Doris was our guide to Gent and was EXCELLENT! She informed us of the history of this magnificent town. We loved it! Doris met us at the train and together we took the tram into town. She is a local. She also made sure we tried all the things Gent is known for, I will leave as a surprize for you, but my husband said the Kwak Belgian Beer she recommended was the best he ever had. Go to Gent and request Doris.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Cherie, thank you so much for your nice comments! So glad to hear that the beer was a success! :-) Hope you all enjoyed Iceland. All the best to all of you, Greetings Doris
Sherri HoeflingUnited States
Doris was most excellent. She arrived at our hotel on time and showed us around Ghent. She knew many great stories. She was very good at helping us orient our selves and kept pointing out landmarks so that we could find our way back on our own. Just what we needed.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Sherri and Cathy, It was a pleasure hosting you in my hometown. I hope you enjoy the remainder of your holidays in Gent. All the best, Doris
Doris was awesome! She met us at our hotel and took us around the city center area describing all the history you could think of in this beautiful city. She was also accommodating in going slow for my mom who has some mobility problems. I would absolutely recommend Doris as your guide and a visit to Gent 100%!! Thank you for a lovely experience!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: hi Savannah, thank You for booking me:-) I hope you enjoyed your day today in Gent? Have a nice trip back home and please feel free to get in touch any time. Greetings Doris

Well-paced, informative tour! If you only have a day in Ghent and want to learn more about the city, this is a wonderful way to learn about this beautiful city. Find out the best places for coffee, chocolate, beer, shopping. The tour is a great insider's guide. For Americans, you'll get a kick out of the plaque that marks where the American delegation stayed to negotiate the Treaty of Ghent.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Michael, Thanks for the positive feedback! Say hello to the family. And perhaps we can welcome you back to Belgium next year? Greetings, Doris
We just completed a walking tour of the center of Ghent. Our tour guide was Doris. She was wonderful. Very knowlegable, professional and pleasant to be with. I would highly recommend her as a guide for Ghent.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Keith, Thank you for the review! The pleasure was all mine! I hope you all had a wonderful stay in France! Greetings from Gent, Doris
Yoshi SmithUnited States
Doris was the perfect guide. She was knowledgeable, experienced, thoughtful and patient. She listened to what we wanted to do, showed us all the major sightseeing places in town while providing great stories and historical perspective. She pointed out all the small details that make the town such a special places. Then she showed us the best chocolate shops, restaurant and shopping that only a local can do. We were a group of 4. We all travel often. We all agreed that Doris did an exceptional job!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: wow Yoshi & co, That's quick! Did you like the local dishes? Good that you ALL liked the tour:-) I hope to see some of the pictures you took this morning. Thank you for the nice review and I wish you a nice continuation of your European journey. All the best to the 4 of you Enjoy Europe, Greetings Doris
Great concept with swift administration! Doris is a great guide with feeling for her audience. She took even more than her time to creat a great day. Thank you very much Doris. I will use this formula again in the future.

We very much enjoyed our tour with Doris. She was very flexible and gave us a great introduction to Ghent.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you David! All the best to both of you.
Bhavesh ShethUnited States
Excellent tour by Doris. She picked us on time from the train station, and all through the trip she provided detailed information about Gent as only a local would know. She allowed us to conduct the tour at our own pace while ensuring we covered all the major sights. She is a knowledgeable person with a global outlook since she's traveled and stayed extensively overseas as well. Doris was very pleasant and caring throughout the entire trip.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Bavesh, Thank you very much for your kind words. It was my pleasure showing you around my beautiful city called Ghent:-) I also enjoyed the tour very much. All the best to you both!
Raymond La CharitéUnited States
She is enthusiastic, knowledgeable, helpful, and thoroughly charming. She made sure that our visit was memorable, so much so that we would like to return. Raymond & Gini La Charité
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Raymond and Gini, Please do come back! Doris
Elizabeth PuckerinUnited States
The tour was perfect. I was in Europe for business and had the opportunity to travel to Gent for the weekend. I knew a little about Gent but Doris was able to identify a lot of cultural and history that really made it interesting. I wanted to see the Gent altarpiece and Doris identified a lot of other features that really made it better than just seeing the art work by itself. Much better than a bus tour!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Nice to read you liked it Betty. I enjoyed showing you around my hometown Ghent. Have a safe flight back next week and enjoy the candies! Doris
