What You Can Expect

Bruges Day Trip from Amsterdam

Bruges, Belgium

Meet your group in central Amsterdam and board your comfortable coach bus for this Burges Day Trip from Amsterdam. Relax for a three-and-a-half-hour journey through the countryside as you make your way to Bruges, one of Belgium’s most idyllic destinations.

Your expert guide will offer highlights, information and a general city overview before setting you loose to explore the quaint streets, lace shops and chocolate stores of Bruges. You’ll have five hours to explore destinations like the Begijnhof—a collection of white houses that was once home to widowed women and today is run by Benedictine nuns. See a vial of Christ’s blood at Heilig-Bloedbasiliek and admire the architecture of Markt and Burg squares. You’ll have time to see locals demonstrate the age-old tradition of lace making or take a cruise along the canals. When your time in Bruges comes to an end, you’ll return to Amsterdam aboard your coach.

I loved this tour. Although 5 hours in the city sounds a long time it certainly is not too much. This is a beautiful mediaval city with great buildings and streets to explore. Although I was there on a Sunday, shops were open offering beautiful lace, chocolates, souvenirs and coffee.

I had the best tour guide Margaret and bus driver John. I enjoyed the historical information given during the bus ride to Bruges. The time given to explore such a wonderful city was filled with historical architecture and fantastic food! The city is beautiful to explore.

The trip was an overall scintillating experience. After a beautiful bus journey along with other travellers from around the world, we reached Bruges. What followed was a guided city tour for around 45 minutes and after that 3-4 hours of free time. During this time, there are enough number of shops especially during festive season to keep one entertained. Further there are sightseeing spots as well as canal cruises for one to indulge in. I would highly recommend this day trip to any traveller!

Great tour! We loved that it was mostly self-guided, but Maryanne the tour guide made sure to show us some popular spots before setting us free to explore. Definitely try a waffle from a food truck!

Really enjoyed our tour guide she was knowledgeable, friendly, and provided clear directions regarding meeting times as well as local recommendations. The driver was a pro he got us down and back through rain, snow, and traffic. I just wish we had had more time in Bruges it is a lovely village with so much to see!
