Cancellation Policy

What’s the cancellation/refund policy?

However, with open tours booked you may:

  • Request a 50% refund up to 3 days before your tour start time.
  • Request a full refund for exceptional circumstances (at our discretion).

A 75€ cancellation fee is applied if you cancel you tour less than 3 days before scheduled.

Where is "Essential Brugge" option (October to April) ?

From October to April in Brugge, there are a few factors that made us decide to “close” the Essential Brugge option for open tours.

  • The light is shorter, especially in this Northern and flat corner of Europe.
    Closing Essential Brugge allows moving (hugely popular) Hidden Brugge to that timeslot and making the most of that routes’ offerings.
  • It’s chilly if not flat out cold, brrrr!
    Ok, maybe not my native Canada cold… But you feel it during winter when the sun goes down, wouldn’t want you freezing as you get to the windmills.
  • Still possible for booking as a private tour.
    I’d never not offer you an option if determined to join Essential Brugge, so when unavailable as an open tour you still ALWAYS the option of a private tour.

No luck or success? Please contact us.
