Bruges Day Trip from Amsterdam

Amsterdam, Netherlands

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review

This is a terrible tour. I would not recommend it to anyone. I went on this tour with my Mom on 20 April 2014. There were nearly 50+++ people taken in a double decker bus to Bruges. During 3 hours there is no toilet stop so for my mother who is 71 years old, it was difficult because old people tend to have a greater need to use the toilet more frequently due to weaker kidneys. The bus ride was 3 hours to and from Bruges. It was an uncomfortable journey in the bus because the company used a very old bus with seats that could not recline in the slightest. The bus also seemed nit it have been cleaned frequently. The worst was that the air conditioning in the bus did not function properly leaving everyone seated inside a HOT HOT OVEN for 3 hours to Bruges and another 3 hours from Bruges back to Amsterdam. When the bus arrived in Bruges, the guided rushed us along to the Old Market area . There was a lack of consideration for safety of the entire group. A very old man from UK actually tripped on the cobbled stoned streets and fell face down onto the road injuring his hands and face. The guide rushed up and spent 5 mins ensuring he was ok. Then, the entire group was rushed on again towards the market square. Once we were in the market square, we were debriefed about meeting points and how to get back to the bus. Thereafter we were given 3 hours maximum to explore the town by ourselves. No guidance was given by the "guide" and neither were maps distributed. I had to go to the tourist office it get a map and navigate around the city by ourselves, while at the same time ensuring we don't venture too far out for fear of not being able to find our way back to the bus. Technically we had only 2.15 hours to look thru the city quickly. 1 hour was spent for lunch be 1 hour had to be spent in finding way back to the bus. All in all, a bad tour. For EUR70 per person, we paid for the poor bus ride as it was to a guided tour of Bruges. A train ride it Bruges would have cost less

My Review

This was an excellent tour. Group was small with only 6 of us so we had personalised service from our guide, Anna Reig. She is great and very personable with good English. She also had excellent knowledge of culture and history of the area. No rushing or time pressure at all. Very enjoyable tour!

My Review

I loved this tour. Such a delight to visit the amazing Dali museum and even more so to see his house in Port Lligat. My guide, Enrique was great and had an excellent command of English with thorough knowledge of art and history so he was perfect for this tour. Small group with only 6. Excellent!

My Review

Monserrat is beautiful. I loved the place but didn't enjoy the tour. The guide was overly talkative and could not stop yabbing during the 1.5 hour bus journey to Monserrat. She gave me a headache. There was too little time in Monserrat so I broke away from the group and stayed 4 more hours there.

Reasonable tour. Didn't have to take this tour to see Barcelona. However, my guide Anna Reig was great. After a long-haul 18 hour flight, this was the perfect way to see Barcelona on my 1st day in the city. Small group of 6 of us and no time pressures with personalised attention from the guide.
