I loved the guides and the City, the only thing that I would change is the amount of time we stay in Brugge. I think It was very little time (around 4:30h).

I attempted to sent my feedback on the 25th September 2016 following my return to Australia I was unable to send it as my score was very low and I think that the site is fixed so that it does not receive NEGATIVE feedback I was extremely disappointed with this tour. The group was far too big and I felt completely lost. We had stated that we have an English tour guide, what we got was an English speaking French lady who spoke with such a pronounced accent it was very difficult to understand her. Coupled with this there was a Spanish speaking guide or the same lady also speaking Spanish so it was hard to differentiate, and a Chinese guide and maybe other languages so we had to wait and listen through these other languages to get directions or hear about certain features of the tour. It was no wonder that we gave up and simply turned our equipment off as the foreign languages went on and on and we never knew when English was about to be spoken. After we alighted the tour guide proceeded to get on with the job of describing Bruge, when I commented that some of us may like a comfort stop before we actually started the walking tour, I was met with abrupt attitude as she "had already asked if anyone wanted to use the toilets" I either did not hear her, or could not understand her if she asked us, but when I made my comment there were several who used the toilets. We were herded like cattle through the town with our guide waving a furled umbrella, Bruge felt like a mile away, and it certainly was on the return. We were given boat tickets but could not use them when the weather was fine as "the tour had not finished!!!" yet we were given the tickets on the walk into the city, so instead of us being able to choose when to take the trip we were met with inclement weather in the afternoon and so it was not possible to do the boat tour as we were also told that we had to do it by 2 o'clock or it would be too late. This tour is certainly not recommended for older persons as the walking involved was too tedious especially on the return from the town as we were required to walk at a brisk pace to get back to the bus by a certain time. The designated stop on the return to Paris was disgusting. We were advised to get something to eat as the bus would not be getting into Paris until late (which we knew) as the doors of the shopping centre opened we were assailed by the odour of unclean toilets (this was evening time). I am not saying they were visibly dirty toilets, only that after the use during the day by possibly hundreds of persons, the odour was hot and heavy. We were also advised that we could not bring hot drinks or icecreams on the bus, so that left us with a choice of cold food and drinks. The air conditioner above my seat on the bus was not working correctly, the tour leader checked it and simply shrugged. I would love to see Bruge again - I personally think that the day tour is far too long to be able to say that we got any real sense of the place. By the time I went to one shop to which I had directions, had lunch and wandered about because we could not do the boat tour, the day had gone. We were required to meet at a certain spot to return to the coach, we could have visited a cathedral for example which was nearby, it appeared to be closed, but she later told us that there was a side entrance we could have used (if only we had known). I would never recommend this type of tour to anyone, and this has certainly cured me of ever undertaking a tour with so many persons and with a bi-lingual guide. This day tour is too crammed with over 8 hours travelling and is all about getting as many people on the coach as possible - to be able to enjoy the city of Bruge, people need to be able to get close to the town, rather than spend so much time walking to and fro. I would recommend that there be a shuttle bus from the city back to the coach park, the walk into the city is interesting but nothing was discussed on the return journey as we were required to walk quickly to be there at a certain time. I am sorry to have been so direct with my comments, but I did not enjoy the day and felt that we paid for something that we did not receive. I am a much seasoned traveller, travelling to many places on the globe including The Antarctic, Arctic, South America, Europe and USA. this experience was by far the worst for the four of us travelling as an adult family, and personally I would never recommend Trivago or the agent ever. Kind regards. Carol Titmus

Travel the beautiful and scenic Northern motorway toward Belgium — after a stop to stretch and rest, cross the border into historic Bruges, or Brugge, before noon. One of the most perfectly preserved medieval towns in Europe, Bruges is a remarkable and charming display of the life and times of the old Flemish masters.

Begin with a guided walking tour of the heart of the city. Unforgettable stops will include Brugge´s magnificent Grand Place with its quaint houses and decorated facades, the Halles covered market, the Place du Bourg and Saint Sang Basilica, the Gothic style Town Hall and the Beguinage Convent. Take full advantage of your free time with lunch, exploring and shopping for exquisite handmade lace or Belgian chocolates. A cruise on the city´s famous canals will delight (during the summer season only) before your return trip, arriving back in Paris at night.
