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.

The tour was very interesting and informative. Our guide Tom gave detailed information about Belgian beer. There were a few beers to try in really different flavors. He responded to the various questions posed by the participants

Had a great time on the tour! Tour guide Tom Muller was very cool and funny and knew the city well. Would definitely recommend the tour to people of all ages!

Really worth doing, esp if you're new in the city and want to get familiar with it a little bit. Excellent guide from Scotland, Fraiser!

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