Owner description: Everyone, who visites Bruges, the Venice of the North, is sure to make a boat-trip on its famous canals. Our embarcation point is situated in the heart of these beautiful surroundings. Boat-trips take about 30 minutes and you will see beautifull places that you can only see by boat. We run 7 days a week from march till the end of october from 10 till 5 o’clock

“Canal trip probably worth 30 minutes”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2013

A good way to get a quick canal view of the town centre. However, the boat was too crowded, which spoils the enjoyment and makes photography difficult. The guide's job must be boring and his commentary confirmed it.

“Awesome Views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2013

These canals are less frequent than Amsterdam, which gives them their own individual appeal. It also adds to the historic atmosphere that the city slaps you in the face with. I'd pretty easily say that Brugge would not be nearly as charismatic of a city without its canals.

“Brugge Canal Tour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2013

Paid 8 Euro for a nice relaxing water tour, which the wife loved. There is a different perspective from the water and the guide provided English commentary. Took lots of photos along the way. We have been on lots of boat rides in many countries, to include Venice. But, I say never pass on an opportunity for a little boat ride with the wife, especially a cheap one, short one.
