Despite bad weather (rain and cold wind) the tour was a nice experience that brought us closer to Ghent. The guide was a real professional who also steered the relatively large group well and conveyed his information spiced with many nice anecdotes in an easy-to-understand, powerful voice in very good English. Very small criticism: speak a little more slowly and calmly forego some information.

Didn’t know what to expect and at the end had a great time. Alvaro our guide really make us feel welcomed. He has a passion for his work and has given us a lot of information. I strongly recommend this excursion.

The guide was absolutly great, amazing - Maaark (with 3 "a") :))) He is amazing guide, amazing person and totaly will make anybody have the great day of life in Belgium in any place you choose to visit with him.

This was an amazing experience if you’re a group of friends or couples just trying to meet cool people and drink around an unknown city.

It was a great and enjoyable experience. A bit tiring for a 1 day trip but totally worth it!
