Wish I could give 6 stars! Martin lead such an interesting and interactive tour that it didn't even feel like 2 hours! It could have been 3 hours and we would have enjoyed in the exact same. We were there on a Sunday night and didn't have anything to do in the evening so we did the evening tour as well, which added even more information to what we learned on the day tour, and it was different enough to be enjoyable. Please do this tour with Martin if you're coming to Bruges!
