Private Canal Tour

I'm going to Brussels and Brugge in May for my honeymoon. Is there anyway to book a 2-person canal tour in Brussels or Bruge? I see lots of group tours, but no private tours.

A canal tour in Brussels? There is a canal running through Brussels, but as far as I know not fit for a romantic experience.

I visit Bruges quiet often, once a month at least and actually never noticed private boats on the canals in the historic city centre. Only commercial tourist boats are allowed, however Bootex offers private tours for a hefty €240,-. But contact them first, see: http://www.boottochten-brugge.be/en and for an other company: http://www.nvstael.com/

Also Ghent is a place for a boat tour, a number of companies offer them, but see there also private boats on the canals: http://www.visitgent.be/en/node/9991/?context=tourist

I took one of the public canal boat tours in Brugge, it was interesting and informative but not romantic by any means. Don't know about Brussels. I also took the canal boat in Gent, again, interesting but not romantic, although the story about the swans facing each other could be a moment...
