Spent half an hour on this trip, which is a great way to see the city for 8 euros. Very informative captain and best way to see the city in my opinion. Much better value than the horse and carriage tour which we also experienced...More

We took the 30 - 40 minute tour of Brugges and it was well worth the fee. There are many architectural sites best seen from the tour. Our captain was interesting and entertaining. If in Brugges, don't miss this tour

The hour cruise which leaves every twenty minutes or so gives you a lovely view of Bruges. You can’t visit Bruges without doing this!

took this trip on a sunny afternoon and got a different perspective of the old town from a pre-recorded tape admittedly but still informative

This is another MUST-DO attraction to do in Brugge. Very relaxing, beautiful scenery and buildings, all complete with a flock of swans and ducks along the side of the canal.

Essential to any visit to Bruges. Bruges has been called the Venice of the north. Its quite true, albiet a mini version of Venice. We recommend that you take the cruise early in the day as you will see many sights to explore latter on....More

The kiosk was easy to find and also had a very reasonable price (2 adults = £16). Our tour guide was funny, made us feel comfortable and told us a lot about Bruges.

May depend on whether those people sitting next to you are okay with it as it’s pretty cozy seating when the boat is full.
