The boat ride was very good, even though it was really cold! But we really enjoyed ourselves! Youi can see the whole city from within the water! The price was very logical and you can bet that you will wish it was longer...

Great way to see the city and see the architecture. They offer tours in many languages. It was shorter than I expected.

this was a pleasant way to see the city from a different vantage point leaning about the canals and buildings along the way.

This was the second time I had been on Bruges boat trip and sat at the back this time. I really enjoyed the trip and seeing Bruges from the water but sadly could not hear the guide speaking hardly at all. Highly recommend the trip just could not hear it the guide as we were sat by the engine and... More

Now, I'm not one for taking part in blatantly touristy attractions, but my wife really wanted to take the boat ride around Bruges, so I joined her on the trip. It was actually quite an interesting trip, with lots to see and hear about (from the informative pilot). It passed a pleasant half an hour so. Highly recommended.

The boat tours are a fun way to spend between 30-40 minutes touring the canals of Bruges. They really try to fill the boats up, so be prepared for lots of people in a small area. Also, if there are children on the tour or if there is a lot of other noises it may be hard to hear the... More

When my family and I stayed in Brugge for a couple of nights stay, we did the classic canal boat tour on a sunny late morning. The guide was friendly, funny and helpful; helping my dad get in and out the boat with crutches. The tour was historical and beautiful. We were spoken to in English and part Dutch, so... More

In this tour you can see all of Bruges. Although there was a long queue, it was worth waiting. The canals are amazing and the scenery is great. We took great pictures.

The second time we have taken this tour. A nice trip around the waterways of Bruges on a very crisp but dry day in late december. We were sat at the back of the boat and could not really here the commentary made by the driver, but to be honest it did not really matter and the whole family enjoyed... More
