My husband is always skeptical of walking tours but even he really enjoyed our time with Bram, our guide. We learned a lot about Bruges history while seeing the less touristy but more interesting streets of the city. It was also nice to be walking in the evening, seeing the beautiful old buildings all light up. The tour lasts, as advertised, 1.5 hours. Walking fast the time flew by. A real bargain (as it’s tip as you wish. We tipped $10 US) and very much worthwhile!

Louis took us on a great walk through Bruges. Despite the rain, he kept us entertained with an eclectic mix of stories, ranging from spooky to historical and even comical. We loved the personal touches and that he stayed behind at the end to answer our questions. Louis is so knowledgeable, passionate and friendly. Thanks for a great night, and for the excellent recommendations for local restaurants - 10/10!

Lavigne is a lovely, friendly, excellent tour guide. She obviously has a passion for the wonderful city that she lives in and enjoys sharing her knowledge and interesting stories. A wonderful mix of facts and funny tales. Her dog is also a fun part of the walk.

Jonathan was a great tour guide. We got to see places and hear funny stories about Brugge in a friendly and informal way. Was especially nice to hear the stories behind the diverse architectural styles of the city. Enjoyed it and would recommend this tour to anyone interested to get to know a little more about Brugge!

Great experience! Our guide, Emiel, shared his passion for History and Brugge, with many anecdotes and interesting facts about the city, which definitely made the tour super interesting.
We went through a part of town that we didn't take the time to visit before, so that was perfect! The group was fairly small (10 pers.) and the night light gave a nice atmosphere to the visit.
We finished the tour with a beer all together in a bar. Definitely recommanded to book!

We had a lovely guide with her dog. And you see that she does it with a passion for the city and buildings it was very nice to have such a great guide who was super hyped to tell us everything . It's a great tour zelf voor west-vlamingen die de streek kennen maar de verhalen achter de gebouwen nog niet. SUPER zeker een aanrader en het hondje was ook een toffe en aangename touch

Had a wonderful time on this tour on our short visit to Bruges. We did it on our first night and went back to some of the highlighted areas the next day.
Louis was our tour guide, very knowledgeable and obviously has a lot of love for his city. He had a lot of fun and quirky stories to share and was able to recommend further visits and activities during our stay.
Just make sure to wrap up warm.

We had our tour with Louis. Although it was raining, Louis was shining with enthousiasm when he was telling us about the legends and stories of Brugge. We were thankful for his recommendations of bars, activities and restaurants around Brugge. To top it all of, he handed us an amazing business card with a beautiful picture of Brugge on it.

Thanks Louis! :)

There were 8 of us waiting at the meetup point and the tour guide never showed up. After contacting Legendary Tours via email, they only replied hours later without much help.

Very disappointing set of circumstances . :(

Hi, we are so sorry about the absence of our guide on this particular tour. When we were finally able to contact him, we received news that he was hospitalized. We apologize for the inconvenience, as this was beyond our control. We hope you were still able to enjoy your evening in Bruges. Kind regards, Legends Team

I don't usually do walking night tours, but this one was awesome. Louis was a great guide - professional, funny and knew his stuff. I can tell he is proud and happy to show off his city to people who really want to learn. The tour was small - thank you COVID - and moved a a reasonable pace. Although it was dark, Louis made sure the group stayed safely out of the roads and watched out for hazards along the way. I passed on the free beer, but still enjoyed the entire night tour. Bruges is a beautiful city by day, and I love I got to see how lovely it is at night.
