Excellent tour! Wim is very nice and super knowledgeable - we really enjoyed the tour and we learnt a lot about this amazing city. Chocolate was delicious and we even stopped for coffee in a very nice, traditional coffeehouse. Absolutely recommended!

Wim weet niet alleen alles van Gent, maar ook van de algemene geschiedenis van de gehele lage landen. Zijn tour belicht niet alleen de touristische hoogtepunten, maar laat ook de gemeenschapszin van Gent zien. Dankzij Wims tour weten wij nu dat verschillende kunstenaars en burgerplatformen er gezamenlijk zorg voor dragen dat Gent écht een magisch-realistische stad is, met meer kastelen dan je denkt, wandelende bomen, en een wel heel bijzonder onthaal voor pasgeboren kinderen. Echt een enorme aanrader!
