  • Ghent: 3-Hour Guided Urban Mountain Bike Tour

    1. Ghent: 3-Hour Guided Urban Mountain Bike Tour

    Go beyond the classic sightseeing and discover what Ghent is all about. Depart from the meeting point with a small group of no more than 10 people and your enthusiastic tour guide. A helmet is there for you to use during the tour and the drinking bottle provided is yours to keep. During the tour, your guide will surprise you with fun facts, street art and hidden spots the city has to offer. The course is off the beaten path and takes you from the city center all the way to the dynamic suburbs. The semi-pro mountain bikes make this urban adventure very comfortable! To remember the tour, take a polaroid picture to take home with you, while the other pictures taken with a Go Pro are sent to your email.

    Very interesting tour in Ghent with an eye for less touristic, but very interesting spots. Tempo is not too high, not even for a 59 year old ;)

    Ghent is a beautiful city, and Joeri, our guide, did a fantastic job showing off the city that he loves. He made great suggestions since we didn't have anything particular in mind, and went at just the right pace for our 3 hour tour. His English is perfect, and he was very thoughtful, making sure we had a great time and really enjoyed our visit. I recommend this way to do a tour, and also recommend Joeri. Thank you for a very memorable day in Ghent. We only wish we had more time!!

A brilliant way to start my morning by taking this bike tour of Ghent with Christophe! Went out on an amazing route of hidden paths and insider discoveries. I learnt a lot from Christophe who was the perfect host. It was equally enjoyable to hear the passion of this city from a local to myself (a new inhabitant) particularly after being in Covid lock down for over a year. The bikes were great and it was a really pleasurable ride which I can highly recommend!! Thanks Christophe!!

Christoph is a super guide who showed us Ghent in an original way. He drove us very safely through the many streets and neighbourhoods. He regularly stopped to explain enthusiastically and with a great dose of humour about the many street artworks and artists that Ghent is rich in. His love for Ghent was contagious and made us immediately fall in love with this beautiful city. Highly recommended!

Absolutely recommendable not only for those visiting Ghent for the first time. Although the weather was rainy, it did not stop Chris' and Levi's enthusiasm and passion for their city. Thanks a lot for the wonderful 3 hours that flew by so quickly and also for the great restaurant recommendation!

Very enthusiastic guide. Nice route. Good pace. This way you get to know the city & thoughts very well. Perfect material. Good communication & service

Very interesting tour in Ghent with an eye for less touristic, but very interesting spots. Tempo is not too high, not even for a 59 year old ;)
