Value for money

Visiting Brugge at Christmas was beautiful. Simple service from the cruise terminal and pick up. I would highly recommend as a cheaper alternative to cruise company.

The reliability of your transport and ease of finding. Brugge is a lovely city. Couple of Christmas markets. Would use viator again
No Refund

Our cruise ship couldn’t stop at the port because of weather. We not only didn’t get to see Bruges, we didn’t get any of our money refunded. Don’t make a reservation in advance.

Dear Owen Many thanks for your message. Your cruiseship 'ROTTERDAM' has indeed cancelled their port call on 21/10/2020 at 'Zeebrugge'. Unfortunately we do regret your message stating that there was no refund? As every other booking we received for the cruiseship 'ROTTERDAM' which would have been arrived yesterday 21/10/2021, also your booking was 100% refunded. As a matter of fact, we submitted the refund on 20/10/2021 at 11:57 PM. So the day before your arrival the 100% refund was already 100% submitted. Besides this we messaged you about this 100% refund on 20/10/2021 at 11:56 PM via the 'mesage traveler' option of Viator. It is no fun for everyone that a port is cancelled but we do guarantee a 100% refund for every cruiseship which is unable to dock Zeebrugge due to unforseen circumstances. Many thanks and hope to welcome you soon in Zeebrugge! Kind regards Maxime
Inexpensive return transfer to Bruges from Port
, Oct 2021
Very, very close to port exit building. Very efficient with tickets. Coach departed on time. An easy 25 minute journey. Drop off at a convenient location to begin walking through the old buildings and alongside waterways to the centre of old Bruges. Coaches departed every 30 minutes from 13.30 to return to the ship.
Excellent service with flexibility
, Oct 2021
Princess cruises wanted nearly 200 dollars to transport us to Bruges, with no choice of departure or return times. This offered flexibility at a quarter of the price
Good service
, Oct 2021
Shuttle service is very convenient at the Dock. It is good but the coach parks quite a way from centre of Brugge so be prepared for a walk.

Day trip from P&O cruise ship docked in Zeebrugge. Coach office adjacent to Cruise Terminal, and very quickly we were on clean, modern coach on way to the bus park close to Bruges city centre. after leaving the coach we noticed an old barge which had been turned into a restaurant. Great place for a coffee or even a full meal. Been to Bruges many times since we were kids (now retired) and it is still such a special place in Europe. Used Viator before in Hawaii and great service there, hence using them in Belgium.

Booking was easy and when we arrived the process was straightforward. The staff were very friendly and helpful and we saved ourselves a lot of money instead of taking the cruise excursion, which did exactly the same trip!

Excellent Service

We use the Viator shuttle into Bruges every time we dock. It’s really convenient for the port gate, goes directly into Bruges and runs regularly on time. Very well organised by the team and at a reasonable cost. Excellent.
