What is a “Photo Tour”?
A photo tour is at heart a walking city tour combined with a photography workshop towards discovering locations and improving photo results both on tour and afterwards.
Photo Tour Brugge offers you a chance to discover Brugge in a photo-focused way, as well as a chance to pick up a few (optional) tips towards better photography. With both ‘open’ and private photo tours on offer, we humbly believe we offer a photo tour for all photographers..

“Open photo tour” vs. “Private photo tour”
We offer 2 booking options for our photo tours in Brugge: Open photo tours and Private photo tours.
INSERT VS BLOCK
All photo tours include a +1 “non camera” friend that may join for free but take no photos.
What if it rains?
Our photo tours operate rain or shine.
In light rain we push through with umbrellas, and even help you improve your technique in the wet. If the rain gets too serious we’ll then either move inside for indoor shooting and/or photo-talk over a coffee at a cozy café.
Please note: Booking for ‘open’ photo tours are non-refundable except at our discretion. However, we also understand the rain can “suck hard for photos” and offer a 50% refund up to the start of the tour if there is water on the ground and you wish to cancel.
If -we- cancel due to heavy/unsafe weather, you are offered a 100% refund and our thanks for your understanding.
What’s a +1 “non-camera” friend?
A +1 “non camera” friend is a partner or friend that may join the (paid ticket) photographer at no extra cost. While this guest is welcome to join us on the tour listen in, they are allowed absolutely no photo taking themselves.
Please note: That includes both big cameras and small, even a cameraphone counts as a camera!
Equally, +1 guests must remember that we’re here for the photographers first, and therefore priority on tour is given to the camera crowd first and foremost.
We obviously won’t be ignoring you (far from it), it simply must be kept in mind on full tours especially.
Are children included as unpaid guests?
While we love kids and encourage them to join the photo tour either as guests or a +1 “non camera” friend, we don’t include children without charge as guests if not included in our +1 policy.
As an exception, babies (up to 3 years old) are permitted to join without charge. One unpaid baby per paid guest only.
As a further exception, any child (5-8 years old) who’s registered as a photographer will be loaned a waterproof/shatterproof camera at no extra charge. Please note: Parents are responsible for the camera cost (200€) if lost or broken on tour.
