We took a day trip from Bruges to Ghent. For a variety of reasons, we were exhausted by the time we got to this tour, so I realize that may color how we felt about the tour. When we approached, no one asked us for a ticket (we had prepaid) - just whether we wanted the covered

A lovely way to see the city from a different view point. Great length of time - with options for covered or uncovered depending on the weather. Interesting information, though not in depth history - just explaining what each building was. An excellent feature is that it is a

Our tourguide was very nice and caring. She taught us a lot on the way around Ghent. Unfortunately it was hard listening to her, as the boat seemed to be old and the speakers were really bad. Apart from that, it was a great tour!

Covered boat trip
With the weather not cooperating, using the covered boat option was ideal. Ticket prices are very reasonable.
