    Bruges

    We hope you had a good rest, because your trip is about to start. We’ll meet you in Brussels downton at 8:30 am, so be sure to be there punctual! From here on your adventure begins and you’ll travel directly to Bruges. You will be aching to get there, cause believe us when we say that this city is unique

    The city will receive you with his first attraction, the Lake of Love, and just to clarify: The name’s not casual. This place is a little heaven on earth designed to captivate the hearts of those who contemplate it. Make sure you have your camera ready! From there, you’ll get to the Princely Beguinage Ten Wijngaerde, one of the most iconic places is Bruges and one of the pieces that conforms to the World Heritage that this city is taking care of.

    You’ll also get to take a walk on the Walpein’s square while you admire the church of Our Lady of Bruges, where the sculpture of the Madonna and a Child created by Michelangelo. An opportunity you can't miss to see one of the best sculptures of Miguel Angel

    The Gruuthuse Museum is also one of the stops we’ll make on our road to the center of the city. This amazing place keeps some of the hidden artwork gems of the city, so make sure you visit it before you leave Bruges -if your heart can survive leaving the Venice in the North-. 

    Before arrival at the Rosary Quay, one of the hotspots for taking a picture or a selfie -we know y’all will take A LOT of selfies there-, you’ll get to cross the Saint Boniface bridge, another place known for its unrivalled beauty and the gorgeous views of the canals

    At this point we’ve arrived at the main protagonist of Bruges: The Historic Center. Declared Humanity’s Heritage in the year 2000 and full of mindblowing facades, this part of the city is its biggest charm. On Burg's Square, the beating heart of the city, you’ll be able to enjoy the true essence of Bruges and also learn a piece of its history.  

    In there, you have to absolutely make sure to place your eyes on the Basilica of the Holy Blood. This outstanding edification is one of the most eye-catching things to see in Bruges, so you must totally not miss it. Built in the 12th century, it was destroyed and later reconstructed in the 16th century in a Gothic Style. Even though, in the 19th century, it suffered another reform that transformed the place in the current Basilica

    For last -but not least-,  we’ll see La Grote Markt, the main square of Bruges. There, you will see the famous Belfry of Bruges, an imponent medieval bell tower of 83 meters of height known for its carillon bells, which announce a big variety of events in the city. This city will blow your mind!

    Ghent

    Leaving our hearts at Bruges, it's time to lose our minds at Gante. Heading towards one of the best preserved mediaeval cities of the old continent, we’re going to get amused by one of the best historical centers of europe. This city was the second most populated in Europe during the 16th century, and this is the reason why it is so well preserved. 

    During our trip on Gante, our guide will show us the historic centre of the city, where we’ll meet the Town Hall, whose facade will shock you all (in a good way).  From there you’ll see the three main towers in Gante. One is in the Saint Bavo's Cathedral, the first one you’ll see. This 89 meters tall building, is where the Diocese of Gante is located, and receives the name of Saint Bave of Ghent. Also, inside, is the well-known ‘Adoration of the Mystic Lamb, a polyptych altarpiece considered a masterpiece and one of the world treasures.  

    Nearby is the second tower, the Belfry of Ghent, a 91 meters tall building placed right in the heart of the city. On top of it (if you have a keen eye) you’ll see the symbol of the city, an imponent Drake.

    Finally we’ll reach the third tower, St. Nicholas Church, one of the oldest and most relevant places of the city. Near the bustling Korenmarkt (Wheat Market), the church quickly became popular between the different trading guilds of the market, and in response the church builded chapels for some of them. His tower, the third, completes the sky view of the city, and its also a mandatory place to visit at Gante

    But this is not the end of it, you’ll also get to see the Gravensteen (literally translated as "The Castle of the Counts") and the canals of the town. You’ll also visit the Meat Market and the Fish Market, both amazing places to see as a way of ending a perfect visit to Gante. 

    This city will blow your mind for sure with its unique beauty and its amazing constructions before you go back to Brussels, so be ready to never want to go home!

    Don't miss this opportunity to discover two of the most impressive and gorgeous cities of Europe, and get your tickets now for an unforgettable experience with our tour. Take your chance!

    It was too fast pace. It would be better to have the whole time with the guide & take it easy. Versus being in a hurry to do everything in one hour. The fact the bus tour was mostly in Spanish & didn’t translate the recommendations in English that were given to the Spanish speakers. It seems the bus driver is also irritable or in a hurry from what the tour guide said — bus driver never said anything tho.
