We had already been on a horse and carriage tour so this felt a bit superfluous though it was still good. Difficult to hear the guide at the back of the boat so try to sit upfront. It was very cold but still enjoyable.

On a cold morning, we had a great boat ride. The guide was really informative and the tour is a great way to see a lot of Brugge in a short time

Lovely way to see the city, though only if the weather is decent. The tour was about 40 mins long which is good, not great. You'll get loads of cracking photos though and it wasn't pricey (around 10euro a head if I remember correctly).

The boat trip was a great way to say goodbye for us to this beautiful city. I quite enjoyed to see buildings from a different side and point of view. However, December is not the best time - it is very cold and when two...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.
