A Day in Ghent
Aug 2021 • Couples
My husband and I came in on the train from Bruges. Leaving Bruges, the directions were clear and easy. Once in Ghent, the experience was quite the opposite. We could not figure out which tram to take to Saint Bevos. Help was scarce and misdirection was also common. St. Bevos personnel were at best courteous but more inclined to scold. The virtual tour was shorter than other tours Why? Who knows. The altarpiece was magnificent. The rest was lacking in any type of spiritual renewal. Ghent, itself was dirty and many of the shops were closed. Instead of spending the day in Ghent, following the Rick Steves self guided tour, we scurried back to Bruges.

Reaching city center is complicated and a few weeks later we received 150 Eur fine because our car was not registered(???), even though our car meets all anti pollution standards.... UNACCEPTABLE! go to Bruges instead, much nicer !!! And you are not treated this disgusting way

An Absolute Gem!!!
Sep 2021 • Couples
My wife and I didn't know what to really expect from Ghent. But once we turned the corner and saw this beautiful area, we truly fell in love with it! It is definitely one of the most beautiful and underrated city in all of Belgium and Europe! Just stunning architecture at every corner!

Awesome tour!
Sep 2021 • Couples
Terrific tourguide, fantastic tour! So cool to roam the streets of Gent with a pack of tourists at night and to hear all about Gents mideavals whereabouts. Sebastien made history come alive with his stories. We do want to emphasize that the Dutch didn’t just take the flowerbusiness from Gent, the Gentenaars let us take it from them.

Lots of people everywhere as well as garbage and filth in the river. Hated this place compared to amazing Bruges.

So much character!
Jul 2021 • Friends
Just loved Gent! I visited the city by day and by night and both visits were equally awesome! By day, the city is very lively and just gorgeous (even when it rains). By night, all the buildings light up and there is plenty of choice in nice pubs!

Nice city but be careful with traffic
Jun 2021 • Family
A very nice city to visit with family. When we were there, it was raining nearly always. So it was a bit nuisance but still we had a great time. Just one thing be careful with traffic, especially if you’re driving a car. There’re so many weird sections where you can make a mistake and get penalized high fines.

Larger and less intimate than Brugge
Jul 2020
I love Ghent, which is similar to Brugge in some ways yet larger and less intimate. The main central area is pretty compact with much to see and experience with some fabulous restaurants and of course those views. It's easy to get to from Brussels on a day trip with frequent and inexpensive trains throughout the day.

Lunchtime

We’ve found this cafe while we were very desperate to eat warm food before 17:30. We’ve got as a compliment a shot of lemonade with a touch of orange blossom water. Food was delicious. Shawarma with marinated beef and pickled vegetables was warm, crunchy full of taste and fresh. Watch Out! Don’t forget to prepare CASH.
