Having sailed from Southampton on P&O's Azura cruise liner, a day in Bruges proved to be unmissable. A free shuttle bus to the train station, and £8.00 return ticket to Bruges, a 15 min walk to the centre through cobbled streets, and there we were. Without a plan, we found the 'i' info office in the museum in the main... More

We were really impressed with this tour, we went with another couple, the guys were a bit dubious about such a touristy activity and we weren't expecting much for €8 but we were all happily surprised, it was great value for money the tour took you all the way along the canal, it was really interesting and the guide spoke...

Nice peaceful trip with good English speaking guide. For 8 euros each it was a bit brief but very nice views and sights you otherwise can't see.

for only 8 Euros the tour is well worth the visit, it takes around 30 minutes for the tour and the boat driver ? spoke very good English

Was a nice educational boat road with self proclaimed local James Bond. Lasted about 30 mins through the canal. Young kids could get a bit bored after a while. Saw the historical places and this is a must do in Brugge.

A wonderful, picturesque tour of the city. Bruges is a great place to see by boat. The tour guide was also very informative.

There are plenty of places in the city to pick up a boat tour and most seem to provide a half hour tour for 8€ (4€ for children). We boarded near the fish market. Commentary was brief but was given in 4 languages so I guess there was only a limited time. So many picture opportunities, and the good thing... More

We did the canal boat trip on the first day of our stay, and it was included in the Bruges City Card (which I strongly recommend as it is excellent value). We do not usually do these types of tours, but this was excellent. Our multilingual tour guide gave very interesting information on numerous buildings, statues and bridges as we... More

Not usually one to take the tour bus or boat, but this one was enjoyable and informative. Multilingual captain worked hard to entertain and educate on the 30 minute tour. For the 8 Euro fee pp, it's money well spent in expensive Bruges.

We did this on our first day and found it to be that perfect introduction to Bruges taking in many of the sites in a unique and fun manner. The driver had a great knowledge of the city and could answer any question. I would recommend this for the excellent experience but also as an introduction to Bruges if you... More
