Private tour guide Natalie

Natalie L.

Ghent, Belgium

Hi, my name is Natalie and I was born and raised in the Ghent area but I've since lived on 4 continents to study and work.

I also lived, studied and worked in Brussels. During my years abroad I've obtained a PhD degree in peace and human rights studies and I've started my own sustainable and alternative tourism enterprise in Peru. I'm back where it all started now in Belgium and excited to show visitors my country and my favorite cities.

I am especially focused on unique, authentic and different travel experiences and I always encourage meaningful contacts with the locals. I am especially passionate about social impact tours, off the beaten path experiences but also hidden gems and stories. Because of my educational background, I love to share some general information and background about my home country and I love a good conversation and discussion on any subject.

I am very flexible and spare no efforts to make sure you have the best experience possible on your day with me. Your wish is my command or rather my challenge to develop a great personalized experience and to make sure you learn something valuable and of course that you have a great time.

I hope to see you on your visit to Belgium!

Restrictions
