Itinerary

Day One

Leaving the local area in the early morning we'll journey to France. We'll then travel to our hotel in the Brussels area, stopping en route for the chance to have an early evening meal (payable locally).

Day Two

After breakfast, come with us to the centre of Brussels and explore the city's fabulous Christmas Market at your leisure. Browse the 240 wooden chalets, based around the beautiful Place Sainte Catherine, looking for unusual gifts, traditional decorations and local delicacies.

You may also like to join our optional half-day excursion to Ghent - a medieval city of beautiful waterways, quaint cobbled streets and more listed buildings than the rest of Belgium put together.

Day Three

This morning we'll check out of our hotel and head to Bruges, famous for its picturesque network of canals, fine medieval architecture and the increasingly popular Christmas market held in Simon Stevinplein. Shop for unusual gifts, decorations and delicacies, and soak up the atmosphere, before we return to board the ferry/Eurotunnel and head for home, arriving in the local area by the late evening.

TOOTH

Stoke-on-Trent Single traveller
Very good holiday. Coach trip was longer than expected but that was due to customs with the French Authorities. Charlie the tour manager kept us entertained and informed throughout. We arrived late at the hotel so we were restricted with the evening meal. Hotel staff were pleasant. I think there was some issues with a party going on the top floor. I fell asleep fairly quickly and didn't really hear anything. Wish we had more time in Bruges.

Although Brussels and Brugge were very nice, it took 14 hours to get to our destination on the Friday and we did nothing else!! We also only had 3 hours in Brugge!

Dear Claire, thank you for your review. We are sorry that the outbound journey took longer than anticipated. We try to allow 3-4 hours in both Brussels and Bruges although this will always depend on the traffic conditions on the day. The very nature of road travel means that travelling times can vary and we apologise that you had less time in each city than you had hoped.

EMMA

Burton upon trent Couple
Holiday to travel ratio slightly out. Not enough time in bruges and Brussels. Should probably be for 4 days to cover more. Preferably a night trip into the centre as best time to hit markets and the atmosphere.

MARK

Ipswich Couple
Apart from very heavy traffic on way journey to hotel was fine - we didn't have the suggested group menu at hotel but those who did found the service very poor as they couldn't cope with the numbers - Markets in Brussels on the Sat morning was basically shut and tour manager didn't seem to know this however we had the optional visit to Ghent which was excellent - by the time we arrived back in Brussels it was in full swing. Good trip to Brugge on the way back and arrived home at a decent time
