  • This boat ride is very nice! For only €8 sail about 30 minutes along the most beautiful places of Bruges. Very good value for money. Also since you're so on spots that you didn't know. Here you can walk better himself later dropped by. We also had a lively, spontaneous Guide. Really a must when you are in Bruges!

  • Our B&B owner suggested we take a boat ride to get a different perspective on the city. She said it was worth it although it was touristy. We took her advice and did it. The weather was off and on rai...  more »
  • Great way to spend 40 minutes get a different perspective on Bruges as you travel around the canals on a cold day in Feb. Boats are a little packed and the commentary was a bit scanty but the scenery ...  more »

  • This is an excellent little tour of some of the canals through Brugge. We were lucky enough to board with a lot of English speakers so the information relayed by the boat driver was done in English. He was informative as well as hilarious. It’s a beautiful ride, despite the boat being crammed as full as possible. I very much enjoyed the tour and it is a great price.

  • If you want to hear about the history of Bruges and watch beautiful buildings at the same time, you must definitely go on a boat trip! Our captain had a wicked sense of humour, we extremely enjoyed the half -hour trip. Be prepared to wait for quite long time for the boats, though.
  • Would 100% recommend. As Brugge can get extremely crowded (especially on week ends!), it's nice to escape the crowds for an hour on the canals. However, line ups are very long so I'd recommend going early - most canal tours start at 10:00 and are all the same price.
  • Great little boat ride up and down the river through Brugge with multilingual commentary from the captain. They like to cram the boats full, but at only €8 per adult and €4 for a child, totally worth it. Compare that to the €50 horsedrawn carriage rides and this is a bargain! Get in line as soon as possible, as it can get busy on sunny days.
