Informative 2-hour guided tour through Ghent's inner city, much better than a do-it-yourself tour with a booklet

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

We had a most enjoyable tour of Ghent, the iTours I follow rivers tour. We shared this tour with just one other couple, also from Australia. These free tours are a great way to get to know a place.

Never ! Never ! pay for a city tour up front. After years of travelling I have come to the conclusion that free city tours are the best. It forces them to make an effort and earn their cash. If you choose the tour in English it might be in Flemish & English. So thats 50 % less off the... More

We decided to take a chance on a free tour of Gent - and were most pleasantly surprised! We learnt some interesting facts about Gent's famous inhabitants and locations. The tour was planned well, with interesting stops. The guide is calm and friendly and recommended a typical Belgian, value for money eatery, which I really appreciated! Highly recommended for reasonably... More
