Excellent tour. I really enjoyed having 5 hours of free time to wander the city. The guide was excellent, and the bus driver went out of his way to help us avoid a huge traffic jam on the motorway on the way back to Amsterdam. We got back a little late, but he still saved us at least an hour. One of the best tours I have ever been on.

First of all, Marianne? was WONDERFUL. She was a wealth of information, very helpful, very funny, and kind. You can tell she really enjoys her job. The trip there and back was very smooth, and the city of Bruges is beautiful. There is a lot to do--eat--there, and so much to see. I recommend a canal tour 8E and getting a late lunch/early dinner of mussels I got garlic and split them with another traveler as they were about 24E. I am not a particularly fishy person, but holy cow these are good mussels. Definitely a must try. I was so full, I didn't eat the rest of the day! This trip is definitely worth the 80E.
