Owner description: Everyone, who visites Bruges, the Venice of the North, is sure to make a boat-trip on its famous canals. Our embarcation point is situated in the heart of these beautiful surroundings. Boat-trips take about 30 minutes and you will see beautifull places that you can only see by boat. We run 7 days a week from march till the end of october from 10 till 5 o’clock

Bruges has a charming canal system that you can tour by boat. The boat tour was very short, but gave you a different view of what the city has to offer.

Seeing Bruges from water level is a treat! Sure, you'll walk the town - and you should - but you'll see canal-side homes, buildings, and swans-a-swimming from the canal boat. The guide kept us in stitches with his dry - and informative - wit. Hopefully, you'll have "fine" weather because this town is really beautiful ("quaint" is a better term). The 15e you'll spend is well worth it.

I think we chose the wrong time of day as it was very busy. Boat was crowded and you could hardly hear the guide. The route is a semi circular one so you tend to double back. Better to go early or later in the day

A very pleasant 35 minute journey up and down the canals. Despite light rain part of the trip the views and water perspective of the city were enjoyable. The only thing that was a bit frustration was they tried to stuff as many people in a boat as possible because there was a line of people waiting. We were really crunched together which took away from the overall enjoyment. There are numerous boat docks so pick one with shorter lines and you will go out without a fully loaded boat and yourself much more.

I liked it better than Venice, also the water was cleaner. There are many canals or waterways going all through Bruges. There are many tour boats that will take you on a nice waterway trip.
