I would recommend everyone does this when "In Bruges". It gives a totally different view of all the sites, and all within a short timescale. We found it interesting and beautiful at the same time.

We were originally going to do a Horse & Carriage around Brugge but that worked out at around €40 minimum for 30mins (we were told you could haggle).. We stumbled across this Boat Tour and thought.. Why not! Our Captain was brilliant, he was very funny and informative. It was lovely to see Brugge via the Canal too. For €8,... More

Going on a canal boat tour has to be top of everyone's list in Bruges. It allows you to see the sights from a totally different perspective and you can appreciate how truly beautiful this city is. We chose this operator as it is a bit further away so it was a lot quieter. We didn't have to queue even... More

The scenery is beautiful, but take other service. The boat captain was rude, yelled all the time at us and you couldnt understand nothing he said of the site because his english was terrible. In the way out he fought with us because we were not silent. This yerk should be expelled fron anything related to tourism. He gives terrible... More

You won't see anything or learn anything that you won't see just walking around Brugge... Save your money for beer or chocolat!

Long waiting lines, overfilled boats, No way to take a descent picture, limited information given by the driver. And takes only 30 min, they race you around at too high speeds to be able to appreciate the experience.

€8 per person for 30 minutes, very clearly stated on the ticket booths and that's exactly what you get. Some good commentary though was a bit quiet and fragmented. Nice views of Bruges from a different angle but go early as it gets busy.

We wandered around the town deciding which boat to jump on. Luckily for us we picked this one and the captain was most entertaining (if you like British old fashioned humour. He took his time pointing out some of the fantastic architecture. Some of the other boats thought they were in a race. Look out for this one.

Boottochten Brugge boat ride is a very nice. Boat ride was about 45 minutes and gone through most of the canals near the city center. They put lots of people in a boat so you can't expect any personal space, but ride is totally worth it.
