It's an old cliché that the best way to see a city is "from the water". And it also isn't true of Ghent, which is in fact best seen by going out into the burbs on trams and doing loads of wandering about in the city centre. But the boat trip is an important element, because the waterways are integral... More

We were on route back to Calais from Ypres by coach and the coach organizers handed out a Ghent town centre map. Ghent has so much history so much to see. We could not do the place justice in such a short time. We followed the map/tram lines and saw much of the centre. Plenty of cafes/bars/restaurants as we walked... More

I was really helped by the guidance. You can download the PDF file from Ghent tourism website as well. During my sightseeing, i had many help from people in taking pictures and showing the right path. I had the trip in dec 2012.

This was the first time I experienced a concept like this. We were a group that started with a boat trip where champagne was served and our guide told us about the sights we could view from the canals and the river. Then we started on the walking tour with some stops for historical sights and we entered the first... More

Hour and a half tour within short distance but plenty of history and jokes/gibes. Chance to see interesting architecture in context.

Wonderful City full of beautiful buildings. Before you wonder about too much, get on a boat trip tour to find out what's what in Ghent. Would recommend an open air boat (if weather permits) they are not as wide and can go further. The tour last about 45 mins and is worth every cent of the €6.50.

it was planned to do this city trip together with my sister, so early morning she called in with her husband. It was actually a short drive to Ghent. We putted the car under the Vrijdagmarkt and we started our walk from there. Ghent has a big history and the first statue we saw was "Jacob van Artevelde" in the... More
