Cycling tours in Ghent

Le Grand Huit Ghent

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 "Le Grand Huit" 

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

Join us even if you are alone or in couple, every saturday at 10h30

And any day at any time you want for private tour or groups (5-12 p) If necessary, we can guide two groups.  

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

This is definitely the summer of the scooter. In Lomme for the school children who pass the Grand Huit's scooter license, at Codifis whose employees try out our scooters for a month to get to work, at the Joinville le Pont summer party and of course during our famous guided tours of Lille and the historic heart of Paris.

Eight brand new crazy bikes have joined Le Grand Huit this 1st of may. Weird, rare, unknown, for some of them we don't even have found a name, yet. But this one is the Monster, presented by our brand new guide Elisa. Will she success on the bike ?? Welcome Elisa !
