Different view of the city

The boattour is a good way to see the city from a different view/angle of the city. It is a good way to see the city in a short way and you get a bit information about the city.

Very romantic and even for locals a great thing to do! You see the town from an other perspective. The guide was very funny, not just an overdosis with data and info.

You cannot visit Brugge and don't catch the boat for a ride through the canals. You will not see much more than you can see walking, but the feeling is great (even if the boat is a motorboat). The boat is a bit crowded but its ok. There is a guide as well who talks about the history of the... More

This is a canal of a different sort, one that takes you to a destination, the city of Damme. About a 40 minute ride leaving every other hour from one city to the next. Operation is from April 1 to September 30, but get very good directions if you are walking or take a taxi or bus. Walking, we got... More

This was the best €8 spent during our entire visit, Brugge is a fairly expensive city and this was an absolute bargain. A simple but informative tour was given in 3 different languages which is was very impressive. Learnt a lot about the city and the sights were lovely from the boat but it was very cold as it is...

I would recommend everyone does this when "In Bruges". It gives a totally different view of all the sites, and all within a short timescale. We found it interesting and beautiful at the same time.

We were originally going to do a Horse & Carriage around Brugge but that worked out at around €40 minimum for 30mins (we were told you could haggle).. We stumbled across this Boat Tour and thought.. Why not! Our Captain was brilliant, he was very funny and informative. It was lovely to see Brugge via the Canal too. For €8,... More

Going on a canal boat tour has to be top of everyone's list in Bruges. It allows you to see the sights from a totally different perspective and you can appreciate how truly beautiful this city is. We chose this operator as it is a bit further away so it was a lot quieter. We didn't have to queue even... More

The scenery is beautiful, but take other service. The boat captain was rude, yelled all the time at us and you couldnt understand nothing he said of the site because his english was terrible. In the way out he fought with us because we were not silent. This yerk should be expelled fron anything related to tourism. He gives terrible... More
