Many visitors to Belgium make sure to include the lovely medieval city of Bruges in their vacation plans. This enchanting city is often called "The Venice of the North," because of its beautiful waterways and canals. Your private tour in Bruges should definitely take in a delightful boat ride along the historic canals of Bruges, allowing you the opportunity to relax and take in the scenery. You'll be able to absorb the full beauty of the city's intricate medieval architecture as you enjoy a comfortable boat trip.

We will take a walking tour of Bruges in the historic city center, and visit The Markt Square. Here you will view the magnificent 83 meters high Belfry Tower which dominates the Markt. We may even hear the enchanting carillon of the 47 bells. In the center of the Markt Square is the statue of Belgium's most patriotic heroes, Jan Breydel and Pieter de Coninck.

Our private tour in Bruges will include a visit to the sacred destination of the Basilica of the Holy Blood, a stunning cathedral wherein rests a cloth said to have been used by Joseph of Arimithea to wipe blood from the body of Christ. From this significant stop on our walking tour in Bruges we will proceed to another location also in Burg square, the glorious gothic Town Hall.

As a professional private guide in Bruges, I have always enjoyed taking my guests to see the picturesque stilt windmills on the outskirts of the city. One of them dates from the 1700s and still grinds grain today. Just a few miles northeast lies the medieval town of Damme, where we can climb to the top of the tower of the Damme Church for a magnificent view of the lovely Belgian countryside.
