    We meet in front of the statue on the main square (Grote Markt) of Bruges. Look out for the guide with the red umbrella. IMPORTANT UPDATE DURING CHRISTMAS TIMES: Until the end of the Christmas market on January 8th, we meet in front of the former post office, the current Medi-Market on the main square of Bruges (next to the Belfry Tower). Look out for the guide with the red umbrella. Remember: if it's not red, it's not legendary!

How much does this tour cost?

Very nice tour, we had a nice day. Walking didn’t feel too much but it was cold so we were quite freezing standing around. We made more stops. Wear extra layers next time! Super fun and bubbly guide! I recommend this as it a great way to see the city and get explanations.
