Our guide Regnier was the best.

Our guide Regnier was the best. Lace and chocolate for the ladies. A brewery tour for the bunch. Lunch at Cambrinus was excellent. A stunning little town.

Good host who took us just about everywhere and told us loads of things. It was just a bit too long at times and we really needed to sit down towards the end.

Walking tour of Brugge and chocolate making. The tour guide was great, and the chocolate making demo was fun and informative. The only issue was some of the PAX had walking difficulties, guess they didn't read the tour description. They kept falling behind and getting lost. This limited our time to do things on our own. At the end of the tour, I got off the bus and helped find some of the missing / late PAX. Read Less

this was likely the worst excursion we have ever had on a Viking Cruise. The city was again magnificent – albeit very cold, windy, but sunny. Our guide was simply – incompetent. I knew we were in trouble when he was reading and searching from his many pages of notes. He really didn’t convey much of anything. We would have been better to go into town on our own again. We spoke to others on the tour who had different buses and guides – they had such a good time – so again, luck of the draw. I sort of expect that with included tours, but was quite disappointed with having to pay $59 each for this one – as were others on our bus. Read Less

This was the worst tour I have ever been on for any cruise. The day was miserable, very cold and extremely windy. The guide walked us through Brugges at such a fast pace in the rain and wind. He almost never stopped. When we got to the magnificent town square, he whisked us away after 5 minutes. I got maybe 5 photos and then we ended up with an hour on our own at the end. We were by chocolate shops and a Subway. I was afraid to try to find my way back to the square as it was quite far and I don't have a good sense of direction. The guide was almost cruel. He made us move from under a tree when it was pouring to out in the rain, and many people did not have a rain coat or an umbrella. The canal ride was nice. Read Less

Lots and lots and lots of walking. If you are not used to it, don't take this excursion. Cobblestones are not easy walking and this one was many miles. Very interesting and lovely to see, just be prepared.

Another crowded bus with another long ride to another crowded venue. The guide did the best he could considering we spent a good portion of time waiting for others in the group to use the bathrooms. This simply confirmed in my mind that I will never take another large group shore excursion. It is better to save the money and go independently. Read Less

Our tour included a walk through the old city and a canal boat tour, and both were enjoyable and educational. Our guide was an amazing source of knowledge. There was an hour of free time that some used to shop for chocolate, lace, or souvenirs, but we used it to visit the Our Lady cathedral where there is a Michelangelo statue. Although the cathedral is under renovation, it was still worth seeing, and its museum has some good history exhibits. Read Less

Like all "official" excursion guides, our guide was very knowledgable. We got into the town very early—which turned out to be a good thing, since we had the wonderful medieval cobblestone streets to ourselves—as we were finishing, the crowds swelled to congestion and we were thankful for the peaceful early portion. If you're a history buff you've probably seen the movie, "The Monuments Men." A key Nazi-looted artifact was one of the few Michelangelo pieces outside Italy, the Bruges Madonna. Well, true to the story, it was returned (for the second time, apparently) and can be viewed in one of the central churches—which we did after the tour was over. We also picked up some Belgian chocolates, which have been a hit, back with my office team (though I say with even more Los Angeles pride, now, that our hometown Sees chocolates are even better).

Slightly marred by the poor weather, the area of walking was relatively small and we didn't get a great amount of time to walk around and explore. The boat ride was nice and relaxing and the speaker was very informative.

We took the "Brugge on your own" coach trip from the ship £35pp for convenience.Seems expensive for a 20/25 minute trip into town and back. You can do it cheaper by train or bus but its quicker and easier this way. Courier takes you into center of town and tells you what time to meet back. Nice little map provided. He gives a nice talk there and back. We left 8.30am and got back at 4pm in time for tea. QUe to get back on ship was HUGE and took about 30mins. Brugge is lovely lots to see, mice places to eat and have tea or a beer. We have been before so know our way around. Read Less
