Bus was comfortable and good steady driver. Return journey was half an hour later than is should have been. Supposed to leave every half an hour. Missed the 3pm which was on time and only 3 travellers aboard. Next bus should have been 3.30 but turned up at 4.05 and a long queue was waiting. Fortunately everyone was able to get on. Bit disappointing re the wait from 3.20 until 4.05.

We arrived on a ship in zebrugge and wanted to explore Bruges. We arrived on Easter Sunday where trains were once an hour and not time efficient! The cost for he transferres from the port into Bruges was the same price for 3 of us than arranging a transfer with our cruise line. Worked out at about £16 each return. Booked whilst onboard our cruise for the next day. Staff were helpful and the whole process really was easy peasey. Would use again. Thank you.

It was close to the terminal. Easy to find. No red buses from the ship to the entrance of the port terminal, we used our ships port bus to the entrance. When we got there they should have two queues, those with their QR code because they booked in advance and a queue for those who hadn’t. A negative we had to wait another 15-20 mins until the coach was full before it set off. Even more pressure as we had already lost 2 hours. Our ship was 2 hours late and was told the last bus back was 16.30pm so we only got 3 hours in Bruges which was rushed. I would use them again but communication wasn’t good as we heard the last bus was 17.30. Bruges is fabulous but we felt a little short changed as we didn’t have enough time to spend in Bruges.
