It is a nice walking tour if you want to know a bit more about Gent's historical center and it's buildings. The guide was sometimes a bit confused between the two languages (English and Dutch), and sometimes he did not give the exact same information in both languages. But overall, he did very well.

You can purchase a Guide through Ghent tourism for 35 EU per hour for a minimum of 2 hours plus 5 EU tax. They will do up to 25 people, but we just got a guide for 2 of us for 3 hours. We wanted the history of Gent, the viewing and presentation of the Mystic Lamb and specific stops... More

Spent a very enjoyable 2 Hour walking history tour with Guido. We were in a small party of 7 people with only Dutch & English for Guido to alternate between which he did faultlessly. His knowledge & passion for the history of Ghent shone throughout.He encouraged questions & explained things easily.The tour was easy to book online the day before.

Really excellent. Highly knowledgable. Gave a great character of the place and the city as a whole, and its role in European history. Took us to some hidden gems that no guidebook would get you in to. Thanks. You really made my trip. 5/5!

We took the tour with a guide named Alex and it was really good. He is a native from Gent, therefore, he knows not only the history and data but also the life in Gent, that makes more attractive and enjoyable the tour. He does a great job. Highly recommend doing this tour. The tour is quite enough for two... More

Coming to Gent with relatively little knowledge of the city, this tour was an excellent way of getting acquainted the streets and the history of the city. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and answered all the questions we threw at her, both on historic Gent and contemporary Belgium, with wit and insight! We had a great time the two hours+...

We found out about this tour from the Tourist Information centre at the Fishmarket on Wednesday. That is where the tour started. However the TI people told us if we booked a day ahead online we would save 2€. We showed up on Friday and our Tour Guide (Alex) told us we would be the only people on the tour.... More

The inner city of Ghent is very interesting with its historic buildings and many other places of interest. In previous years I had some sightseeing tours on foot through the same area, guided by a booklet that I bought in the local Tourist office. Acting such has the definite advantage of the ability to choose a convenient time, or even... More

For €8 this was a decent walking tour around Ghent. It seems that most tours encompass two languages. Ours was French and English, delivered by Guy the Guide. On the whole it was very good, Guy is clearly knowledgable about the city's history and keen to share it with the crowd. We managed to visit a number of key locations... More
