We have just traveled through the city of Ghent with our two little girls aged 13 and 14. They did not see the time pass and remained concentrated almost the entire period. A relaxed, playful and open experience on the city's monuments. I recommend it for a walk with children or grandchildren To test in a group perhaps also Congratulations and good luck to your team
