Canal Trip/Tour - Sat 10 Feb

Having done a little research on would I be correct in thinking that it's still off season so these do not run at this time of year? We are a party of 5 - does anyone have any other recommendations for good city tours that we could join instead? Or if it is possible to take a boat tour would really welcome details of any companies that offer these for the weekend we are there. Thank you in advance for any replies. :-)

IF the weather is fine, one of the operators will have boats out. It is just a case of walking round the landing stages until you find the right one - your hotel or the tourist office may well know, but the circuit is quite short and you will want to walk round it anyway as that is the main point of visiting Brugge.

Gruuthuse operates at weekends during the winter, from the Nieuwstraat landing stage: www.boottochten-brugge.be/en/faq/MTUwNA-- (click on "plan" for map showing where to board).

Otherwise you have the City Tour by minibus - not hop-on, hop-off: http://www.citytour.be/ and of course the horse and carriage rides: http://www.hippo.be/koets/carriage.htm

There are probably walking tours on your date, but you can just as easily google for those as anyone else could. Or wait till you get there and ask the tourist office/ see what flyers they have at your hotel.

You can also do your own walking tour, see …compaqnet.be/Pieter.Blommaert/WandelingBrug…
