Step by Step

Enjoy a very complete excursion to Antwerp and Ghent from Brussels, where you will leave the capital early in the morning to make the most of the day and explore the most beautiful places and monuments of these two essential destinations in the Flemish Region.

You will be accompanied by a professional guide who will give you the best recommendations to get to know both cities. All on a bus tour from the centre of Brussels, where you will be able to relax and dedicate yourself exclusively to enjoying the trip.

You will discover the natural and architectural beauty characteristic of Flanders, adorned by beautiful water canals, small bridges and luxurious vertical buildings. The perfect postcard to explore Antwerp, the 'city of diamonds', places such as:

  • Atomium: this steel-made sculpture, made up of nine spheres representing a crystalline iron structure, is a must-see photo stop in Antwerp
  • Het Steen Castle: you will be amazed by the beautiful medieval castle that served as a fortress in the Middle Ages to protect an Antwerp in full commercial and port development.
  • Grote Markt: in the GreatMarket Square you will see the town hall, the Brabo fountain and a variety of bars and restaurants that sit adjacent to the river Scheldt.
  • Antwerp Cathedral: as you enter this Gothic-style church dating from 1352, you will see spectacular works of art by the likes of Rubens, Murillo and Otto van Veen.
  • Meir Street: you will feel the typical local atmosphere of the city as you walk along Meir Street, the commercial epicentre of Antwerp, with a myriad of shops, terraces, bars and restaurants.
  • Central Train Station: as if you were inside a royal palace. That's how you'll feel when you enter the train station, a fourteen-track building that boasts a 75-metre-high glass dome and marble details throughout.

In Ghent, one of Belgium' s cultural and port destinations par excellence, you'll have the opportunity to visit iconic sites, among them:

  • Ghent Bell Tower: the impressive bell tower, which was begun in 1314, forms an enclave with two other monuments, the Church of St. Nicholas and the Cathedral of St. Bavo.
  • St. Nicholas Church : a Gothic and Romanesque church with an incredible natural light inside, thanks to the effect of the rays of light that pass through the crossing tower.
  • St. Bavo's Cathedral: when you enter this cathedral you will see the Van Eyck brothers' The Adoration of the Mystic Lamb, one of the most influential paintings in the world.
  • Korenmarkt: enjoy Ghent's liveliest and busiest atmosphere as you walk around its main square, surrounded by numerous bars and restaurants worth visiting.
  • Sint-Veerleplein Square: another charming square in Ghent, where the river Lys and the Lieve canal meet. It is the site of the Ai Nati Oggi monument, which lights up every time a baby is born in the city.
  • Gravensteen Castle: the 'Castle of the Counts' is a 17th century fortress that represents the most medieval and ancient Ghent, with dungeons, towers and dungeons worthy of the period.

At the end of the programmed activities with your private guide, you will be able to visit other places of interest on your own, as you will have enough free time before returning to the bus back to Brussels.

    The river was divine, it looked like a mirror of water when you saw the houses reflected on the surface.

    Everything was perfect, from the guide with a great smile to the breathtaking views, but I feel there should have been something more to the tour.

    The houses seem to be taken out of a painting, it has such a peculiar way of construction that leaves you impressed all the time.
