GEOTOURS has developed a couple of guided tours for small, individual groups. Walking tours, tours by minibus or coach and by electric bicycles . In a region where there’s always some wind coming from the North Sea, touring on an electric bicycle is a real pleasure and the range of your sightseeing in and around the city of Bruges increases. Add to that your private guide and your day can’t go wrong!

Latest Customer's Opinions:
have just returned from an aMAZZZING trip to belgium to tour waterloo. we had the best guide ever, so knowledgeable and friendly, easy to talk to. The new museum at the battle site was really good especially the 3D movie cinema, you felt as though you could walk amongst the scene. Hougoumont farm was just as good. If you go book Georges you won't be disappointed. we hope to do the somme soon. guess who we will be booking? see you soon Georges regards Jan & Jim
