Very enriching guided tour with Philippe, a veritable well of science in all fields: history, architecture, etc. A professional who has prepared his subject well in every detail. We toured important sites. He also gave us addresses of restaurants with specialties and advice for other visits including the altarpiece of the mystical lamb.

This was a great way to see the city, and our guide Joeri was super!

Ghent is a beautiful city, and Joeri, our guide, did a fantastic job showing off the city that he loves. He made great suggestions since we didn't have anything particular in mind, and went at just the right pace for our 3 hour tour. His English is perfect, and he was very thoughtful, making sure we had a great time and really enjoyed our visit. I recommend this way to do a tour, and also recommend Joeri. Thank you for a very memorable day in Ghent. We only wish we had more time!!

Il fut agréable que Francis nous ait contacté avant la visite afin de connaître nos centres d'intérêts pour bien préparer les deux heures que nous allions partager ensemble. Il a pu nous aider dans le choix d'un établissement pour le petit déjeuner. Il était ponctuel et a même donné un peu plus de son temps que le temps prévu. Il est fier de sa ville et en a une très bonne connaissance ! Une super visite très intéressante avec une personnalité bien sympathique.
