With its authentic medieval architecture and scenic canals, the so-called "reien", the city really is fairy tale material and on thу other hand, there is no other place in Belgium like Ghent where contemporary design, art, fashion, gastronomy, and music blend so perfectly with the past.

Private 10-hour Tour to Ghent and Bruges from Brussels with Hotel Pick Up

Bruges and Ghent are two charming, small towns in Belgium, each just a short train ride away from Brussels. In a perfect world, Bruges and Ghent each deserve their own day for exploring. However, if you are short on time, you can visit Bruges and Ghent in one day. We visited Bruges and Ghent in one day from Brussels. It’s a long, busy day, but we loved it. For the best experience, you need to get an early start. Bruges, the more popular of these two towns, tends to get very crowded midday. To avoid spending your valuable time in line, get to Bruges in the morning. On this day trip, you can stroll fairytale streets, dine on waffles and chocolate, take in the view from two belfries, go on a canal cruise, and visit an ancient castle. Here is our exact itinerary through Bruges and Ghent. Enjoy!

We're so delighted! It was really interesting, fascinating and attractive dive into the history and lifestyle of Gent. The guide is a real pro. It seems like they know the story behind each building in the city. The time has passed very quickly. The walking tour of Gent with Jurgen was one of the highlights of our trip. Jurgen, being a professor of history is not only knowledgeable on the history of Gent but his passion for the subject is incredible. We learned a lot and saw many of the historical and key sites in the city. Highly Recommended Tour for those who are looking for a private walking tour of the city. 5 out of 5 stars. This is a great experience! Jurgen is a knowledgeable and thoughtful guide. A perfect tour for first time visitors to Ghent. Jorgen was such a pleasure to spend a morning with - we enjoyed our walk, and getting to chat with a local who really loves his town.
