I was very lucky to be the only person on this particular tour. The guide was exceptional friendly, informative and helpful. Ghent views from the canals are beautiful and so much history. Just one minor point to watch for my itinerary indicated that tours start from 10.00 am but they actually start at 10.30.

Very nice tour with pertinent information. Good service all around.

Beautiful trip through a beautiful city. The one tour guide delivered the tour in multiple languages alternately which was occasionally confusing, as you could not always be sure whether the site being described was about to be passed, currently being passed or just passed. Obviously you make do with the resources you've got and the guide was comfortably multilingual, but a dedicated English language guide would have made it a five star rating from me.

You can buy tickets at the stand in Ghent that this directs you to. It was a nice covered boat and good to get out of the freezing cold when we were there but it was only OK.
