Eurostar or ferry tickets and round-trip transport are included.

We will have 1-3 drop-off points in central London. The exact locations will depend on timings & customer preferences on the day.

Grab your passport, and make your own way to London’s Earls Court to meet your guide. Travel on a comfortable air-conditioned bus to either Dover to catch the ferry to Calais in France, or Folkestone to catch the high-speed Eurotunnel train to Calais (depending on daily schedules).

After a short journey, arrive in Calais around 11:55am, and soak up the scenery as you cross the border into Belgium and continue to Bruges.

Your time in Bruges is yours to spend as you please, so perhaps stroll the medieval streets and admire landmarks such as the Church of Our Lady or the Basilica of the Holy Blood. Alternatively, head straight for the Christmas markets, where you can spend your time browsing the many stalls shopping for unique gifts, tree ornaments, or hand-made goods. Be sure to visit the gigantic open-air ice rink in the market square and sample the myriad of festive foods, from delicious gingerbread and Belgian chocolates to mulled wine and Belgian Christmas beer.

Around 5:30pm, meet up with your guide and fellow day-trippers for the journey home.

Please note: Times for the French and Belgian portions of the trip are in local time, which is one hour ahead of London.

    nice day trip

    Really enjoyed this day trip to Brugge. The lady who was running our trip was was nice and helpful. We was lucky to not get stuck in traffic either way so the day ran smoothly. We got plenty of time in bruge, think it was between 4-5 hours. There was a main Christmas market in the square and then another slightly smaller one just a few minutes walk away. It's worth a visit and I would book again.

    Market was disappointing not many stalls selling items. Nasty couple swapped seats on coach and caused a big problem that was no fault of the company as they did not follow the rules. The day was good tour guide very nice and coach lovely

    Brugge was beautiful Christmas...

    Brugge was beautiful Christmas Market crowded, as expected, but the offerings at the market were less than inspiring--very commercial and nothing original. Found better things in the shops. The low rating is due to the terrible tour guide, who treated us like a 3 grade school teacher who was tired of dealing with children and only wanted to retire: we received scoldings, tales of pickpockets and bad people who were likely to prey on us, and grave warnings of needing to stay close by her until the we reached the meeting spot and that we would be left behind if we were even one minute late to the bus. That being said, just prior to getting off the bus, she warned us she was a fast walker and we had better keep up! The entire tour group had not even left the bus before she took off at practically a sprint for the 20 minute walk to the center of town! It was impossible for 90 of the group to keep up, so in the end we gave up. But at least we had the map she had given us--except, as we were to discover, the map was inaccurate and did not include the place the bus was parked. We got lost in the fog on the way back to the bus, having allowed 90 minutes to return. We attempted to call the tour operator to let the tour guide know we were lost, but the number we were given was not in service. My husband finally reached them via their website, but the tour guide never called us back, as they said she would. We finally found a policeman, who told us the map was wrong and that the bus parking was not even on the map--the lot that was indicated did not allow buses! We finally got to the bus with 4 minutes to spare did I mention it was about 28 degrees Fahrenheit?, only to find we were all locked out of the bus, because the bus driver was not there. He showed up about 20 minutes later, apparently also lost. Perhaps he tried using the map too. This could have been a wonderful experience. We saw other tour groups that were well run and not the chaotic and terrifying experience it ended up being.

    If you have the opportunity to book this excursion do it. Granted there is a lot of travel to and from London but Brugge is an enchanting place to visit at Christmas. Strolling through the cobblestone streets really puts you in the holiday spirit
