So glad I booked this trip before leaving home and it's the most memorable time of my life. Met the guide at the meeting spot in Amsterdam and we boarded the bus hassle-free and reached Brugges after 3 hours. Guide then took us around the main spots within the city for about 2 hours till the center market. Got 2.5hrs to explore on our own and used that time to buy souvenirs (chocolates). The entire place was so busy and bustling with tourists everywhere with gorgeous hot weather. We had about 2.5hrs of free time to explore on our own. For washrooms had to pay around 0.5 -1 euro. Be mindful of the tourist's rules and enjoy the old medieval views and north Venice vibes.

The trip was wonderful! The city of Bruges is a amazing city, a city like in a fairy tale !!! I was delighted to visit him! The guides were kind, friendly, I felt like family! Thousands of thanks to Alvaro, who was very nice to us, told us many funny stories about the city, showed us all the picturesque places, was warm as a dear relative. Thanks also to the driver who drove us safely, we quickly arrived in comfort and peace. I highly recommend making this trip!

Excellent guide with interesting historical information which makes the visit more interesting and fun One minus is transport which does not have restroom. May be it was one of case in our trip, but driver stopped in case of emergency. If your travelling with old parents make sure restrooms is available.

Great excursion, the guidance was very good and Bruges is an awesome place, Straight Out of Fairy Tales

Very comfortable and informative tour. The place is beautiful
