Brugge is spectacular! Excited to see Madonna and Child - Stunning!! Not satisfied with guide- Battery in her unit failed - She then had to speak without microphone- Not able to understand any information in this method

Great day trip! Bruges was absolutely beautiful. Our guide was awesome, very informative, great stories, tips, funny, personable and helpful. Super day, beautiful sights, good beer, yummy chocolate!

The tour is awesome. It is a long ride but its perfect to go visit Brugge while in Amsterdam. Our guide was Astrik and she was amazing, very knowledgeable and kind.

Carlos and Jose were amazing. A great time and a great experience. Highly recommend!

The progress was a little quick but overall for the time it was good
