Cycling tours in Ghent

De GrAcht

To us, Charles V's native hometown is the most beautiful in Flanders. Ride along or across its legendary canals, around its mysterious neighbourhoods. Discover its surprising museums, abbeys or beguinages and its night lights.

Your guide will love showing you the sights around Ghent which is also a modern lovely and lively city with lots of young people.

The best way to visit Ghent is on a bike. There are fewer and fewer cars in the city and you will be able to see authentic neighbourhoods a bit further away than the town center. The guided tour is about 2 hours long with ten stops to learn more about the city. You will also play fun cycling games on beautifully decorated Dutch bicycles.

This tour of a new kind in Ghent appeals to everybody: families, friends or company team building groups. You won't be bored with "the GrEight" ! De GrAcht 

The meeting point is situated opposite 44-50 Huidevetterskaai in Ghent, close to the Snooker Tavern. See map.

For the best experience, we accept groups from 4 people up to 12 maximum. If need be, we can guide several groups. Tours are organized at the time that suits you by booking in advance. But you also can join our visit if you are alone or in couple, every saturday and sunday, 10h30, also by booking in advance

Price: 22 € per person. Payment in cash directly to your guide.
