Trotz schlechten Wetters (Regen und kalter Wind) war die Führung ein schönes Erlebni, das uns Gent näher gebracht hat. Der Führer war ein echter Profi, der auch die relativ große Gruppe gut steuerte und mit gut verständlicher kräftiger Stimme in sehr gutem Englisch seine mit vielen netten Anekdoten gewürzten Informationen übermittelte. Ganz kleine Kritik: ein wenig langsamer sprechen und dafür ruhig auf etwas Information verzichten.

Katia was an informed and helpful tour guide who made my tour very enjoyable. Her knowledge is encyclopedic but it's all done in a very chatty way. Not too much walking but just enough to see all the sights. excellent tour.

A walk like this gives you an overview and feeling about the city. In such a way that you can do more targeted visits afterwards.
