Well worth the money to get this unique view of the city. Good value at £8 per adult and £4 per child for a half an hour trip. The guides also offer a useful insight into the buildings of the city as you go.

Just the right amount of time and a great overview of the City. Our guide was a bit harder to understand but I think that is because we sat near the back where the engine box is. Kids (9 year old twins) enjoyed it as...More

Sorry for delayed reply. There are at least 3 places to pay/catch a boat and the town is very small so hard to miss them!

They don't take prebookings as far as I know. It's a question of buying a ticket (cash only) and queuing. There are a number of pick up points around Bruges. Google Bootochten Brugge for more info.
