Custom tours


‘CUSTOMISATION’ means full flexibility for you. You always choose from following items


Choose a custom VIP-package for up to two persons. Or pick my special custom private tour for groups between 8 and 22 persons.


1 hour, 1.5 hour, 2 hours, 2.5 hours, 3 hours, 4 hours, 5 hours,…


I can pick you up anywhere in the city centre. On top of that, your tour starts at the first tour stop, not at the meeting point. From your final stop, I will personally guide you to your next appointment in the city centre.

4. your PACE and the total DISTANCE covered

Would you like less walking and more talking or the other way round? Are you into slow walking, taking many pictures or more into surprising in depth insights? You choose.

5. your specific entertainment based upon your wishes, interests, background and nationality:

Ghent has many options to keep you entertained. Let me immerse you in Ghent’s glory days through vivid stories with real visual links like a torch extinguisher, a cross shaped window or a weather vane in the form of a caravelle. These links are time machines to open your mind’s eye and your imagination.

6. your TOUR CONTENT and the number of TOUR STOPS. Choose what you really want to see and experience: you have DOZENS OF OPTIONS.
