    Very beautiful city and James was an amazing tour guide. I definitely recommend this tour. The cobbled stones are definitely an attraction on its own❤️
    Amazing town and tour!
    Brian_M, May 2023
    Onur was a great guide! Lots of good stories. The landscape of downtown Ghent is out of this world. It is a must see!
    Onur was great
    Lyuboslav_K, May 2023
    We had an amazing time in Ghent. Onur was a great tour guide and we learned a lot about the town and the history behind it.
    Good tour for short time in Ghent.
    Margaret_D, Apr 2023
    It was a good tour. We covered the area and appreciated the honesty in the "not quite so old" buildings. We only had a short time in Ghent and taking the tour gave us a great layout. We tried to find the Friday Market but the directions were sufficient without a map or without WIFI. We took a canal tour on our own afterward.
    Lots of Laughs in Gent
    Tracy_H, Apr 2023
    Our guide was great and had a wonderful sense of humor when explaining the stops along the way. She did a great job keeping our large group together.
    Esther_B, Apr 2023
    Fantastic. The 10.30 tour guide (Onur?) was a very entertaining and knowledgeable tour guide. Ghent is a lovely town to visit.
    Enjoyable excursion

    Fantastic tour
    Lisa_H, Dec 2022
    This was my favorite tour of our trip so far. Sebastian was a great tour guide, and we felt lucky to have him show us around Ghent! He was engaging, witty and shared great stories and history. He was also incredibly thoughtful and was mindful to keep us moving due to the cold. At one point, he mentioned a good place to get coffee or warm drink near where he would be talking as he knew some of us were very cold and might need to warm up in order to finish the tour. Thank you for a great time in Ghent, Sebastian!

    Sebastian was great! I enjoyed the way he told stories and he was engaging. I learned a lot about Gent and it was a good way to orient myself to the city.
    Nice Introduction to Gent!
    Sarah_R, Oct 2022
    We enjoyed our Walking Tour of Gent as a nice introduction to the City. James did a great job sharing tons of history and covering lots of ground on foot. So many photo opportunities in this gorgeous City! We had a rather large group and it seemed that several people just walked up and joined for free even though we had booked the Tour online and paid the fee of $4 per person. Regardless…a small price to pay to gain so much knowledge of Gent.
    Great job Nathalie
    Alicia_D, Sept 2022
    Nathalie was great! Very informative and knowledgeable. I loved all the history behind Ghent and they way she explained it :)
    Can't go wrong with these tours
    Abby_W, Sept 2022
    Our guide (Christian I believe?) was excellent and told great stories on both the day and evening tours. It was a great overview of the city history with a ton of interesting stops and good and drink recommendations from a local. A great choice for a tour!
    Terrific tour
    Fern_D, Sept 2022
    Sebastian is a gem! Very funny and has a good grasp on the history and culture of Gent. He gave us a great overview of the city.
