Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Your day trip starts at a location in central Paris, where you board a tour bus for the drive across the Belgian border to Bruges. 

When you arrive, you have plenty of free time to explore the city independently. (Entrance fees, food, and drinks are at your own expense.) You won't want to miss the historic city center, a UNESCO World Heritage Site known for its medieval architecture. Stop by Onze Lieve Vrouwekerk (the Church of Our Lady), one of the city's most famous landmarks and home to Michelangelo's 'Madonna and Child.' Then visit a museum to see Flemish artwork, taste regional specialties such as Belgian chocolate, or visit a Benedictine monastery. The Stadhuis (City Hall) and the Belfry of Bruges are two very popular attractions. Upgrade to include an audio guide to listen to historical commentary while you explore.

During the summer months (April to October), enjoy admission to a canal cruise so you can explore the "Venice of the North" from the water.

At the end of your time in Bruges, hop on your coach for the drive back to Paris, where your tour ends with drop-off at your day's starting point.

Great Bruges Transportation Option
Brianna_B
, Feb 2020
A great option if you're looking for transportation to and from Bruges with the ability to do your own thing during the day! The cost of this experience was around the same cost of a round-trip ticket from Paris to Bruges and back. The bus got into Bruges late in the morning and we left around 4:30pm, which was honestly the perfect amount of time to explore the city (I was able to grab breakfast, do a brewery tour, and do a walking tour within that time frame). My only suggestion would be to have the pick-up be a little bit more organized. Since the pick-up time is so early in the morning, there was some confusion between attendees on which bus to get on and which bus was going there. It definitely would have been helpful to have a point of contact meeting us at the bus to let us know which bus to get on.

This is a long trip from Paris but I felt well worth it. Bruges is a beautiful city with quaint shops and lots of restaurants. We enjoyed the river cruise and lunch. It was a wonderful day exploring the town. The tour was very punctual and we had plenty of time to explore.

Very quaint medieval city! Our tour was very well organized and we had more than enough time to explore the city itself using the independently audio tour! Definitely worth every penny! Would definitely visit again!

For independent travelers, this is a perfect trip. My daughter and I enjoyed the relaxing 4 hr bus trip from Paris to Bruges, then were walked into the center of the city by a tour guide, given a map of Bruges, and told where to meet up again after 5 hours on our own. We checked out a brewery in the historical center, ate a delicious lunch in an outdoor cafe', and shopped/walked around town. We only wish we could have spent more time in this lovely place. For those who prefer to have a tour guide with them throughout the whole day in the city, there is also that option.

Una mala experiencia.

La guía actuó de mala manera al pedido de una persona mayor que requirió asistencia ya que por error compró la audio guía y no la guía personalizada por lo que le dieron un aparato y la pobre señora tomó tal estado de nervios que se quería regresar a lo que la guía le respondió irónicamente. Recomiendo hacer un free tour en el lugar.

Brujas
, Jul 2018
Visitar Brujas fue como viajar en el tiempo, es un lugar mágico por sus paisajes y arquitectura. Nosotros tomamos la excursión desde París, a través de Big Bus, el servicio y el transporte de primera, muy buenos. No fue necesario comprar paquete con guía ni audio guía, el recorrido los hicimos solos y nos pareció fabuloso.
