If you like drinking Belgium beer with a local person, that knows everything about Belgium beer, and drinking that beer at 3 different bars in Ghent, then you need to sigh up for this tour. Liselot Caura is the owner, guide for this adventure. She knows the people that work at the bears and is friendly and passionate about Belgium beer. You walk between the 3 different bars and the beer you drink is included in the tour price! So, I recommend this tour, 5 stars.

We loved the tour - highly recommended for anyone visiting Ghent. Liselot was charming and interesting and took us to 3 separate places to sample a wide range of Belgian beers. On a sunny warm day it was bliss. We also learned a good deal about Triple brews and Trappist beers etc. Excellent language skills.
