        Nick was amazing - he made the tour just what we wanted! It was a beautiful city that he knew so much about and was a passionate local. He caught on quickly to what interested us and he was all over it! The tour was educational, cultural, historical, and massively fun!! Couldn’t recommend more highly!!

        Louis knows his city history and his enthusiasm is infectious. Ghent can be confusing to navigate and we were grateful for an expert guide.

        Private Tour is Gent”s Hidden Gem
        Debra_M, Feb 2023
        Nick was extraordinarily informative with regards to the history, architecture, and art aspect of Ghent. He also took me to 2 artisanal chocolate shops which were an added treat and allowed me to gift shop. He was entertaining and guided me to other points of interest while visiting Belgium. I highly recommend this private tour which avoids the more crowded, impersonalized tours.

        A lot of information and knowledge.

        Iris showed us out of the way places and gave us a great historic review of the city. She clearly loves her work and the town she lives in. She geared the tour towards our interests and our pace. Wonderful job.

        You call it "work", we call it "passion" ;-) Thanks for the awesome review!

        Eric was fantastic and made the tour fun, informative and kept us laughing along the way. His lifelong experience of growing up and living in Ghent made him the perfect tour guide for this wonderful city.

        Vera is a magnificent, energetic and fabulously knowledgeable guide for her home city, which she clearly loves! I strongly recommend any tour of Ghent via Charlie Tours with Vera. You simply won’t want it to end.
