The best way to explore Bruges is to walk around on foot with a guide book but if you don't have time (or book) then taking a horse carriage ride is a very good alternative. The coachman speaks good English and tells many interesting facts along the way. The ride stops half way at a nice area so you have... More

Our visit to Bruges coincided with my birthday so what better way to see the sights in a horse drawn carriage. Our guide Sophie spoke excellent English & her funny commentary was very entertaining. This really helped us get our bearings for the rest of the day. Expensive for 50euro for just 2. Obviously a group of 4 makes it... More

I was with my wife and my baby. The lady was so friendly and she started to explain everything about old buildings history and she had a very good English. It was a pleasant ride in which we scan main places in the city with touch of explanation. The ride was 50€ excluding the tip for 40 minutes with 5... More

My wife and I paid the 50 euro price for a 40 minute ride around Bruges. We had already been walking Bruges, so we really didn't observe anything new. Regardless, the ride was pleasant and interesting. We did stop for 15 minutes to water and feed the horse, so we only rode for about 25 minutes; that's 2 euros a... More

My favourite memory of Bruges was definitely the lovely, romantic horse & carriage ride round the cobbled streets. Our guide was lovely & informative without being intrusive. Definitely recommend.

We hired a carriage- 50 euro for a 40 minute tour of Bruges for 5 of us. Our driver Laura kept us well informed of the interesting sites and also added little extra details which we found fascinating. Halfway through, you have a 5 minute break to allow the horses to have a bit of a rest and food. Our... More

This is a lovely way to see the city! It cost 50 euros per carriage and it lasts for about 30 mins! You get to see all the lovely places around Bruges plus some running commentary from the people on the carriages.
