Full description
Climb aboard an air-conditioned coach for a full-day tour of Bruges in the West Flanders region of Belgium, and discover the Belgian capital of chocolate and canals, with plenty of free time to amble.

Depart Amsterdam in the morning and drive across the Dutch border. Upon arrival in Bruges, admire scenic streets and the canals that gave Bruges its nickname, "The Venice of the North."

Although the trip was long, we didn't get bored or tired as the bus was comfortable, the driver was very professional and Marion kept us good company with useful information with the right voice tone and quantity of information. The guided tour in the town of Brugge was lovely and allowed us to spend enough time for lunch or enjoying the scenery and the sights on our own. One comment for improvement is the return to the bus: it was dark very different from the tour during the day and one could get easily lost. We should have been shared mobile phone numbers with the guide or the driver just in case we needed help.

Excellent day trip from Amsterdam. The guide, Alejandro, was knowledgeable and friendly. Bruges is a wonderful city to visit - full of history and beautiful architecture. There are many shops that sell souvenirs, chocolate, and beer. There are also many restaurants that traditional Belgian dishes, such as Flemish beef stew and rabbit. There is quite a bit of walking involved, but it is over mostly flat ground. Being a older city, there is cobblestone and other types of uneven pavement. The bus was modern and comfortable, so the 3 hour trip to Bruges was fine - with a lot of interesting things to see on the way.

Definitely worth this trip!

The trip was nice and the guide shared with us a lot of information! Still, it would have been nice to have told us the hours when the places to visit would have closed. Don’t miss visiting the church having inside the Michelangelo statue or to see the Jesus blood in other church. It worth to see as well the Tower! I missed them as I didn’t know the closing time... but I loved testing the chocolate and of course, buy it :) I also enjoyed very much a cruise in Bruges -which definitely worth!
