Visit Ghent: Visit Flanders' best kept secret during your cruise stop in Antwerp
You will arrive in Antwerp on a cruise ship and want a private tour in Ghent?
Welcome to my hometown:-)
Lonely Planet: "It's surprising how Belgium has managed to stay so quiet abut Ghent for so long. Once medieval Europe's second largest city, over the past century this unsung treasure of a town has developed a strong artistic bent, and is now one of the best places in Europe for culture - there are many fantastic museums and galleries here, and more listed buildings than any other Belgian city.
Ghent's architecture is elegant and imposing, particularly along the scenic old Graslei harbour, and grand medieval cathedrals and the Gravensteen castle congregate nicely around the central public squares - the largest car-free area in Belgium. "
You will be taken to world-recognized landmarks and the hidden corners of Ghent. Added to your historic tour will be ample opportunities to experience local tastes and culture.
Some of the Ghent landmarks:
The Ghent Altar Piece in the Cathedral
The Castle of the Counts
The medieval port & its amazing guild halls
The medieval butcher's hall presenting local flavors & beers
