What You Can Expect

Paris to Bruges Day Trip

Bruges, Belgium

Your drive to Belgium takes you through northern France to Bruges, not far from the North Sea in northern Belgium. Bruges is a simply exquisite town. The intact medieval centre of this Unesco World Heritage site looks like a living canvas painted by a Flemish old master.

Upon arrival in Bruges, your guided tour begins with a walk through the city's medieval heart. Highlights include the magnificent Grand Place, quaint houses with elaborately decorated facades, the Halles (an outdoor market with a belfry), the Place du Bourg with the Saint-Sang Basilica, the Gothic-style Town Hall and the Beguine Convent.

In summer (April to October) you'll then take a short cruise down Bruges' canals to see this lovely old city from the water. You'll have free time afterwards to pursue your own interests, perhaps visiting the museums of Flemish art or browsing for handmade lace and Belgian chocolates.

Day trip to Bruges was the highlight of our trip to Paris! An amazing place, so unique and interesting. Tour guide was great - nice balance of guided tour with information and free time to wander, exploring the city and buying some yummy chocolate. Canal boat trip was lots of fun and a nice bonus. Weather was perfect and the city was well worth the drive there and back. Great driver, relaxing trip. Awesome - highly recommended.

A must-do day tour from Paris. Bruges is a centuries old town with amazing buildings.Travel through the town on the canals,horse-drawn carts or simply walking.The food at all the various restaurants was of the highest quality. A great way to spend a day in France and Belgium.

Wonderful day in Bruges!! On the motorcoach to Bruges, the tour guide was very informative and interesting, but once there, you were transported back in time, such a charming city. Also, loved the free time to eat at one of the delicious restaurants in the square and to take a ride on the canal.
