My friend wanted to try the tour with the horses so there we go. Must say it was a nice enjoyable tour, we had walked to all those special must sees but with the horses it was another way. Its a nice ride, you see all the special plavces, the driver gives a good explanation. It takes around 35 min i think.. in my opinion worth the money.

We took a ride for our young daughter’s benefit. While our daughter was excited about riding in a horse drawn carriage, we adults were expecting this to be a bit of a rip-off. And so it proved. As soon as you board the carriage you get patter about tips, which isn’t a good start! As you are taken around the set circuit you get a few snippets of interesting info and you get to briefly wander around a pretty canal-side setting on foot at the midway point of the circuit, while the horse (and driver) are fed and watered. If you’re going to do this then do it at the very start of your Bruges experience, otherwise you get to see all the same tourist attractions that you can meander by on foot in the space of a leisurely morning. You pay a set fee of 55€/carriage for a “30-35 minute ride” that actually translates into 20 minutes of actual transit time with the obligatory “5-6 minute“(closer to 10 minute) midpoint stop. Our 8 year old loved it, because she didn’t have to pay. Also, despite the reassurances, I am not convinced that this grinding routine is good for the horses, ours was showing signs of knee joint problems at the end of our trip.

Very nice way to see the city and the tour guide was quite good with information. Bit pricey at 50 euros + a tip but not many places you can do this so worth it and better value as 5 of us in the carriage.

We had reservations about this tour but its worth it. Its 50 for the tour and if you want commentary it's expected to pay a tip. The tour is 35 minutes long with a 5 minute stop for the horse. We felt like we were the only people on tour and its so personalised and romantic. We paid our female guide 60 euro and she was happy with that. Took pictures of us too when the horse stopped for a break. Very helpful and lovely. Highly recommended.

This was our first trip to Brugge (Bruges) and our only day there. Watched the tours setting off while we lunched, it looked fun so we took the plunge for our first ever horse drawn carriage ride. Our driver was friendly and welcoming and very informative about the city. It’s a good route so you see plenty of sights, which we then walked back to so we could explore further. The horse has a good rest, drink and bite to eat half way and we sat and relaxed while it did. All the horses seemed well cared for. Cost of €50 plus tip was fair and we felt it was value for money as a treat. Experience was 30 minutes and just a fun and a silly romantic thing to do on the spur of the moment.
