Turned out to be a perfect way to give my grandson a taste of Bruges. Our guides were knowledgeable and the city is, of course, beautiful.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

What a wonderful place Bruges is. The bus trip from Amsterdam was a good opportunity to see some of the scenic countryside of The Netherlands and Belgium. Our tour around Bruges when we first arrived gave us a taste of what we could go back and visit later in the afternoon. So many interesting shops, churches, canals and cobblestone streets to explore.I just wish I had more time there!

Pedro provided an excellent tour. The bus was very comfortable. Bruges is an amazing city and well worth the time spent away from Amsterdam. You get a good history during the walking tour. But only about 3 hours to be on your own.

We booked this as a last minute trip despite it being a 3 hour bus journey from Amsterdam. The actual journey was fairly boring as it was flat and we mainly stuck to the highway however once we arrived in Brugge it was so quaint you could not help but fall in love with the town. Our guide was informative but for me too long winded and having to listen first in English and then Spanish it just was too much noise for me. I think she could have just made the salient point without going into too much detail. We did the horse drawn cart which was wonderful and then the normal shopping for Chocolates, Frittes and Marzipan. I would recommend this trip.

Bruges was incredible! A beautiful fairy tale town and I am so happy that I took the time to visit. It was a long bus ride but definitely worth it.
