What You Can Expect

Paris to Bruges Day Trip

Bruges, Belgium

Board a coach in Paris for the scenic drive into Belgium through the northern part of France. Bruges sits in northern Belgium, near the North Sea, in the region known as Flanders.

Despite the history of war in this area, the Medieval center of Bruges is amazingly well-preserved – so much so that the historic center is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Your visit to Bruges begins with a guided walking tour of the charming Medieval center, including ornately-decorated buildings, the Saint-Sang Basilica on Place du Bourg, the Beguine Convent, the Gothic City Hall and the 12th-century Markt Square with its iconic bell tower.

After the walking tour, take a brief canal cruise (for summer visits, from April to October) to see this charming city from the water, followed by free time to explore Bruges on your own. (Visitors during the rest of the year go straight from the walking tour to leisure time in Bruges.) Take advantage of your free time to see Flemish art museums, shops selling handmade lace or enticing Belgian chocolate shops.

Worth the long bus ride to Bruges. The tour guide was amazing. I learned a lot from her and she made the whole trip and the city tour very interesting.

Our family of six, ages 10-16, thoroughly enjoyed this tour. The travel is a little long but it is broken up with a 30 min 'stretch your legs and grab a snack' break each way. The guides were very helpful and knowledgeable. The canal tour was pleasant and Bruges is a very quaint, delightful town. We wanted to spend a little more time there but it was a long day of travel.

Long bus rides from and to Paris but well worth it. An excellent guide who shared many wonderful things with us. The boat ride on the canals was fantastic. A long climb up the clock tower but the view to the port and beyond was worth every step.

What a beautiful place, unfortunately for us it poured with rain all day, that's nature though, but we still walked around, went on a canal boat ride and got absolutely drenched, this is a place a would love to go back and spend more time in. Despite the rain I could see the beauty of Bruge.

We loved Bruges and enjoyed the tour. Maybe not quite enough time on our own, but you can only do so much in a partial day.
