What to Expect

Your day trip begins with pickup from your Brussels accommodation, from which you’ll embark on a journey through the Belgian countryside to Ghent, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

On arrival in Ghent, you’ll visit St. Bavo Cathedral (Sint-Baafskathedraal), home to the world-famous Mystic Lamb painting, and take a guided walking tour of Ghent’s churches and castles.

It was half and half. In each city we started on full tour. Then after an hour they let you roam for an hour or stay with the tour guide for the next hour.
