She was very friendly and eager to teach us about beer and the area. I'd highly recommend this tour.

    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.

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.
