The Programme

Day 1 - Antwerp

Join us on a journey to the stunning city of Antwerp, Belgium! This city, located in the north of Flanders, has a rich history as one of the wealthiest and most influential cities in the world during the 16th century. Its stunning architecture, including the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Cathedral of Our Lady and Market Square, will transport you back in time. But Antwerp is not just a city of the past - it is a modern, cosmopolitan hub of culture, fashion, and diamonds. See the works of famed painter Peter Paul Rubens, explore the Diamond Quarter, and indulge in some of the world's finest fashion. Antwerp is truly a destination that belongs on every traveller's itinerary when visiting Western Europe. Don't miss out on this incredible opportunity to experience the magic of Antwerp!

Day 2 - Brussels

Brussels showcases the complexity and multicultural richness of Belgium through its historical buildings of diverse styles, which testify to the city's economic and cultural wealth for centuries. Known for its stunning architecture, delicious chocolate, and of course, the famous Manneken Pis statue, Brussels is a must-visit destination. We'll take a walking tour of the city centre, visiting the Grand Place, the Royal Palace of Brussels, and the Atomium, among other landmarks. And, of course, we'll make time to discover the culinary specialities of Belgium (including waffles and chocolate) and indulge in some shopping.

Day 3 - Bruges


Next up is the fairytale city of Bruges. With its picturesque canals and medieval architecture, it's no wonder that Bruges is often referred to as the "Venice of the North". This historic city is well-preserved and has remarkable cultural heritage. You may recognize it from the movie "In Bruges", featuring Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson.

We'll take you on a stroll through the city's well-preserved historic center, where you can admire the beautiful buildings and houses that date back centuries. You'll get to see major attractions like the Belfry, a famous 13th-century tower, and Basilica of the Holy Blood, which contains a bottle said to contain a drop of Christ's blood. We'll also take you to the Church of Our Lady, where you can see Michelangelo's famous statue Mary and Child, and the Beguinage ‘Ten Wijngaerde’, a former monastery for Benedictine sisters. Join us for a tour of this beautiful city and discover why Bruges is synonymous with enjoyment in Belgium!
