I think it's safe to say Brugge was the highlight of our trip. It was unexpectedly quaint, charming, beautiful, medievel, welcoming and all around wonderful! You must try the local beer, the mussels, a Belgian waffle and of course the chocolate! Our guide, Marianne, was the best - I hope you get her! She speaks like 5 languages which was amazing to me and though the drive to Brugge from Amsterdam is 3 hours she gives you bits of information about the countryside as you are driving through so it definitely goes by fast. There is a walking tour to start in the town of Brugge which is very informative and then plenty of free time. We did not feel rushed as we did with some of the other tours. I would love to go back to Brugge!
Very beautiful city -- well worth the bus trip out and back. Our guide Marianne was very professional and did an excellent job!
Tremendous tour guid, Pedro. Bruges is beautiful beyond words. the ride was so pleasant, not long as far as I am concerned. Do it, it is GREAT!!!!
Wonderful trip. Just the right amount of commentary and free time.
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!
I highly recommend this tour, as Bruges is a very charming little town. A MUST SEE, if you want to spend a nice day outside Amsterdam!
Excellent Tour Gide and Professional Safe driver. A side excursion that is a must to see if visiting Amsterdam! We will repeat this trip next visit.
A lovely place indeed - the local tour guide was just awesome and super knowledgeable. : The tour guide on the bus was also very friendly and punctual.
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.
This was fantastic! Bruge was beautiful and this tour summed up all the charming sites we had hoped to see. Our guide was very knowledgable and fun.
Great tour, beautiful place! Marianne was a great tour guide, knew her stuff and gave lots of helpful tips!
Fantastic trip. Everything was perfect and just on time. Our guide Marianne was so friendly and gave us many interesting information. With her guidance the bus trip was never boring.
Great trip to Bruges led by an affable and informed guide! Now I want to go back and spend more time!
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.
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.
