What people are saying about Ghent

We had a wonderful tour to three different pubs with a very knowledge guide who gave us a great tour of Ghent and Belgium beer. She was very friendly and eager to teach us about beer and the area. I'd highly recommend this tour. We were visiting from Chicago and happy to have such a nice tour guide around the town for the tour.

Liselotte was a great host. Gave us interesting information about the history and making of Belgian beers and led us to unique places that I would otherwise not discovered. Our group was super fun too, so it was a blessing on top:)
