The Belgian capital is one of Europe’s lesser-known gems, yet it’s fully worth a visit. In addition to some of the best waffles and chocolates worldwide, the city boasts an amazing array of things to see and do. Not convinced? Here’s a sample of highlights.

French fries? Belgian fries!

As any Belgian will proudly tell you, they are the true inventors of the deep-fried potato. Try out the Belgian fries and decide for yourself whether the much-touted double-frying method is worth all the hype (best enjoyed together with a steaming bowl of clams, which restaurants customarily serve with a bottomless side of fries).

    Very beautiful places! The guide was very nice and you learn a lot. The guide was very nice and knows a lot of history. Ghent was amazing… and Bruges very beautiful!

    Our guide really knew the history around these 2 incredible cities and was always very patient and kind. Time of the year (end of October) though, not the best period to go there since springs already over so not as beautiful as we expected. Also get ready to walk quite a bit if you are willing to get to know as much as possible during the day. While buying the tickets they offer Hotel pick-up (in city center only), however when I requested it, they said I must go to the tour starting point without further explanation why. So do not actually count with Hotel pick-up even if you are staying at the City Center. In general, a nice day tour and worth the money.

      We enjoyed our Ghent-Bruges tour immensely. It was very well organised, the commentary was very informative and friendly and the guide, Jasmine, imparted so much information. The whole day was wonderful!

    A decent way to see both cities in one day. Includes a lot of walking, especially in Brugge – maybe the buses could pick up people somewhere in the city so that you would not have to walk back and forth from the parking outside the Old Town? Timing was not that great, delayed in leaving Brussels and total lenght more than 10 hours, not 9,5. The guide (Frank) was not too clear about the biggest art pieces, the Mystic Lamb in Gent (in restoration, but this could have been explained more cleartly) and Michelangelo in Brugge (needed to walk back a long way to see it as no time to do that during the walk was given).
