Step back in time and discover one of the brightest jewels in Belgium’s crown on this 7.5-hour Bruges city tour from Brussels. Explore the ancient cobbled streets around Minnewater (Lake of Love). Discover top city attractions such as Our Lady's Church, the Market Square, the imposing Belfry and the 12th-century Basilica of the Holy Blood. Gain insight into Bruges' medieval heritage from your guide. Enjoy free time to shop for souvenirs, sample a traditional local café or explore the UNESCO World Heritage-listed city at your leisure.


  • Excellent value for money
  • Day trip (destination A to B)
Following a convenient morning pickup from your Brussels hotel, meet your guide and hop aboard your air-conditioned coach for the 1.5-hour journey to the UNESCO World Heritage-listed city of Bruges. Widely considered among Belgium’s most beautiful cities, medieval Bruges boasts charming canal ways, cobbled streets and centuries of history to explore.

Begin your walking tour by the tranquil waters of the famous Minnewater (Lake of Love), one of the most delightful corners of the city. Follow your guide and discover top attractions such as Our Lady's Church — home to Michelangelo’s magnificent 16th-century marble statue, Madonna of Bruges — and the Market Square with its grand Belfry.

Admire Bruges’ beautiful Town Hall Square (Burg) and the ornate façade of the Basilica of the Holy Blood. The basilica was originally constructed in the 12th century as the residence of the Count of Flanders, and houses a vial he brought back from the Holy Land believed to contain the blood of Christ.

At the conclusion of your walking tour, enjoy a little free time to explore further at your leisure. Peruse the shops and boutiques for souvenirs, wander down winding alleyways lined with traditional cafés or perhaps take a boat tour along Bruges’ picturesque canals (own expense).

When it’s time to leave Bruges behind, hop back on board your coach for the return journey to Brussels where your tour will come to an end.

We really enjoyed this tour! My husband, two kids ages 11 and 8, and I really enjoyed visiting Bruges. Our tour guide, Andrea, was wonderful and explained history to us as we drove thru Brussels, the countryside, and Belgium. In Bruges we walked while Andrea gave us a tour of the city, we had free time to explore and she arranged a canal bus ride for our group. We also had lunch in Bruges, typical Belgium food, it was good. The bus ride was comfortable and safe. Thanks!
