Overview

In Ghent, beer brewing went hand in hand with religious life. Discover Ghent and its incredibly surprising history during a three-hour beer walk and beer tasting with guide through the city. Five beer tasting sessions and an official BeerWalk glass are included in the price. Anyone who takes part can decide, at any time during the BeerWalk tour, to have one or more beer tastings replaced by a soda of your choice. This way anyone can enjoy the beer stories and the town visit.

Took the beerwalk as part of a stag do. Guide was excellent and it was during the festival so there was a good buzz about the city.

Myself and 5 friends had a fantastic tour which I couldn’t recommend more. Our tour guide Patrick was amazing, his passion for the history of Ghent and the beers involved has to be applauded. Thanks Patrick
