|This trip starts in Brussels and ends in Bruges, two names known for their architecture and chocolates. You’ll be staying in Antwerp, the diamond center of Europe where you can buy a few stones from the money you saved on this tour. There is Ghent, a city where few things have changed since the 1500s. The meals on the barge, breakfast and dinner deserve a Michelin star, the bicycling is on flat terrain with ever-changing scenery. Beer is certainly a good reason to take this tour: Belgian beers are winning every contest, don’t take my word for it, try them all. The biking is between 15-20 miles per day with plenty of stops in between and lovely canal barging. In short, if you sit on this for too long others may beat you to it.
