Owner description: 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 went to Belgium in May and took a sidetrip to this truly magical city. While there we took a canal ride. The price was economical and we spent a 30 minute guided water tour of the city. It was truly jaw dropping to float by all the magnificent old buildings that date back centuries. All of this has been... More

A canal ride in Bruges is almost as obligatory as doing one in Amsterdam. It's a much smaller affair in this Belgian city but still well worth doing. For 7.60 euros you get a half-hour tour of a stretch of the canal which winds its way through the city, together with guided commentary. There are a number of places where... More

The canal ride was fun and interesting. Be sure you find a boarding area that isn't crowded. It's a not more comfortable if the boat is not filled to capacity. While on the tour, we saw boats that had half capacity, but purely for comfort. It's great even if it's full too!

If you have been to Amsterdam and have sometime in Bruges to just walk around then I would pass on the canal cruise. We took it, it was nice, the sun was shining but Bruges is tiny and the sites were not all that special. If you dont have the time, It is a definite do as it was very... More

A great way to spend some time on a warm sunny day. Good narration in several languages. A great way to see the sites of Bruges.

This canal ride didn't show anything that we hadn't seen on the walking tour! We should have use our time exploring the cute shops.

There are some beautiful cities in this world but Bruges would take some beating. Having visited Venice, Tallinn, Prague and Paris recently, I feel I am in a position to comment. This place is unbelievably picturesque and to get the full impact you must take the canal cruise. This place out-Venice's Venice! There is very little about Bruges that isn't... More

I had hired a cycle to go to Damme and this boat passed me, would have used it if I had known as it looks a gentle way to view the countryside, just sit back and relax.There did not appear to be many trips in a day. What to see in Damme, the church, some artwork and a view of... More

There's nothing wrong with the trip itself, though it's just half an hour spent chugging along a straight canal with boring views, but the real problem is the destination. Damme is a tiny place with approximately one moderately attractive building. The only things there are a load of restaurants apparently set up to fleece unfortunate tourists who are stuck there...

As part of our Baltic trip we experienced the MAGIC of Bruges. It's cobbled stone streets , beautiful old european style buildings & homes look like something out of a movie. Bruges is small & easy to walk around & enjoy. Take a 30 minute canal cruise when you're there, it's worth it. Browse the shops for homemade delights and... More
