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.

This was a very enjoyable and lovely day in Bruges. Our bus, guide, and sites were all worth it, although we were sprinkled on as we took the canal ride. Wish we had more time and hope to visit again.

This was a lovely day out. Our guide was friendly and gave us lots on information about Bruges but also many points of interest along the way. You get enough time in Bruge to do your own thing but the problem will always be that you can't see everything in 1 day. This is not a fault of the tour - there is simply too much too see in 1 day - this tour does everything it can to help you see and understand as much as possible in the time available.

What a fun trip. Great guides and well organized day. It was unfortunate it rained the 3 out of 4 hours we were in the town or Bruges! How disappointing. But one can not control the weather. Gave us an opportunity to see art galleries and museums. And yes, definitely have the mussels!

The city was beautiful i thought 4 hours of the city tour itself was not sufficient unfortunately.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

This day exceeded our already high expectations. Our tour guide, Joelle, was excellent - patient, informative, helpful, knowledgeable and a good cat-herder. The canal trip was simply amazing. The food, sights, beer, history and chocolate in this village are SO worth the trip.
