It's possible to take a tour on Bruges' canals ("De Reitjes" in Dutch). It takes about 30 min and it gives you quite a good view of the city. The guides are multi-lingual (Spanish, French, German, English, ...) and give good information on the various buildings along the circuit. You can start your tour at several locations: the fishmarket (Vismarkt), Rozenhoedkaai, Dijver, Wollestraat, Onze-Lieve-Vrouwekerk (Church of our Lady). My experience is that the one at the Fishmarket has the shortest queue.
