Excellent experience. Recommend you do all 3 parts; the VR, the tour and the tower. The lady at the counter, made me feel a little inadequate because I did not understand her instructions. She shook her head and made a comment to another person. Besides that, the experience was great. Beware, there is some full frontal nudity (briefly) when you get to the ‘bath house’ portion. If you have little children with you, have them look at something other than the screen.

A must see! The entire experience was awesome. There is absolutely no better way to understand the history of Bruges.

Very nice experience I learned lots of things about beer, and how to find my type of beer much easier.

A very interesting and informative experience with a novel approach.

A brilliant way in getting to know Bruges for all ages.
