Had an amazing time. Highlight of the trip was the 30-min. boat ride on the canal. It really was a unique experience. There are lots of stores to purchase chocolates, lace, souvenirs, candy, waffles, etc. The ride from Paris is about 4 hours but we stopped midway at the rest stop for restrooms and food. I definitely recommend this tour! It was a lot of fun.
Although a long day a must see destination. Probably the highlight of our six week European tour.
Very knowledgeable tour guide, nice bus ride, and a wonderful day even tho it was a little long. Would recommend it to anyone.
Very good trip. The group was a bit large, but the guide did an excellent job. (You should emphasize the need for a passport. I had to run back to my hotel to get mine.) Overall, a very good trip.
The driver came and picked us up at our hotel in the 5th arrondissment in Paris and took us to the bus. We boarded and enjoyed a leisurely drive through the French countryside with our guide providing interesting tidbits along the way. We then walked to the center of town - stopping to take pictures and learn more about the history of Bruges. The boat trip around the city was especially lovely. We were returned to the door of the hotel later that night. I would recommend this tour to everyone. I'm still enjoying my last pieces of Belgium chocolate - wish I could have brought back some beer.

Wonderful day out! Comfortable coach (no toilets on board though). Half hour stop gave time for toilet and food break. Trip went faster than expected. Plenty of time to wander, eat lunch and do boat ride which was fantastic. Only negative was it ended up being a bi-lingual tour with 2 guides. I just find that by the time one guide as spoken about passing sites and 2nd guide speaks, we are long past what they are talking about. Minor issue though. Would recommend this tour. Someone else told me about this tour and I'm so glad they did!
Would recommend this tour. The guide was very knowledgeable and made the trip very comfortable and pleasant. The only wish I had was to give us more time, perhaps another 2 hours. At least to browse and walk around more. My family and I were thinking of a sitdown meal in one of the restaurants to try their delicacy but time was of the essence instead we just got a quick lunch in one of the food carts and kept on going. Overall I would give this a 5 star for a very well organized and comfortable trip.
It was a most enjoyable day. The coach was great, the tour guides were professional, informative and helpful. The day was well planned and I learnt a lot about Bruges that other people don't know. I am glad I chose this way to visit Bruges. The organisation dealt with a booking mistake that I made and resolved it in a most satisfactory way. I'd recommend this tour.
Enjoyed this relaxing day trip to see beautiful Bruges - well recommended.
The trip was very organized.The guides were very knowledgeable and kind.We had good time .It is a very pretty place.
This was a fabulous trip. I would go again in a heartbeat. The city is beautiful and the food is amazing. I bought chocolate and lace and had beer with our flemish stew. I was disapointed to go in November when there was no cannal ride. That would have been truely wonderful. I was a lone female traveler and at no time feld uncomfortable or unsafe. This was a wonderful tour and I would do it again in a heartbeat.
Bruges is delightful, and magical. It is just like a postcard of a fairytale. We visited in winter and the day was cold ! The Christmas decorations and markets were up and active. We thought the time was perfect for our visit. The guides were interesting spoke a few different languages, and there was free time after the initial tour to do your own thing and acquaint yourself with Bruges and all it has to offer. There are some lovely little shops browse these and many of the same big shops you see everywhere (leave these for another day). The chocolates and lace are divine and that is just the displays !
The bus ride is long and there was no bathroom on board the bus but it does make a refreshment stop both ways. Ensure you take your passport - unlike me who then had to jump in a cab and do a round trip quick smart to retrieve it ! - totally unnecessary as the bus was not stopped and we didn't need it but better safe than sorry I guess. Absolutely worth the long, long day !
