This was a great trip! The bus was comfortable, especially since there was a toilet available and it's a 3 hour trip. I liked how the host told interesting things along the way. We chose not to go along on the initial 20-30 minute orientation upon arrival, but it was certainly a nice thing to offer. I'm sure those who participated found it helpful. The best part was being able to go off on our own and not be tied to a group. I would highly recommend this trip.Reviewed by: Jane M, April 2014
Trip described as 2.5 hrs one way in duration , but was closer to 3.5 hrs one way. Bus was a double decker and drove at snail pace. We felt cramped and uncomfortable during the ride. Bruges was wonderful and I would do again despite the difficult conditions on bus.Reviewed by: Kathleen B, April 2014
It was good to get into Brussels for the day. It is a very, very long day however.
The city centre (old medieval area) is stunning and well worth the visit. So much to see.
The chocolate shops are amazing in number and variety of choices.
Was in time to go to exposition of the blood of Christ at the Basicilica of the Holy Blood. What a fantastic, unexpected experience.
Seeing the Madonna and Child by Michaelangelo in the Church of the Madonna was also a very special treat for me.
The 'free time' went too quickly, it was so rushed.
Once again the 3 hour drive back to Amsterdam was very tiring. Perhaps a two day trip with a hotel layover would make more sense.
Would love to have seen Brussels as well. Perhaps the two day trip could incorporate both Belgium cities.
The day trip to Bruges was grueling ! It's a 3 1/2 4 trip to the town. The guide that we had took us from the bus thru the middle of town and he just took to much time to do a walking tour to find our meeting place once he let us go on our own. It was more important for us to hear about his friends shop and which canal boat to take than it was to give us enough time to enjoy this small beautiful town. Then he took a bus load of people to the toilets b/4 he let us go. You could not even completely hear what he had to say. It just left us with to little time. Then another 4+ hr ride back to Amsterdam!! Less talk more time!! Love the town!!Reviewed by: Poo, April 2014
Again the huge crowds problem. It would be better if the group is reduce by half.
Definitly a good experience in Bruges. Quite like the cruise.
