What to expect
This would be easier to experience than to describe as there are not enough adjectives to capture the real charm of the city. However, here is a sneak peak of what it is included:
Ghent is positioned within the Flamish speaking part of Belgium, therefore do not be surprised if you are automatically labelled as a tourist. In fact, there’s nothing bad about it, only advantages. The local-to-tourist ratio is actually much higher, which means you will have a truly authentic adventure . Additionally, Ghent plays host to a fascinating collection of ancient architecture which is worth admiring and taking pictures of, especially because you can catch a history lesson at glance only by looking at it. To boost your interest even more, the activity includes a 30 min canal ride to relax and enjoy the breath-taking landscapes. The scenic canal route and the beer you will taste on-board will make your experience priceless for sure.
Local Belgian beers
Apart from the sightseeing part, Ghent will also charm you with its astoundingly flavoured beers. In case you are a beer lover – this tour is perfect for you. In case you’re not sure whether you are willing to give beer a chance or not – you should! Belgian beers, in particular the ones from Ghent, are 100% different from any commercial ones you have tried before. Considering the large variety of golden liquid Belgium is rich in, we will make sure we find the perfect beer for your tastes. The Ghent beer tour consists of 6 beer tastings, all different from each other, ranging in flavours, colours, smells and alcohol percentages, along with small complimentary snack (based on availability). On top of this, you will discover vibrant out-of-sight taverns, which you might have not given a try on your own, but which you will adore.
