Insightful tour delivered by a friendly guide

We booked this tour as a private tour and didn't regret it. The tour guide picked us up at our hotel on time, was really friendly and accommodated to our requests. The tour was just the right amount of history for my wife and I, as we generally prefer more insight into present day culture than a place's lenghty history. It was a good pace and we had the opportunity to stop a couple of times to take certain sites in, so it wasn't a tour where you were constantly on the move.

Competent, friendly, a top tour

Mareike came to the betrayed meeting point on time. After that, the 2 hours of the guided tour (in German) through Ghent passed by on the fly. Not only that she knows and loves your city very well, Mareike was able to answer all of our questions with joy, fun and knowledge. Ghent has grown even more dear to us thanks to her very nice nature and we want to come. Maybe with another tour that takes special places into account ...

Mrs. Hildegarde was our guide. It was very informative, enjoyable tour from a real local. Thank you again, my mother and I enjoyed a lot. Me and my mother have had the luxury of a "private" tour. It's very recommendable instead of joining a group.
