Bruges is a such a lovely and charming city. During 32 minutes, this boat tour takes you through the canals while the driver speaks in three languages (Dutch/French/English) telling you about some interesting points in the city.

We decided to take this canal cruise because the line was shorter, but it was a great cruise. The boat operator gave a great commentary on the cruise, explaining all of the buildings and bridges that we passed.
