice experience.
