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.

“Bruges- quick and full view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

In Bruges, take a ride on a boat to see some of the town's history. A tour guide will explain some of the fascinating buildings of the town and their history. Very enjoyable, and especially if you have a short time to see the town. It takes about half an hour and costs about 10 euro. If in Bruges, don't miss the boat ride.

“Canal Trip Bruges-Damme”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

Excellent trip and a great way to get a sense of Bruges. If you have limited time, then you should definitely do the boat trip. It is only 35 minutes and about Eur7-8.

“Good fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

been to Bruges a few times but never taken a boat trip before, should have done it sooner! We joined the boat under the window with Marylin Monroe in- you will know where this is when you see it! The queue was all the way back to the ticket booth but the boats run in threes and so we didn't wait long. The tour was in English and Flemish but as we sat towards the back of the boat it was difficult to hear anyway! It didn't matter as the tour was great, a really different perspective on the city, a good way to see parts of the city that we wouldn't normally see.

“Romantic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

Although our boat was quite full, the boat ride was quite fun, as we were able to enjoy Bruges from a different perspective. I was amazed to see so many flowers and enjoyed especially going under bridges, which gave me the opportunity to take some great shots. The ride lasted about half an hour. I noticed that there were different companies offering such trips. As they all follow pretty much the same route, they are all pretty good!

“Beautiful Bruges at its best!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

We visited Bruges for a short break this year from 26 - 29th August. One of the trips we really wanted to do was the half hour trip along the canal, a great way of seeing the city. The trip was 7E 60 each and there are many different landing jetty's but all charging the same amount so it doesn't really matter where you start your trip. We probably boarded at the most scenic part of the tour (see photos).
We were fortunate as the weather was lovely, so we definately saw Bruges at it's best.
The boats hold about 20 people and it was quite squashed but that just added to the fun. the guide spoke in several languages and was informative. They travel quite slowly so there are plenty of photo opportunities. Definately a must whilst in Bruges!!
