    Très belle balade en bateau pour découvrir la ville . Le guide parlait aisément plusieurs langues . C’était facile à suivre et les explications en français étaient facile à comprendre et précise. On a été charmé

    It was extensive. Because all tours are multilingual depending on passengers language, the guide has to speak very fast to get done in the time allotted so, no time for questions. Still. It is an advantage to take any tour rather than book a specific time only

    C'est une façon agréable de visiter la ville. Malheureusement, les commentaires en français était minimes par rapport, et pour le peu qu'il y en avait, on ne comprenait rien du tout. Ils feraient mieux de mettre des audio guides. De plus, vous payez 9e par adulte et on vous demande via des affiches dans le bateau, de donner un pourboire en fin de trouve ça vraiment déplacé...

    We enjoyed this boat tour more than other river cruises we recently took in the Netherlands and in Germany because it was a small, but not too crowded boat, and the guide gave us fun and informative stories about the surroundings and architecture. Also, the arrival time was flexible so that was nice not to have to stress out about a specific departure time.

    Nous avons eu la chance d'être peu nombreux dans le bateau. Il faut bien choisir son créneau horaire. La visite de Gand par les canaux est vraiment très agréable. C'est la meilleure façon de découvrir la ville.

    turned up on the day and managed to get a space on the first boat out as a group of seven. only €8.50 each which was a great price for the 40 Minute tour. our Tour Guide was incredibly friendly, and told lots of interesting stories about the history of Gent along with some funny anecdotes too! the Tour Guide swapped between three different languages throughout the tour almost seamlessly which was amazing, and made everyone feel very welcome!

    Excellent views of the city and a relaxing way to do sightseeing. Our guide spoke in French, Dutch and English. The descriptions were a bit brief and delivered with little excitement. Nevertheless, well worth the time and money.

    View from boat awesome Boat captain very strong political opinions and shared them too many times - unprofessional and anti tourist guy - told us not to visit Ghent again they have too many tourist already 😔

    Dans l’ensemble c’était chouette, mais la traduction en français pas top et beaucoup plus d’explications des lieux en anglais
