What a fun way to see the city! Sometimes you cannot hear the speaker over the people but it was informational and beautiful. They did a good job in multiple languages and staying on schedule. Would recommend to anyone visiting!

A great introduction to Bruges. Pleasant 30 minutes with a commentary that gives an impression of the town and its history.

The tour was only half and hour but was very scenic. The guide didn't offer too much history about the city and could only talk about things along the canal. It was still very relaxing and I think you definitely need to see the city...More

Cost us only €8 for what was described as a 30 minute tour but lasted longer. The boat driver gave a guided and spoken tour throughout which was good as lots of history about the town from someone who lives there. Lots of swans about...More

I wish we had started our day in Bruges here. The boat is cramped and everyone is packed in but you do get to see all the sights and know what you want to explore more in depth. I found the lace map of the...More

Just buy on the day (earlier the better) and choose a quiet jetty to board, there are about 8 areas to buy tickets so like the other reply, just choose your spot. The lines moved quickly and there's lots of boats so you... More
