Overview

Let us invite you on a tour that will make your day in Belgium an unforgettable memory. You'll visit Bruges and Ghent, two Belgian cities whose beauty delights every visitor. And we'll make sure you don't miss a single essential element to enjoy the full experience.

When you step ashore in Zeebrugge, you will be greeted by our English-speaking guide, who will lead you to an air-conditioned coach. A carefully planned itinerary, tailored to your cruise schedule, will allow you to make the most of your precious time. No stress about transport (port pickup and drop-off), a punctual return and an experienced guide who will be on board at all times - guarantee a pool of wonderful memories.


Market Square
The best way to explore the city of Bruges is to start with the vibrant Market Square, surrounded by historic guildhalls and the iconic Belfry. The ornate facades, the soaring bell tower - all remind you of Bruges' rich past. Let yourself be absorbed by the beauty of the place, and our guide will make sure you don't miss any attractions.

This is also the perfect place to sample famous Belgian delicacies. How about a traditional Belgian hot chocolate with waffles? Or Belgian fries with a sip of craft beer? Decide for yourself while enjoying the charms of the market.


Basilica of the Holy Blood
Then, after a short walk, we will head to the Basilica of the Holy Blood, a sanctuary of religious and architectural significance. This example of Gothic and Romanesque styles houses a revered relic believed to contain a drop of Christ's blood - hence the basilica's name. The silence and tranquility of the interior will allow you not only to admire the beautiful ornaments, but also to relax and reflect for a while.


Gravensteen
Afterwards, our luxury coach will take you on a tour of Ghent. Even this comfortable ride will be an opportunity to admire the beauty of Belgium. For example, the impressive Gravensteen Castle, which will not be easy to miss. The medieval fortress with its massive turrets and imposing walls is a testament to Ghent's rich history. Our guide will be happy to tell you about its rich past - a symbol of power and authority in medieval Flanders. In addition, the picturesque landscape may surprise you with its famous windmills. Some of them are still in operation and please the eyes of observant tourists. 


St. Bavo's Cathedral (Sint-Baafskathedraal)
You've already had the chance to experience the beauty of the Basilica of the Holy Blood in Bruges. Now let yourself be invited to the Cathedral of Saint Bavo, a place of not only religious significance, but also proof of Ghent's artistic talent.

The beautiful Gothic architecture - tall spires and ornate stained-glass windows, are sure to stay in your memory for a long time. The interior, as beautiful as the exterior, houses the Ghent Altarpiece, a masterpiece of Flemish craftsmanship.


Graslei and Korenlei
Then, taking a bit of a break from the hustle and bustle of the city, we will take a slow stroll along the shores of Graslei and Korenlei. This will be an opportunity to admire the perfectly preserved facades of the historic buildings of the former trading post along the waterfront - evidence of the medieval past. As you stroll along the cobblestone streets of the canal promenade, let yourself be absorbed in the peaceful atmosphere, a past point connecting Ghent to distant corners of Europe.

Culture is learned through cuisine, and Belgian cuisine has many delicacies to offer. Our experienced guides will point out tried-and-true restaurants where you can try the authentic taste and traditions of Belgian cuisine. From traditional moules-frites to Belgian waffles, how about innovative interpretations of classic dishes? 

Relax and recuperate in charming surroundings while enjoying the delights of Belgian cuisine.


Cruise Terminal Zeebrugge
At the end, our coach will take you back to the port for a stress-free boarding. No need to nervously glance at your watch - the tour is tailored to the ship's schedule, so there's no stressful return or missed attractions. We'll make sure you feel the tranquillity of the tour, and allow you to enjoy the wealth of Belgian history from our passionate guide. If you're looking for a guarantee of time well spent, an experience of the beauty of Belgian culture and an appreciation of comfort, you couldn't have come to a better place.
