What makes this tour special

Ghent is famous for its beautiful medieval architecture and network of canals. As a university town, Ghent was one of the most prosperous European cities of the middle ages - it is larger than Bruges but smaller than Amsterdam and just half an hour's train ride from Brussels. 

On your private tour, you will: 

Enjoy a full day exploring the beautiful medieval city of Ghent in the Flemish northwest of Belgium. Just 35 minutes by train from Brussels, Ghent is a beautiful place to visit - situated at the confluence of two rivers and famous for its charming and very photogenic network of canals that reflect the old bridges that cross them and lovely buildings that line them. 

During the middle ages it was a city-state and one of Europe's most prosperous trading ports; today Ghent is a modern cultural hub, a free-thinking university city with a well-preserved medieval heritage, visible at every turn. 

The city centre is pedestrianised, so it feels like stepping back in time as you wander the cobbled streets and admire the grand gothic castles and cathedrals, explore the nooks and crannies of medieval markets and houses, and learn all about the fascinating history of the charming city, that is also famous for its varieties of Belgian beer and diverse cuisine. 

You'll be able to wander through the quaint cobbled streets and admire the city's major landmarks including Saint Michael's Church, Korenlei and Graslei quays, and 12-century Gravensteen Castle with your knowledgable private guide.
