The boat trip has nothing special and it’s better to walk around the water to enjoy the view better anytime

We would highly recommend this tour of The Canals of Ghent. You will passby magnificent architecture, unsurprisingly similar to that of Amsterdam, seeing as Belgium use to form part of the Netherlands. Our boat tour was arranged by APT as part of their bus trip...More

The only way to really appreciate the architecture of this beautiful city. Cruise along the canals past former merchants houses and warehouses. One hour trips ideal - frequent departures and excellent value. An experience not to be missed. If you visit Ghent for the day...More

I'm usually a bit skeptical of boat tours... But this was the best 7euro you can spend in the city. It was a really interesting and fun 40mins, and great for getting your bearings and taking photos.

Absolutely necessary to do a boat trip while in Gent as you can see much more detail from the canal. We had an enjoyable 40 minute ride for 7.50 Eur a person . You can also pay by card.
