Sunday day trip to Bruges. What should we do?

My wife and I are taking a day trip from Brussels to Bruges on Sunday July 24th. Is it possible to fit all this into one day? A boat tour of the city, climbing the bell tower, seeing the Church of the Holy Blood (since its Sunday can we still see the vial that contains the blood of Jesus), or the only Michelangelo statue in Belgium, if possible a tour the De Halve Maan brewery...

You can't see the so-called holy blood, the relic is only displayed on Fridays except in May. Church services take place in the basilica on Sundays at 08:00 and 11:00 hrs and I believe it closes at lunchtime but you can visit between 14:00 and 16:00 hrs. Look on brugge.be/internet/…3.

For the Michelangelo madonna, Onze Lieve VrouweKerk can be visited on Sundays between 13:30 and 16:50 hrs, see openchurches.be/church_detail.asp…

You can do everything else, Brugge is tiny. For De Halve Maan, tours are every half hour between (on Sunday) 11:00 and 16:00 hrs, see http://www.halvemaan.be/index.php?id=5&L=2

I would try and take the SEGWAY tour which I found far more informative and interesting than the boat tour. if you opt for the 2 hour tour you will have covered most of the town.
