We had a wonderful two hour tour with Onur in Ghent. He had such good knowledge of the city and together with that added his own thrills to the tour. Would def reccomend doing a tour with Onur.

We loved every minute of our tour of Ghent with Hamraz. Firstly she was such a lovely person and extremely friendly. She was so informative and really took us back through the history of Ghent. We got to see so much during the tour - many places I wouldn't have noticed without her help. Thanks so much. You really made our visit to Ghent very special and fun

While it is Belgium’s third-largest city, Ghent offers tourists an amazing array of perfectly-preserved medieval architecture in a city whose size is large enough to have plenty to see and do without being overly touristy. It is the perfect destination to visit to get to know the Flemish Region of Belgium and is only an hour from the country’s largest cities in case you want to do more free walking tours. Visit Ghent with the help of a local guide who can show you the charming city up close and personal as you savor its culture and cuisine.
