Transfer to Bruges and embark on an orientation walk

Transfer from Amsterdam to Bruges, then enjoy an orientation walk with your City Host as you get acquainted with this charming city.

DAY 17:

Delve into Bruges with a walking tour and canal cruise

Enjoy breakfast at your hotel, and then embark on a walking tour of Bruges. Explore the Market Square and see the iconic Church of Our Lady from the outside — its tower is the second-largest brickwork tower in the world, and is truly a sight to behold. You'll also set off on a canal cruise that will allow you to admire the arched bridges and charming gardens as your boat plies these tranquil waters. Your afternoon is at leisure to explore the same canals, as well as the lovely homes once owned by wealthy textile merchants. You can also discover Bruges' restaurants and shops, perhaps even seeing some hand-made lace, a product for which Bruges is renowned.

Included Meals:

Breakfast

DAY 18:

Discover the city’s magic on your own, or opt for some “Bruges Delights”

Enjoy breakfast at your hotel, then a day at leisure to discover this magical city on your own. Or embark on an optional tour of "Bruges Delights." This is a foray into the city's culinary treasures, and will take you to a chocolatier, a local pub for some beer tasting, and a stop for a delicious Belgian "lace cookie." This is an ideal excursion for those looking to taste some of the country's signature food and drink. Dinner is on your own this evening.

Included Meals:

Breakfast
Optional Tour: Bruges Delights

Bruges Delights

  • Approximate Cost: $75 USD per person
  • Approximate Time: 3 hours

Among the most famous “Delights” are the Belgian Chocolates – nothing like what you find in other parts of the world; much richer this chocolate is a true treat – simply awesome. Hear how to make the perfect chocolate – while tasting one. Continue for sampling delicate and elegant, lace cookies. Named for the lace-like holes that form as they bake, these buttery cookies are light and crisp yet packed with a ton of flavor.

If the food doesn’t do it for you, you might enjoy the beers. This little country makes a lot of beer (almost 200 breweries reside here!) and really good beer — from Flemish reds to lambics, dubbels to blondes. You probably won’t be able to try them all, but while on cruise, you’ll have the opportunity to taste a few.
