Great 30min tour along the famous buildings in the city. For a cost of €8 it’s money well spend. You can take some really lovely photos from the boat. Highly recommended!

See Bruges from a different perspective, by taking a short but very informative river cruise. Again go early as the city become a mass of camera wielding selfie snappers. Well worth the money as the photo opportunities are beautiful.

Interesting way to see the city. A little history told by the driver in a number of languages. Might have been better if accent wasn’t as strong as it was hard to hear over the boat motor. All in all I would encourage floating on...More

For 8 euros this has to be one of the best value tours around the boatmen are really knowledgeable and extremely funny. They include every one on board the boat and speak many languages. Really good value.

We booked it at the dock about an hour before we wanted to go. We did this in March so there were no line at all. We did thoroughly enjoy this canal trip and hope you do to.
