Your walking tour starts at the center of the medieval city of Ghent, at St. Michaels Bridge, with its view of Ghent's three glorious medieval steeples. Your guide will lead you to the pontoon where you'll board a canal boat for a fun and thorough exploration of the city. As you cruise through the historic city, see highlights such as the impressive castle of the counts, the Fish Market, 13th century monasteries and the ancient port of Ghent along with its mercantile houses.
Once your canal cruise ends, you'll have free time to independently explore this gracious city. You may choose to enjoy a locally brewed beer in one of the stylish bars, or maybe a coffee in one of the waffle houses. Strolling along the narrow streets, many of which are pedestrian, you'll be enthralled by the unique architecture, while the shops will tempt you with their fine chocolates, Flemish lace and other locally-crafted wares.
Lastly, you will enjoy your second canal boat cruise back to the motorcoach for the journey through more enchanting Flemish countryside, and on to the port at Zeebrugge.
