Tour Details

This full day Belgium tour shows you the Flemish side of this remarkable country. With your expert guide, spend your Saturday in Belgium with a small group touring the fascinating cities of Ghent, Bruges, and Ostend. Take a canal ride, sample North Sea shrimps right from the ocean, and immerse yourself in the unique and historic culture of Flanders.

Your Flemish adventure begins in the bustling city of Brussels, Belgium's capital. From there, you will enjoy comfortable transportation to your first stop of the day, the medieval city of Ghent. Unfortunately, most visitors to Belgium skip a trip to Ghent. They miss out on the unparalleled Saint Bavo Cathedral, with its magnificent architecture and the "Mystic Lamb," the famous altarpiece painted by Dutch master Jan Van Eyck. You'll get to see all this, as well as the exquisite towers of Gravensteen Castle and the picture-perfect waterfront guild houses along the Graslei. Be sure to bring your camera to capture the 14th century belfry that towers above the old cloth hall and has been listed as World Heritage site.

After your guided Ghent tour, continue to your next Flemish locale, the charming and picturesque town of Bruges. The words "quaint" and "romantic" are a gross understatement when describing this popular Belgian destination. You'll see Bruges from a canal boat as you glide along its peaceful waters. Every turn brings you to another postcard-ready vantage. Your Bruges tour also includes a walk along its cobblestoned streets to visit the Chapel of the Holy Blood, where crusaders brought back from their battles a portion of Christ's blood and built the chapel to house such an important relic.

The last stop on your Flanders full day tour is the resort town of Ostend. Its sandy beaches, heated seawater pools, and ample harbor space make this seaside locale a favorite for vacationing Europeans. The resort also boasts its own racetrack and casino for non-stop entertainment. While enjoying the ocean scenery, get a taste of the area's amazing North Sea shrimp, a local delicacy. Once your Ostend tour is complete, you will conclude your day with a pleasant ride back to Brussels. This comprehensive Flanders tour includes lunch a la carte, complete with a selection of delicious local gourmet items. Like many Belgians, your tour guide is multi-lingual, fluent in English, French, Spanish, Dutch, and German. For an unforgettable experience in Belgium's northern region, Flanders, join this extensive day trip from Brussels.
