Ghent Guides and iTours have joined forces to offer group packages (Ghent Guides) and individual packages (iTours).
A few examples, you ask? A traditional city tour, a fascinating thematic walk, a relaxing boat ride, an interesting museum visit, etc. You can book a private tour or join a group.
Organised walking tours
Why not join an organised walking tour? The ‘Ghent History Tour’ takes you on a fascinating tour of the historical city centre. On weekends it includes a visit to St Bavo’s Cathedral and on weekdays a visit to the Town Hall.

Retrace Charles V’s steps at Prinsenhof, tour the Port of Ghent or discover Ghent’s most powerful women… You name it, we’ve got it! Ghent Guides and iTours offer the best combination of historical information and anecdotes – fascinating and surprising. There is no better way to discover this beautiful city in Dutch, French, German, English, Italian, Spanish, Russian and Portuguese. There’s even a tour in Ghent dialect, without subtitles. That’s right, all the juicy gossip in the local tongue – a must for locals and curious outsiders!
Extra: a tram from 1971! An old PCC tram was given a full makeover to host an original tour for groups of 20 to 60 persons. This unforgettable ride combined with a bout tour, a walk and a museum visit is available in two packages. Bookings via Gent Watertoerist only.
