This is the best part of our Paris family tour. The trip took us to a relaxing ambience after a few days of crowded Paris strolls. The medieval architecture, friendly Belgians and awesome food make this memorable. Don't miss the waffles, chocolates and beer!
The bus driver was extremely accommodating. Three people were to be picked up at a hotel and one over-slept. The bus driver went to make another pick up and by the time he returned the missing passenger was downstairs and ready to board.
Bruges is a quaint, picturesque, medieval village like any of the gorgeous pictures you see online only nothing can compare to seeing it firsthand. The guide from viator was good, although it wasn't really the type of place requiring a walking guided tour.
I strongly recommend paying the few extra euros (or dollars) for the hotel pick up since it is very early. I highly recommend this Viator trip.
Amazing! Wonderful day in beautiful Brugge. Comfortable coach. Value for money. Highly recommend this tour.
Great experience traveling to Bruges Belgium. The city was like a time capsule jewel!
Highly recommend this trip if you only have one day to devote to Bruge. Check in was easy, although crowded, it went smoothly. We then had to walk a distance to a parking garage to board the bus. If you have any difficulty walking you should choose option to be picked up at hotel by bus.
Bruge was a beautiful day trip from Paris. The guide was very nice and allowed for a plenty of private sightseeing. While Bruge is small, the map provided wasn't very helpful. We attempted to get to the bus parking by ourselves, but found the map to be confusing. One other thing, in the morning, a representative from the tour company led our group from the meeting point to the bus. It was quite a walk and the guide was walking very fast and I noticed some of the older clients having a hard time keeping up. I'm sure she makes this walk several times a week, but she should be more aware of the needs of her clients.
A must-do and a must-see!! Brugge is a lovely medieval town to walk through and experience the sights, the food and the people. Try the Flemish Beef Stew..the local beers..and sample the chocolate. Elisabeth from the tour was very nice and did a really informative discussion of the history of the town. I've been telling friends about this day trip..highly recommended!!
Beautiful - Well Worth the Trip!! I wish the tour would have allowed for more time actually in Bruges. We had some minor traffic and mechanical problems on the bus so our scheduled 4 hours in Bruges was cut down to 3 1/2. Wish it were more like 5 hours at least to see everything important.
THIS TOUR WAS BEAUTIFUL AND mazing! VERY RELAXING, INFORMATIVE, AND FUN! WELL WORTH THE MONEY! DONT DEPRIVE YOURSELF OF THIS TOUR!
I am still working with Viator on this tour. I did confirm prior to, had problems with wifi. When I called Cityrama they did not want to cooperate at all with my suggestion of booking on the next available date, which was the next Friday...they had availability, but said they could not use MY ORIGINAL VOUCHERS, AND THAT I HAD TO PURCHASE A NEW TOUR, WHICH I DID NOT. They made me missed a precious trip just because they did not feel like cooperating with Me and Viator...Buyers be aware, very aware...
Bruges is absolutely beautiful with its Flemish architecture and the quaint canals that traverse the historical part of the town. It was a pity that at the time of our trip that renovations were being made of the clock tower and we weren't able to enter. However the streets and the plaza were just amazing. Although it was a long day, it was so worthwhile.
Do-able on your own but a great tour to just sit back and enjoy! It is a great way to expand a Paris stay.
Amazing introduction to Brugge. Not enough time to see it all but that is expected on a day trip. Made me want to return though!!
Timely hotel pick-up after needing to telephone confirm time; long walk from Bus Office to Garage; three languages in bus trip was tiring, but guides were excellent; Bruges tour guide by guide was excellent; good free-time in Bruges; should have received free city-map from someone; good rest-stop selection in 3hr one way trip; long day; well worth effort
Brilliant, what more can I say absolutely loved Brugge and would definitely go there to stay
The side trip to Bruges was incredible. The town is beautiful--the architecture, the canal, the shopping, restaurants--it was a perfect getaway from Paris for a day. I highly recommend visiting Bruges.
This was an amazing day (helped by the fact that the weather was a perfect Autumn day). The trip in the Bus is long (close to 4 hrs each way including a 30 min stop at a roadhouse) but the tour guides are informative and the scenery is interesting. Bruges itself is picture perfect. We had 5 hours in Bruges with a guided walking tour then free time including a canal boat ride (that was great in itself). Shopping for Christmas decorations, Belgian chocolate, lace and embroidery kept everyone entertained. Highly recommended.
Our tour guide was amazing. Our walking tour was so pleasant as we had time to take in the sights by taking pictures while she was explaining the history of the town. Our river cruise furthered our knowledge of Bruges. It is such a historical town with so many beautiful shops and cafes and wonderful beer!
ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS DAY. COACH EXCELLENT, STOPS EACH WAY WELLTIMEDAND AT GOOD PLACES. BRUGES WAS EVERY BIT AS GOOD AS WE EXPECTED. WELL PLANNED DAY MADE IT A GTREAT EXPERIENCE.
Although the drive from Paris to Brugges is about 4 hours, the drive is well worth the trip. The guide was wonderful. Her enthusiasm and knowledge of not just Brugges but the surrounding area made this trip extremely enjoyable. Brugges itself is beautiful. The guided tour was well run and there was adequate time to tour the city on one's own.
