Christoph is a super guide who showed us Ghent in an original way. He drove us very safely through the many streets and neighbourhoods. He regularly stopped to explain enthusiastically and with a great dose of humour about the many street artworks and artists that Ghent is rich in. His love for Ghent was contagious and made us immediately fall in love with this beautiful city. Highly recommended!

Highly recommend this tour as a way to get a broader view of Ghent. We were taken to some great spots we would not have seen otherwise and learned many interesting facts about the beautiful city. You don't need to be a strong cyclist to enjoy the tour, but do need to be comfortable on a bike.

A fun bike ride where you see a lot of things that you wouldn't immediately go to. Very enthusiastic guide who knows a lot about the city of Ghent. And which gives a nice view of the art in the city. Highly recommended!

Very interesting tour in Ghent with an eye for less touristic, but very interesting spots. Tempo is not too high, not even for a 59 year old ;)

Nice guide who drives you around Ghent in an original way Shows very beautiful and special places
