Our day in Ghent begins with a private boat “taxi” and where we will explore the Historical Medieval City Center via the waterways. Afterward, you are free to explore the city and festival at your leisure and discover the beautiful buildings and monuments, all with their own story to tell. A 1000-year-old fortress, three medieval towers and the most beautiful double row of houses in Europe bank the river’s edge, all within walking distance of one another.
