Walking Tour of Ghent

Our guide Sophie was wonderful . She knew her stuff and explained everything clearly with at times a nice twist of humor. In addition, she also offered advice on bars , restaurants and shops in the neighborhoods we were visiting. Very nice tour , thank you Sophie and good luck with your art career !

Tour Not As Expected
jhhain, Oct 2022
The tour was not as I expected. It started with the tour guide somewhat ignoring us at the meeting point. We then walked and sat, then walked and sat and did not tour any of the classic churches or buildings. Tour just not as expected. We have taken many tours like this in other cities and this is the first one not living up to previous experiences.
Great tour and guide
Ronald_S, Apr 2022
