I really enjoyed this day trip to Bruges. Marianne's walking tour upon arrival was very useful for orientating ourselves/ finding the main sights and useful tips on which chocolate shops and waffles were best! I would recommend taking this tour and while you are there climb the Belfry, take a canal tour, buy a Belgian chocolate waffles and stock up on chocolates in Galler's
Unfortunately due to an unexpected problem (not the fault of Viator) we were not able to go on this trip.
We were of course very disappointed but can say the booking process and trip reminders from viator were very good. If we are in a position to book a trip through Viator we would not hesitate. That said we cannot comment on the trip itself.

One of the most picturesque places i have ever been to. Higly recommended and definitely going there again with the first chance. The only drawback of the tour is the limited amount of time we had to explore the city (about 3 hours excluding the 1 our city tour from our guide).
Great trip to a beautiful City. Friendly and helpful tour guide with good suggestions on what to do. Sadly the time to explore the Markt Square quickly evaporated and more time would have been appreciated but overall the trip was excellent and well worth the money!
A awesome time Monique was wonderful a great tour guide the city is beautiful the bus is brand-new everything was perfect I would highly recommend this trip
Great tour, Burge is a great little town that I would not think to go visit. The bus ride was quick, the tour guide knowledgable and free chocolate taste. The restaurant they choose a little to pricey but you did not have to stay and eat there.
Fantastic. The tour guide was impeccable. She was very knowledgeable and went out of her way to ensure that everyone had a lovely trip. The only recommendation is that the tour leaves a little earlier in the day to allow more time in Bruges as the time there did feel rushed.
A long day from Amstemrdam but worth seeing. Our guide was excellent advising not to get lost but we still lost our way back to the bus. Bruges is a wonderful place to visit and we consumed the mussels and Trapist Monk beer as part of the local experience too.
Wonderful tour! Bruges is beautiful, and it's a good amount of time to see the highlights. The coach ride sounded long but went by very fast, with the beautiful countryside and bc our guide narrated about Dutch and Belgian history on the way there. We had a wonderful guide, Pedro, who was helpful, accommodating, informative, and knowledgeable. It was a great way to spend the day!
This was a fabulous tour! The three hour drive from Amsterdam was a bit boring once we past the windmills, but it was absolutely worth the drive! I was so surprised at how beautiful and amazing Bruges was. What a gem of a city! It's a charming medieval town with the best tea houses, french fries, and chocolate. If you are looking for a quick, convenient day-trip to outside of Amsterdam, this is the trip for you!
Excellent trip. The coordination and amount of time in Bruges was just right.
Excellent trip. Maryanna was wonderful. She gave us a history as we drove out to Bruges, pointing out interesting sites as we made our way to the city. When we arrive in Bruges she took us on a short walking tour again pointing out sites of interest and providing little tips. The bus picked up on time and we arrived back in Amsterdam as promised. If you can only do a day trip to Bruges this is the best.
Great tour recommended , plenty of time for sight seeing in this pretty city
Our guide was fantastic...explained a lot and gave us maps, and pointed us in the direction of different
things we wanted to see....all in all, it was a great experience. He said everything in two languages which helped the folks who spoke Spanish.
It was a wonderful trip! Our tour guide and bus driver were great and Bruges is lovely.
Great place to visit, but be prepared for three hour bus trip each way for five hours in the town.
My husband and I originally didn't know if we wanted to spend 6 hours round trip on a bus to go to Bruges but we had a free day in Amsterdam we are so glad we did. Bruges is an amazing medieval city. It was like stepping back centuries in time. We went to two churches, one held the blood of Christ. We toured the town and had lunch at a lovely restaurant. Had some Belgium beer and waffles from street vendors. Also ate plenty of Belgium chocolates. It was a fantastic day . The tour guide talked all the way from Amsterdam to Bruges. First in English then repeating in Spanish. She gave us very interesting facts about Amsterdam and Belgium that I was interested to learn. On the way back she was quiet so everyone could just rest and relax after a long day. The trip was well worth the visit to Bruges and I would highly recommend it. The only negative thing I could say is that there were 4 children about 8 to 10 years old at the front of the bus who were playing and yelling and extremely loud and the parents did nothing to ask them to be a little quiet. I have kids and love to be around children but being closed up in a bus for three hours it made the return ride back to Amsterdam a bit unpleasant. At one point when the tour guide was trying to say something she had to ask the kids to be quiet and listen.
Maryann was a great guide. Enjoyed Bruges very much. Had hoped we would have more time to explore the city. Overall I would recommend the trip.
This is a great tour. We loved Bruges. We needed more time there. Our only complaint is that we left a cell phone on the bus. Called and email the local tour company to try to retrieve it, but they were not especially helpful. Finally talked to the person in charge of the buses. He was helpful, but we never found the phone. Which is odd, were the last of the bus, noticed it right away and tried to call.
The trip to Bruges was well worth the long drive from Amsterdam. The tour guide and driver were great.
