Full description
Begin your day with a pickup from a central meeting point in Brussels. From there, sit back and enjoy Belgium and its landscapes on your drive from Brussels to Ghent.

Upon your arrival to Ghent, your guide will walk with you through the historic city whilst telling you all about the history and stories of the city. During your guided walking tour you will learn all the stories behind the most famous attractions of Ghent, which include the Belfort Tower, St. Michaels Bridge, and the 89-meter-tall Saint Bavo Cathedral.

Outside of that you will also enjoy a river cruise of approximately 40 minutes. This river cruise will show you the most famous highlights of Ghent from a totally different perspective, as you experience the medieval town from the water.
