Good way to sightsee.
, Jul 2022
Excellent views of the city and a relaxing way to do sightseeing. Our guide spoke in French, Dutch and English. The descriptions were a bit brief and delivered with little excitement. Nevertheless, well worth the time and money.

This was the perfect tour of Ghent. We learned so many interesting things about the city and it's history in a tour that was just the right length of time!
Boat Tour for All

Great Boat tour, the guide was hilarious and super competente. Strongly recommend. The price affordable and not expensive.
Inconsiderate and Crafty !

We reported 10 minutes before reporting time of 10 A.M. The lady at the reception informed that we could not be accommodated till 1300 H as they had received group bookings for the boats till 1300 H for day. She was informed that this was unfair as we had paid confirmed booking for the Boat Trip and that we were booked elsewhere post 1200 H. She informed that she could not help and that we should claim refund from the Company making the reservation. Request the advance paid be refunded as the service was not provided.
Well worth it

You can buy tickets at the stand in Ghent that this directs you to. It was a nice covered boat and good to get out of the freezing cold when we were there but it was only OK.

Beautiful trip through a beautiful city. The one tour guide delivered the tour in multiple languages alternately which was occasionally confusing, as you could not always be sure whether the site being described was about to be passed, currently being passed or just passed. Obviously you make do with the resources you've got and the guide was comfortably multilingual, but a dedicated English language guide would have made it a five star rating from me.

I was very lucky to be the only person on this particular tour. The guide was exceptional friendly, informative and helpful. Ghent views from the canals are beautiful and so much history. Just one minor point to watch for my itinerary indicated that tours start from 10.00 am but they actually start at 10.30.
Excellent guide avec plein humour

Bonne explication de la charmante ville de Gent avec magnifiques architectures et le château des comtes.

Es war eine sehr schöne Tour, nur den Guide konnte man je nachdem wo man saß nicht so sehr gut verstehen. Trotzdem sehr zu empfehlen!
