What you'll do

On a two hour walking tour we'll discover the city center of Ghent. We will walk by some of the highlights of the old part of the city such as the cathedral, squares, old harbour and castle but we'll also wander a little further afield towards lesser known places, shops and cool street art.
In winter, when it is dark, we focus on the nicely lit up places and stop halfway to warm up and have a drink.
Other things to note
We'll be out for a few hours so bring clothing appropriate to the weather (prediction). There are plenty of bathrooms and places to rest if needed.

Being an avid world traveler I would like to offer travellers visiting Ghent to get to know the city from a local's perspective. I have been living in Ghent for more than 15 years and am a certified city guide. I can offer classic historical tours but do also like to show the 'hard to find' places that only locals know (and even some locals don't know). We have great spots, beautiful views, amazing shops and delicious snacks to discover.

Where you'll be

From the old part of town we'll walk to cool and trendy lesser known places. We may enter the cathedral for a sneak peak and some amazing shops if open. Most of the tour however is outside. The total walking distance is about 5 kms.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 from 25 reviews.

Guide originale plus que recommandable si vous voulez passez un moment unique sur les pas des sentiers battus à Gand... Vous y découvrirez des endroits à côté desquels vous serez très probablement passer ! Des anecdotes culturelles et une visite privatisée firent notre bonheur tout au long de cette balade... Les petits plus : visite en français juste pour nous et Heidi n'a pas lésiné sur le temps et fut attentive à toutes nos questions ! À recommander chaudement !

Fijne ervaring om met Heidi de stad te verkennen! Hoewel we Gent al kenden, kon ze ons toch nog veel extra informatie geven.

Heidi is very knowledgeable about the city and showed us some of the more unique aspects of Ghent that I wouldn’t have found alone. She was a terrific tour guide!

Very Nice tour with Heidi, who knows extremely well the town and every details. Special Thanks for the discovery of street art murals and new areas. And for the little sweety drink at the end (!)

Really interesting city-walk through Ghent from a local. Me and my mum really enjoyed this guided tour in german. Heidi contacted me beforehand to give details about where to meet. We saw some secret spots and it was definitely not one of the typical city-walk touristic stuff, which I really appreciated. We got some information about the history of Ghent, art, architecture and much more. There was also enough time for my mum to take pictures :) All in all, thanks a lot for guiding us. I would recommend Heidis tour to couples, families with kids and groups. Thanks a lot ;)
