    The guide was wonderful, shared with us lots of history about the Netherlands and Bruge. Just wish the tour left Amsterdam earlier as there’s a lot to see and do in Bruge. Bus was comfortable for long drive.

    Everything went well. Mary An, the tour guide, and Heidi, the driver, really went out of their way to attend to our every need. Very efficient and systematic.

    We really enjoyed this trip to Bruges. Bruges is a stunning place to visit. It is a must! We also got a free canal cruise when we purchased the tickets which was a bonus.

    This is one of those day trips you shouldn’t miss. Marian was an excellent guide, she gave clear instructions and we got to know a good history of Bruges considering it was only a day trip

    We felt rushed , not enough time in the city by ourself. By the time you finish having lunch , you already need to go . The walk to the busses is too far . The walking tour goes way too long and the walk is too fast

    Bruges is amazing and I highly recommend going. But there were a few issues with the tour. Once in Bruges, the walking tour was in English. But, on the way, in the bus, they spoke Spanish. The maps given out were in Spanish. I think we missed a lot. I clearly booked an English speaking tour, but it wasn’t all in English. Secondly, traffic to Bruges was awful. We spent 4 hours in the bus (each way!) and 4 hours in Bruges. So twice as long in the bus as in the city itself! There has got to be an easier way to get there. I recommend looking into a train or boat ride. The bus was painful! We did not get back until almost 9 pm.

    El viaje estuvo increíble! La salida y el regreso puntual. Brujas es precioso y vale la pena visitar. Nuestro guía, Pablo, fue extremadamente atento y nos dio muchísimos datos interesantes durante el recorrido. Gracias a él, y al bello lugar, disfrutamos en grande y volveríamos sin duda con Buendía Tours.

    Estupenda excursión, incluso si viajas con peques! El viaje a Brujas merece la pena, si tienes unos días por Amsterdam. Miguel, el guía, aporta bastantes datos históricos, así como anécdotas de interés y sugerencias muy acertadas sobre dónde almorzar o comprar chocolates, tanto en Brujas como en Amsterdam. Valoro positivamente su simpatía, disponibilidad y atención. Viajé con mi hija de 6 años y es apta para peques. Gracias
