Motor taxis and horse drawn taxis are allowed to go into the city centre to drop of and pick up fares.

Last time I visited Bruges in May we had a mini van which dropped us off and picked us up right in the main square. There was a time when they used to use a drop off point on the outskirts but that seems to be in the past now, .... Neil.

In July we were bussed for free to the nearby town at the port (which is a long way from bruges and town)We were dropped off at the train station which has frequent services into Bruges for 7 eruos (i think) or you could pick up a taxi into bruges (30mins) for 32 eruos. The ship excursions were astronomic and poor value into bruges as it is a small town easily enjoyed on foot and there are canal trips going from loads of laces @ 6 euros each.

It is amazing how many guest I have spoken to over the last few weeks that have booked excursions through the cruise liner, which I may add are quite expensive. Cruise liners make a lot of money selling excursions at a hefty premium, but many people are happy to pay the extra because booking with the ship is the easy option and they have the comfort of knowing the captain will not leave port until everyone on his ships tours is back on board. I totally understand the reasons behind this but b...
