This is an excellent way to see Bruges from just outside the port of Zeebruges. Cheaper than the cruise ships transfer. Just use free port shuttle to entrance of port and the buses are parked around 50m to the right. Run every half hour, I think on the hour and half past and takes approx 25 minutes. A little walk into town through a park but that's OK. The service is very good. Our trip date to the port was changed due to adverse weather conditions but the company honoured our new arrival date a few days later.

This was very easy and went like clockwork. You take the shuttle out to the gate and then it's a short walk to get on the bus. The cruise line will try to worry you a bit about traffic and potentially being late back to the ship to encourage you to use their excursion/shuttle, but this was less than half the price and worked great and got us back to the ship in plenty of time.

A great alternative to the Free time in Bruges tours from the cruise ship at about 1/2 the price and far more flexibility. Just take the free Port shuttle bus from your Cruise Ship to the main entrance to Zeebrugge Port. From the port gates, turn right and walk about 100 meters down the road. There is a van parked there which is the ticket office for the shuttle. They run every 30 mins and take about 30 mins to get to Bruges from Zeebrugge. Very helpful staff, they give check your ship departure time and give you all the times the bus will return from Bruges. This gives you more flexibility for your time in Bruges compared to the Cruise Ship tours which only have one departure and one return time. They also give you a map which shows where the bus will drop/collect you, which is basically the same place were the Cruise ship tour buses drop you as well. It a lovey walk into Bruges from bus terminal through a lovey park and past some beautiful churches and you are some into the main central square. Bruges is a lovely city and well worth visiting.

Booked the shuttle a few weeks prior to arriving in Zeebrugge, quick and easy on line booking system a lot cheaper than the cruise lines transfer. After taking the red port shuttle to the main gate the bus was just a short walk from the port main gate, staff were very friendly and tickets were waiting to be collected, a good quality map was also given to us prior to boarding the bus. The buses travel on the hour and every half hour which gives you freedom in Bruges knowing that a transfer will be available when required. An excellent service was provided, I will most definitely be using again on our next trip. Highly recommended.

A very good service at a reasonable price. Due to weather conditions our cruise ship docked at Zeebrugge on a different day than was originally planned but I had no problem using my voucher. I would use this service again.
