About The Bruges Tour:
Whereas Amsterdam exudes the splendour of the Dutch Golden Age, Bruges is a canal city renowned for its UNESCO-listed medieval centre. The remarkably intact nature of the place likely stems from its virtual stasis during the same period, something which you could say has turned out to be a bit of a blessing in disguise.
Set out on your luxury coach from central Amsterdam and see if you agree. Bruges boasts the second highest brickwork tower in the world (Church of Our Lady), a museum dedicated to chocolate, and storybook cobbled streets that practically invite wistful wanderings. The day tour includes a English-language guided walking tour.

The Bruges full-day tour from Amsterdam begins at the Tours & Tickets office in the IJ hall at the east side of Centraal Station (De Ruijterkade 34a). Here you'll be checked-in before meeting your tour guide and fellow travellers.
Departing by luxury coach the tour proceeds directly onto Bruges city centre via Holland's colourful countryside. Upon arrival you'll be treated to a guided walking tour of the historical streets and landmarks. By the turn of the afternoon this first portion will have ended, allowing you free time to spend the rest of the day as you wish.
Take a boat ride along the city canals, enjoy Christmas stalls in The Markt if it's winter, and explore magnificent old buildings such as Basilica of the Holy Blood. As well as a variety of popular art galleries Bruges is also home to an odd yet fascinating collection of museums.
Get to grips with the histories of chocolate and potatoes at the Choco-Story and Frietmuseum respectively, or learn about traditional Flemish life at the Museum voor Volkskunde.
The return coach to Amsterdam departs around 21:30. Ask staff on the day for exact timings.
