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 enjoyed this short boat trip along the canals a great deal. It certainly offers an opportunity to see Brugge from a different perspective. We were blessed with fantastic sunny days (in October) which added to the experience, as did the comedian who was driving the boat!! Fairly good value for money and we'll worth taking the time out to... More

Enjoyed a summer day on the boat along the canal to Damme city. Enjoyable ending in a small city. ALot of interesting shops. And small restuarant with snacks to meals and terraces to enjoy a drink before return ride.

We went on this boat as we had been told about it. A bit disappointed but saw Bruges from a diffferent angle I suppose. Only 30 minutes up and down the canals and all enjoyed it. Only 8 euros each as well.

I was a bit worried about doing to many tourist things like this but glad I overcame my snobbishness. The trip is about 30 mins and you get to see Bruges from a very different angle, please do make the effort, it's worth it.

What a great experience! The fact that it was an exceptionally mild and sunny November day really helped. The trees were at their autumnal best. The views were stunning. Our guide was informative and very funny. Definitely saw things that we would not have seen if we had just walked around. Followed it up with a fabulous lunch in the... More

Bruges is absolutely beautiful. Belgium is incomplete without Bruges and Ghent. We did a day tour with Brussels City Tour. The old lady, our guide, was as perfect a guide can be. Polite, knowledgable and no rush. The canal tour, probably 30 minutes, may be more too, is a must do. The town is well preserved. It has been kept... More

Having walked the streets and seen the sights, I need persuading that a canal trip was worth doing - they were right it was, we saw things we missed, got some more information and a totally different perspective on Bruges - its a must do.

Initially thought that 8 euro was not worth spending having walked all the streets. However, the boat trip gave a different perspective to the city and was well worth the money.

We loved Bruges, including a beautiful boat cruise on the canal. "Picturesque" doesn't come close to describing Bruges. This is an amazing place -- and this is a fun way to see the city.
