The guide was good. The groups was big though, around 35 people. The guide didn’t have microphone and we didn’t have an earphone.

The tour was great! Our guide was a polish girl that’s been living in Ghent for a looong time and it was great. She was funny, polite, and amicable. The walk was very nice and the amount of information was just perfect. I could really tell that she was giving us her best throughout the whole tour, 5/5!
