Tour description provided by Viator

Discover two of Flanders' special gems on a full day trip to Ghent and Bruges. No visit to Belgium is complete without a visit to these two beautiful cities, just a short drive from Brussels.

After a one-hour drive through the scenic Belgium countryside you'll arrive in Ghent. Here you will visit the St. Bavo Cathedral, home of the world-famous "Mystic Lamb" painting (optional, closed on Sunday).

During your city tour of Ghent you will see important buildings from the Middle Ages, such as the Belfry, the St. Nicolas Church and the Castle of the Counts of Flanders.

Next, while driving through the Flemish countryside to Bruges, you can hear an audio history of Flanders, Ghent and Bruges via headphones. Upon arrival in Bruges, you'll visit the Lake of Love (Minnewater) and the Beguinage (convent). Take advantage of some free time to enjoy lunch (not included) before you start a walking tour to discover: Our Lady Church with a statue by Michelangelo, the Market Square with the Belfry, and the Town Hall Square (Burg) with the Chapel of the Holy Blood.

After the walking tour you can take an optional boat cruise along the canals. You will depart Bruges at approximately 6:30pm.
