    Our private tour was amazing!! Igor was an excellent guide and gave us the perfect introduction to the city and even gave us the perfect recommendations for waffles and hot chocolate!

    Our guide , I believe Ivan was his name, was very through and full of interesting insights on historic and contemporary Bruges. One of the best!

    This tour is totally amazing! I came to Brugge, with little expectation, few knowledge of the city. However my guide Patrick has so much love for Brugge and is contagious! I have learned to admire this quaint town more! We went to places that are not famous to most tourists, that’s the beauty of this tour! What I regret, I should have spent more days in Brugge. I will definitely recommend this tour to my friends, and without a doubt I am coming back! Thank you Patrick for this very memorable experience.

    The tour guide was knowledgeable and enthusiastic. She was a local who knew the history and folklore of Bruges. Couldn't have asked for a better walking tour.

    Excellent and insightful guide. Quite pacey which we liked and included insights on the main areas but as interestingly a lot on areas outside the main touristy areas. Set us up very well for the rest of our trip and the choices for further exploration were bang on. Igor was an excellent host

    A great way to learn history of Brugge from a local person with cultural pride. Lots and lots of walking on cobblestone streets in the pouring rain. Be sure to dress in layers, bring an umbrella and comfortable shoes. It was 3 hours long and could have been a bit shorter. Our guide, AnneMarie, was delightful and so proud of her Brugge. Chocolates were a sweet surprise to the tour.

    Ann Mary was our guide. She started the journey with the background of the city and throughout gave us proper information about the places we visited.

    Fantastic tour with lots of interesting facts and personal insights presented. We really enjoyed it all.

    We had close to a 2 1/2 hour walking tour with Nathan. We found Nathan to be to be friendly and very knowledgeable tour guide. We appreciated the fact that the tour included areas not normally occupied by tourists that we were able to return to on our own the following day. The only issue we had was that Viator states that the tour includes food tasting, which it did not. The closest thing to food tasting consisted of being offered to share a morsel of a piece of chocolate at a chocolate store. Suggest that Viator address this issue with the vendor or remove that information from its advertising.

    This tour was well worth the money. Our tour guides was a local who did an excellent job enaging my 10 and 14 year old daughters in the history of Bruges. He even recommended an awesome local restaurant for some local Belgian dishes. I highly recommend this tour. Well worth the money especially if you aren't spending a lot of time in Bruges and want a quick 2 hour review of the city. Also, since it was a private tour we started a little late with no problem.
