The walk is pleasant (and the tour is much cheaper than going by train or renting a car; Bruges is a beautiful town and full of interesting nooks and crannies; but above all Enrique was an exceptional guide. Enrique's explanations were complete, detailed, knowledgeable, and as well expressed in Spanish as in English.Everyone in our group was impressed and very pleased with the preparation and dedication that Enrique demonstrated, and they certainly added to and greatly enriched the experience.

Glad to have been your first "internet booker". We felt very welcome and received an interesting explanation and all our questions were answered neatly. The three tastings afterwards and the tasty snacks on a nice terrace completed our visit nicely. By the way, a nice walk along the canal from Eindhoven center. I'm afraid the bottles we took with us won't last long. Best of luck with your fun project. Thank you !

The tour was great, this was just to look at the museum and when you get there if you buy a ticket for the stadium tour the museum part is included. Really good experience though even bought a scarf at the end. Good luck for the season

Our guide Juan Carlos was excellent, he explained every detail of the tour. The company complied with what was agreed in schedules and service.

The host was really really good and we had an awesome experience to Bruges from Amsterdam
