Did you know that the city of Bruges, in Belgium, is a "must-see" in tourism since the 18th century? At that moment, aristocratic young men (and sometimes also young ladies) lived the so-called "Grand Tour" experience, a journey of three of four years of travel around Europe. Places like Rome, Paris, Amsterdam, or Bruges were essential to complete this "rite of passage". Are you ready to find out what it was that attracted these young adventurers so strongly? Be amazed by a place whose architecture has changed very little in the last 500 years.

Preparing for your Experience
This is a private Live Walking tour. You will be connected via Zoom and your guide will explain to you all the experiences while walking on the street. We love curious people, so the more questions and interactions you have with your guide, the better!
You need to have the software Zoom installed on your cellphone, tablet, or laptop; and also a stable internet connection, speakers, or headphones.
Also, remember always the time difference when choosing a time for your experience. We usually accept requests starting from 10.00 am to 8.00 pm (Brussels Time - CST + 1 UTC), and from Monday to Sunday.
Meet Your Guide
We are Curiositas Mundus, a team of three professional guides (Laura, Miriam, and Samuel) deeply in love with Belgium. Every year we receive lots of international groups that want to see the best cities and museums in this part of Europe. We work with schools, families, companies, VIPs, non-profits, seniors, special needs... in English, Spanish, and French. And now we want also to share all these amazing places, cultures, and heritage with people that prefer to enjoy a staycation or a holystay! Are you open to all the surprises that we have prepared for you?
