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...More

Firstly - the cost - £50 euros. This is a per carriage price, so for a maximum of 5 people it works out at 10 euros eacH. The carriage rides always start and finish in the Markt, except for Wednesday mornings when a Market takes...More

We loved the ride around the city. It was really informative and the children could stroke the horses and loved the ride. We did have dry pleasant weather. We looked at other reviews before doing the ride and the drivers do tell you up front...More

We had a brilliant stay in Bruges finished off on the horse and carriage ride. Bit of a queue and when the carriages were all out that was the only way of finding where to get on. Having said that it was well worth the...More
