Description

This is more than a sightseeing trip. The concept of this tour is that your visit becomes a highly personalized experience.  First: we travel in small groups (> 10 & < 20 pax). Secondly: the actual indoor visit to the absolute highlights of the city is included.. Third: you have ample free time to pursue your own interests: a visit to one of the main museums, shopping etc.

The city of Ghent is truly the hidden treasure. During the drive to Ghent your guide will share his passion for the ancient capital of Flanders. He will really bring its history alive.  On his tour you will see all the highlights of Ghent:  the churches of Saint Jacob and Saint Michael and Saint Nicolas. , the Town Hall, the Belfry Tower, the Cloth Hall, the old harbor. You get a full guided tour of the Cathedral including an audio guided visit to the world famous Adoration of the Lamb painted by the brothers van Eyck. The tour of Ghent also includes a guided visit to the dramatic Castle of the Count of Flanders. Built in the late 12th century, this mighty fortress still looms over the center of Ghent and remains one of Europe’s most important medieval castles. Your guide will also take you to the medieval Great Butchers’ Hall, the central place where meat was inspected and traded. You can taste the delicious Ganda Ham which is hung up to cure from the magnificent exposed wooden rafters. This ham is still salted and dried by craftspeople following an age-old traditional recipe.
