Great town and history. Booked a shuttle through Viator. Would not suggest this. We were there on a warm day and they overbook the shuttle. 30 minute + ride into town and no seats. Surprise that no one dropped due to the heat. Windows don't open. You are dropped off at the bus park and have to walk into the town. 20+ minute walk into the market square. I would suggest a cab for 50 euros. Great town - wish we had more time to do things though. With the long shuttle ride, it really cuts down on the short time you do have. Read Less

We took the Bruges at your own pace which was 4.5 hours long. This is ok if you've been to Bruges before. If you want to do more than shop you will need the longer excursion. It would also have been better if our coach had left on time instead of wasting 20 minutes waiting for people to turn up. Passengers are told what time the excursion leaves and if they are more than 5 minutes late the coach should go otherwise it affects everybody not just the selfish ones who can't be bothered to be on time.

We took the horse carriage ride from the Market Square, it costed us 50 Euros including tips but it was well worth it. The whole ride lasted about 30 mins and takes you along all the important places. Our carriage driver was nice and friendly and gave us commentary about various places as we went past them, only small complaint was that we couldn't always hear what she was saying due to the outside noise.
