    See the sights at your own pace and save money with a shuttle transfer service from the cruise terminal at Zeebrugge to the historic heart of Bruges. Avail of a quick transfer service that runs from the port to the city every 30 minutes in the morning and back to the port every 30 minutes in the afternoon. Take the worry out of your transportation needs during a cruise stopover in the pretty city of Bruges. Simply take the free port shuttle service to the gate, and then walk down to the bus departure point for embarkation. Get dropped off just a few minutes walk from the historic city center of Bruges.

    We had arrived at Zeebrugge on P&O Arcadia and the cruise company only arranged a shuttle bus to the port gates or the the town near to Zeebrugge (not Bruges) The friendly staff for the bus company arranged thru Get Your Guide were expecting us and gave us a map and detailed instructions of how the shuttle buses ran and where we would be taken in Bruges for the drop off/pick up. The driver wa svery friendly and the buses ran regularly and were well maintained. It was a shame that more people from the ship did not use the service (it ran both ways with only 6 or 7 passengers) and we know that P&O charged much more for their service to and from Bruges.

This was one of the best activities I did with my wife during our three day visit to Bruges. Pieter showed us a lesser known part of Bruges with great enthusiasm. He showed us many details in the city that we would not have noticed otherwise. Very nice to go through the city in a fast and easily manoeuvrable rickshaw. My wife especially enjoyed it. She had many questions that Pieter was able to answer well.

Be on time and you will see the most important things in Bruges in an hour. The guide was also neat and very polite And told everything about the special things of Bruges There was also plenty of room to ask questions yourself. In short, a successful ride

Booked a one hour tour. Very friendly guide who told us a lot about the city. It was not a standard story and he knew how to answer our questions. Highly recommended!

I would highly recommend to go with guide Stephanie and she is wonderful and explains you very well about the place.

Great service and guidance . Our guide was excellent
