We enjoyed this canal tour of Ghent. There was a bit of confusion as to where to meet the boat (two launch locations) but after we figured it out we had a lovely 50 minute tour of the city. Our guide did the tour in three languages - swapping easily between English, French and Spanish/Italian (not sure) - so we missed about a third of the commentary. What we did understand was interesting with a good dose of humor. For approximately seven euro each this tour is a steal!

Decide to do the boat trip as it was included in the Ghent City Card. Quite informative but but we hardly went anywhere. You could have got the same if not more from a tour guide. Lasted forty minutes and I doubt if we covered a mile.

Really enjoyed this tour. We did a boat tour in Gent and Bruges and while Bruges had more beautiful things to look at while on the water, the tour in Gent was equally as good as it was cheaper, longer and the tour guide was much better: Hans in this case. He was really knowledgeable, informative and has a good sense of humour. They even took us for a 50 minute tour when there was only 7 of us on the boat so we weren't waiting around. Would recommend this and this company (the yellow banker near the bridge) to anyone visiting Gent.
