with Octavian S.

Ghent is a rebel.
Ghent is a party.
Ghent is an architectural masterpiece.

Lonely Planet has called Gent (Ghent) “Europe’s best kept secret”, a must see destination for 2011.

National Geographic Traveler Magazine has listed the city as the most authentic historic city.

This is the city I would like to present to you!

My city, unlike other historical cities, has retained the character of a functioning city rather than an open-air museum. It's full of life and beauty with a vast heritage. It's authentic both in history as in modern life.

In my and others opinion it's 'Belgiums capital of creativity' and 'the hipster capital': full of art, fine food, the best beers and bicycles!

Join the tour and make the city fit YOUR interests:
• art: SMAK museum, The Ghent Altarpiece, Design museum,...
• beer tastings, brewery visits and pub crawling
• boat trips on the Leie
• local food tips
• sightseeing: all historic buildings (The Three Towers: Belfry, Saint Bavo Cathedral and Saint Nicholas' Church, Gravensteen but also the newer buildings such as the Vooruit, Bond Moyson building)
• shopping with my girlfriend
• sports: biking or running through beautiful green zones and historic parts
• ...

Depending on your time and interests, I will adapt the tour to fit you: "No boring walks guarantee!"

I'm a product of Ghent, having studied there for more than 10 years and now living in the city. Of course, I'm not just a product, I also make things: I'm an entrepreneur working on Survey Anyplace which is a tool that provides mobile feedback. I love traveling and discovering new things, going out and of course sharing all those experiences with other people. I'm very geeky about facts and since young I've been reading a lot of things regarding history and computers, which together with sports are my passions. I love soccer, running and playing Lacrosse. I even started the Lacrosse team in Ghent together with my friends! I would love to show you all the best and authentic places of Ghent and you will understand why National Geographic dubbed it "the most authentic city in the world". Full profile Leave a Review
