When i was invited to the Ghent Port Tours i was a little bit apprehensive, i thought it is going to be a very boring tour that will ruin my weekend. But to my suprise it is 5 star and highly recommended-fascinating, informative and educational. I will do it again and next time i will concentrate more.

I personally found this tour to be the most romantic of all my travels. The peaceful boat moves along the beautiful buildings and old castles. Some of the stories of the castles are sad about torture. yet, together with the riverside performances and great people it is a lovely treat.

Ghent is similar, although larger than Bruges. The various churches are beautiful and the views along the river at the centre outstanding. One needs to stay for several days in order to enjoy what it has to offer but even a short visit leaves one impressed by its attractions.

Our local friends told us to make our reservation in time, and that was really necessary. The boat trip took two hours and we sat... More
