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

“Great way to see the sights”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

This was a great way to see the sights of the city. You can get on boats at a number of points in the city centre - I think that they all follow the same route. The commentary was in a number of languages - and it was an interesting method of becoming a bit more familiarised with the layout of the city - and the background to some of the old buildings. Worth doing

Reviewed October 4, 2013 via mobile

This was a good trip n showed us many of the sights. Would be good if done on your first day on the city.

It was quite a short trip, but all you really need

“Amsterdam it 'aint but still quaint”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

Finding rain in Brugge is like going to the beach and finding sand; you simply expect it. The folk are stoic and accepting and the tourists are too, although invariably less well prepared. Now Amsterdam, Brugge ‘aint, but nevertheless a canal boat ride is mandatory to see the still largely medieval skyline, the bent bridges, the ancient houses of wealthy merchants and the sites of long gone Consulates. And unlike the titanic-sized tourist boats in Amsterdam, all Perspex and plush, the Brugge boats are more life-boat class, windswept and wet when the sun is not shining, but still worth the effort for the sights are superb. And afterwards, there is always a warming, drying café … and some reviving friets.

“Good value for money and great view of Brugge”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

30 minute trip was long enough for us, very interesting architecture and did not have to queue for long . Sometimes the boats are very busy and packed
