  • We very much enjoyed the boat tour. As others have said, it's a touristy thing to do, but you get great views of Brugges this way. Be aware that the hours currently listed on Google are incorrect. They do not open at 9 and seemed a little irritated when we showed up around 9:15 trying to find the departure point. You can buy a ticket a little before 10, which is when they start the tours.
  • Definitely a tourist thing to do, and pricey at €12/pp. but worth it as you get some great views. The tour guide drives the boat, but the tour itself is an audio clip in multiple languages, which is nice so everyone can understand. The part I didn’t care for was at the end when it states in the audio that, “tipping your guide is customary”. With already paying a ticket fee for the journey, and an audio clip, I do not see how this is relevant or warranted, as there was nothing ‘special or beyond’.
