The tours are given in English/French/German based on the language needs of the group. You're packed in pretty tightly, but everyone has a good view. It's a really good way to get a perspective of the city - the Venice of the North. Wear sunscreen...More

They don't take prebookings as far as I know. It's a question of buying a ticket (cash only) and queuing. There are a number of pick up points around Bruges. Google Bootochten Brugge for more info.
