Itinerary Details

This is a typical itinerary for this product

Pass By: Vrijdagmarkt

We start this cycling food tour in Ghent at the Artevelde statue at Friday Market. This is a historical square with interesting houses and some cool facts. After a brief introduction and information about what to expect, we explore the square and the surrounding streets on a small walking tour. Our first taster can exist of beef stew and fries, chocolate, vegan cheese and muffins and the very best of Belgian chocolate. Please note that both this itinerary as well as the suggested tasters are examples only. We adjust ourselves to the partners we work with and when they are closed on the day that you visit, we choose a different one, just so you know. When you book, we will let you know what you can expect, but we also want to surprise you!

Pass By: Gravensteen

Following the discovery of the Friday Market and surroundings, your guide will take you to another highlight of our city - the Castle of the Counts (Gravensteen). This is a medieval castle with a lot of stories to tell. Your guide will take you to the surrounding areas as well. For instance, Saint Veerle Square. In this area, the food and drink taster examples are "real" Belgian waffles, chocolate, cheese, wine and beer, Ghent ham (Ghanda ham). Very mouthwatering, isn't it? Be surprised about what you are getting!

Pass By: Graslei and Korenlei

From the Castle of the Counts, get yourself to the very heart of Ghent's old town with your guide. Graslei and Korenlei are not to be missed areas. This was the place to be in the Middle Ages, but it is still the most popular area to hang out. Your guide will explain to you its importance and tell you some hidden secrets. There are no food and drink stops here and in this area, we pick up our bike. Please note that in certain areas you have to walk with your bike on your hand.

Pass By: DOK

From the city centre, we start the cycling part of this tour. It is the intention that you cover more areas and get an idea about the 'real' Ghent. We also visit some nice eateries and cafes that are hidden gems and that you would pass by if you did not know they existed. Are you getting curious?
