When in Bruges, there’s nothing like viewing this historic city from its canals. These affordable, 30-minute boat tours follow the same routes and offer commentary in several languages. But because they’re incredibly popular with visitors, don’t be surprised by long waits in line.

We took a cab both to and back from the dock (a necessity due to the elderly in our party; having a cab company on speed dial was a lifesaver!). I didn't hear any tour guide narration, but did simply enjoy the thirty minutes on the river. There really wasn't anything to do there, though we had a nice lunch... More

Damme is a lovely quaint little village where the boat drops you. However not a lot to do there and we struggled to fill the 2 hours until got next boat back. Church was closed and only really eating places and bookshops. No gift shops other than a bit in one of tea rooms.

Take this tour to see the best of Bruges from the canal perspective. The boas are clean and quiet and you'll get the best of information about this amazing city! We loved it!

This trip was real value for money. The guide was very knowledgeable and even cracked a few jokes. We were really lucky to have a lovely, hot day so this made it even more enjoyable. The only downfall was the guide asking for a tip as we got off the boat. Don't get me wrong, i don't begrudge giving him... More

This boat trip takes you from bruges to damme if you are staying in central bruge you will probably want to get the bus to damme port as it is quite a walk, the boat trip is very relaxing and has a on board bar, it takes about 30 minutes and takes you through some nice fields and buildings along...

Really great way to see the city from another angle. Tour lasts about 30 minutes and you can learn so many interesting things about the city. Really good picture moments too. Even if you've been to Bruges before I would recommend doing this trip as you see the city from a whole other angle and can get to places where... More

The best way to see fabulous buildings along the canals. Incredibly informative guide with a great sense of humour and a little irreverence! Gives you some history, many great photo opportunities and a rest for your feet for 30 mins!

We only had two days in Bruge and wanted to show our children of six and nine as much of Bruge as possible, as quickly as possible due to their short attention spans and adversity to walking in the cold! It was drizzling when we got on the boat, and as it isn't a covered boat we got a bit... More

Lovely canal ride and brief history of city and its neighborhoods. About 30 minutes long... A nice respite for your feet while your eyes still feast.
