We were a weekend in Ghent with our 4 godchildren and booked a trip with Ben. We hired 3 tandem bikes, it was hilarious. Our 4 children enjoyed every minute. Ben was animating and educational in the same time. We strongly recommend a trip with Ben, he's by far the best guide of Ghent!

Your outside the box suggestion to rent tandem bikes for a custom Ghent tour, was really a magnificent idea. You could see that the youngsters had the time of their life riding these tandem bikes. I would also like to thank you for your kind words about my guiding qualities. That means a lot to me as a certified Ghent guide. Warm greetings, Ben Ben's Ghent

Absolutely outstanding!! Ben went above and beyond! Even before the tour. He provided me contacts to Ghent history in answer to my many questions. No other tour guide offered anything. And, then his tour ... it was thorough, interesting, pertinent to what I wanted and, of course, very fun! He is still helpful. You can't find anyone better than Ben in Ghent. He is the best by far, hands down!

Your raving review really makes my day. For all my custom tours, I always try to be as helpful as I can. I guess it's part of my DNA. I'm glad that you appreciate that so much. Furthermore: I don't know if I'm the best guide in Ghent, but I'm certainly an official certified guide. And that really makes a difference, in my opinion. Plus: I'm a local and I live in downtown Ghent. Say hi to your husband. Warm greetings, Ben Ben's Ghent

Hi Andres, I'm glad you enjoyed my Ghent Tour so much. It was a pleasure having you on my tour. I don't know if I'm the best guide in Ghent, but at least I'm a certified one. Sure, I have lots of stories about the meaning of life, especially after a few strong Belgian beers. Afterwards, black-outs prevent me from sharing them with other people. 😜 Warm greetings, Ben from Ben's Ghent

Ben was amazing. Very knowledgeable, excellent personality along with fun passion, delivery, flexibility. We had combined day of private tours in Bruges in morning, and Ghent in afternoon - and both Ben and Ghent won out for sure for my wife and I. We also had some weather and our own logistical challenges, but Ben handled it perfectly and was very helpful. We cannot recommend Ben enough, and after 24 days and 8 countries in Europe and many tours - Ben clearly was one of the best for sure. Would give him and his tour 6+ stars if could !

Dear Mister M, You really make me blush with your almost ecstatic review. I'm glad you enjoyed my Ghent Tour so much, despite the rain showers. I'm sure you will never forget the bloody story of Emperor Charles and the noose bearers. Next time you come to Ghent, do not forget to visit the world famous Ghent Altarpiece aka The Adoration of the Mystic Lamb by Jan van Eyck, embedded in a fantastic augmented reality experience inside the Crypt of Saint Bavo's Cathedral. I have no words to express how happy I am with your five star review of my custom Ghent Tour. Please say hi to your charming wife. Warm greetings, Ben from Ben's Ghent

Me and my wife saw the pamphlet on the entrance of the hotel we stayed in. It was a free tour we took advantage of on our last night in Ghent. It was just me and my husband who showed up for the tour and we thought Ben wont do the tour anymore or maybe cut the tour short. But to our surprise he said we will still do the two-hour tour. Ben was so knowledgeable and informative. He was so engaging and enthusiastic about sharing the history and beauty of Ghent. The tour featured Ghents beautiful lighting, the history and architecture, as well as advice on what other things we could do during our stay. You might want to do it on your first day. As part of our trip, we are moving to Bruges (We wish we can bring him there too)

Wow! What a wonderful surprise to receive a review like yours. I'm glad you appreciated my Gorgeous Ghent by night Tour so much. And yes, you are right: this was actually a private tour, disguised as a free tour. By a certified Ghent city guide. I only do this when people are really enthusiastic and really want to learn about the history, architecture and culture of Ghent. Good luck with your bank career in Norway. Warm greetings, Ben Ben's Ghent

I'm so excited by your raving review of your Ghent team building/private walking tour. Every cobblestone has its own story, so to speak. That shows you the richness of the history of Ghent. I must say: I appreciate the great Indian food you serve in your restaurant: always an explosion of flavours and a real culinary journey. Warm greetings, Ben Ben's Ghent

Had a fantastic walking tour of Old Town with Ben, very down to earth experience with lots of laughter mixed with his exceptional knowledge on the history of Ghent.
Ben, thanks for the Q&A sessions along the way, we really enjoyed them. One of the best walking tours we have done sofar on our 3 month tour of Europe.
Would highly recommend booking Ben, if you are looking for a tour of Ghent.
