Day Trip to Bruges with Guided Visit

I took a guided bus tour of Bruges from Paris. The trip was well-organized, with a rest-stop each way. The guide provided lots of background information about the North of France, Belgium, and Bruges on our way there. Once in Bruges there was a one-hour walking tour, again with much information provided. There was then ample free time to explore, shop, eat, and even take a boat on the canal. I absolutely loved the day, and would highly recommend it.

We had a wonderful time in Bruges. Is a very beautiful and magical place. The tribe was comfortable and allowed for a little napping pre and post trip. Bruges is full of amazing history and very tasty food. I highly recommend the Belgium waffles as we had 2 during our short stay. There are more shops and you can even imagine. It is a picturesque town.

if getting off the bus; taking off running and having the same tour guide translating into 3 languages is for you... this is the tour to take ....not to mention the map provided will direct you to the wrong pick up location.Bruge is beautiful and interesting....Flemish stew delicious...bus seats rather tight and comfortable...but the mid-evil town is worth it!

I wish I remembered our guide's name because she was very good. It's a long bus ride each way, but the time went surprisingly fast. I wish the wifi had worked all of the time. It didn't. I had seen Bruges before. My companion had not. She thought it was well worth spending an entire day taking this tour. Bruges is pretty darn special.

Nice but very short

Bruges is a very nice town but all the trip wasn’t worth it. First the trip with the bus is very long one, second the guide who speak 3 language in the same time get you confused in the end of the Day, third when you arrive to Bruges you have 4 hours to eat, visit wait for the boat river cruise and if you are lucky visit museum !!! So in the end too long not worth it.

Bruges is a lovely city worth a visit but makes for a very long day trip from Paris. More than 8 hours on the bus and only about 4 hours total time to enjoy the town. Guides and bus drivers were great but I would like to see an hour of time added at the end to have more time to take on all the sites, shopping and food. Waffles dipped in chocolate were amazing!
