Beer, though in a pipeline under the Belgians' cobbled paving grounds, flows literally across the fairytale streets of Bruges, the capital of West Flanders. That means you will not only talk about chocolate in Belgium, right? Let’s move on. “It becomes eternal love, when you walk across the bridge and kiss your loved one”. That’s what they say in Lake of Love (Minnewater) and Lovers Bridge.
Along with the swans, you will admire the beauty of Minnewaterpark in Bruges. You have been waiting for this. Without the boat tour on the Bruges canals, a visit to the beautiful city of Bruges is not complete. A half hour boat trip will take you out of this world.

After Bruges you will head towards the capital, Brussels. Check in at the hotel in the city centre and some free time to relax and chill out. For those who have some energy can enjoy the nightlife of the capital. Rest of the night is yours.

Belgium's biscuits are also renowned and therefore we will crown the tour with your visit to the town's traditional biscuit shop from the 17th century. You will now head towards one of the hidden secrets of Brussels “Théâtre de Toone”.
Here is the sad story: The actors were not allowed to raise their satirical pieces against the Spanish rulers during the Spanish occupation of the Netherlands. The result was the doll shows. The fierce dialogues, pronounced with lifeless dolls, were easier to tolerate. By 1830 the puppet theatre, then in Marolles, was opened by Antoine Genty.
This popular entertainment has become a Royal Puppet Theater over 180 years later. Whole history lies here so just listen to the rest of the story. Your return journey from Brussels to London takes about 6 hours arriving at midnight. We do hope you enjoyed your Belgium getaway with its rich history and culture. See you again in one of our tours soon.
