    Der Guide war nett und bemüht aber wir kamen uns vor wie auf einem Schulausflug mit ständigem Abfragen....wir hatten uns etwas anderes vorgestellt z.B. eine Bierempfehlung zu unserem persönlichen Geschmack [wir haben keine Ahnung von belgischen Bier und wurden immer nach unserem belgischem Lieblingbier gefragt] ein paar mehr Kneipenspiele wären auch nicht schlecht...lieber bzw. kann man selber organisieren...abhängig davon was man erwartet/will.....es gibt 3-4 Bars in Gent mit sämtlichen Biersorten (z.B. Bier Central Gent Geschmäcker werden in der Karte beschrieben)

    This was a wonderful way to start our week in Ghent. Our guide was an excellent connection to the secret and special parts of the city. Each little gem she shared on the tour inspired us to explore while exposing the unique and iconic character of a beautiful town.

    Liselot is an enthousiastic tourgide with a great knowlegde of beer. I do absoluty recommend this tour if you're visiting Ghent (tours are also available for Brugge and Brussels). I would advice you to book directly on the website of Liselot her business (beersecet.be), this will save you some money.

    Fantastic tour, great beers, great food pairings and great conversation. Very relaxed. Highly recommended.

    Belgian beer & Belgian chocolate - what's not to like? I learned a lot on this tour. Particularly the process of beer making in Belgium followed by why they'd be best paired with a certain chocolate. The guide was very knowledgeable. Was a really fun evening with our group! Would absolutely recommend.

    It was the best tour we’ve had in Belgium. Liselot was amazing with her knowledge and engagement but even better, she really seems to enjoy what she does! We love beer but learned so much more from her that we never would have learned from a cookie cutter tour. We are travel advisors and will definitely recommend this tour for our clients. Fantastic!

    Liselot is a very knowledgeable and passionate beer connoisseur and chocolate lover. She has a very in-depth knowledge of all Belgium beers and makes the history come alive - recommended!

    Simpelweg fantastisch! Liselot heeft ontzettend veel kennis van de verschillende soorten bier(stijlen) en het proces daarachter. De kennis blijft toegankelijk en interessant. Intussen krijg je ook nog kleine lekkernijen aangeboden om de smaak van het bier mee te compenseren. De sfeer is heel relaxt en achteraf krijg je, op basis van de tour, een persoonlijke aanbeveling voor eventuele biertjes die bij jou passen. Ik raad deze tour eenieder aan, met name studenten!

    Leuk, spontaan en met oog voor smaken van elke deelnemer. De manier van uitleg geeft een informele invulling aan de setting.

    Wat een leuke tour! Onze gids Lieselot vertelde met passie over de bieren en legde alles goed uit! Wij hebben het erg naar ons zin gehad. Ook keek Lieselot echt naar ons smaakprofiel en zocht biertjes uit die daar bij paste en die we ook nog niet hadden gedronken. Heel erg leuk gedaan, zeker een aanrader!
