You have an awesome set of videos. Thanks for taking the time to post them. We were on a Baltic cruise in 2008 and your videos reminded me how much I enjoyed the cruise. Pat

OK, Bruges is not part of the Baltics but it does feature in some Baltic cruises so here are a couple of videos from my 5 hours there on Sunday 11 August 2013.

Our port hours were 07.00-15.00 so not lots of time but plenty to get a good feel for the place. An extra 2 hours would have been nice to allow us to poke around some museums or linger over lunch but we still really enjoyed the day.

Anyway this is the Walking Tour http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BFvq9gLib7I Bruges is very compact so there was not that much walking involved. We did not have enough time to climb the belfry because we didn't go to it soon after our arrival, despite being almost alone in the city at the start (we were there by 7.50) That was a bad error. When we did get to it (11.30) the lines were moving too slowly for us to be sure we could do it and make our 1 pm taxi. So if you'd like to climb it (€8) bear this in mind.

We also did a Canal Tour http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-JiNWDXDlxU which was fun and good. It costs €7.60 pp and lasts 30-35 minutes. The driver points things out in 3 languages but it's such a fusillade of info that it's hard to remember much of it. These boat tours don't start until after 10 a.m.

Getting there :

1) Email Taxi Snel stating your ship, number of persons and pick up and return times. (07.30 and 13.00 in our case)
2) They meet you at the ship - there will be a name card on your vehicle, which can take 8 people.
3) It costs €50 each way and the journey takes about 15 minutes.

All the best, Tony
