All good things come in threes: a cycling tour, a weekend trip and an exciting tour of the city. I have made the perfect mix of these three elements for you. I personally think it is a great experience to explore a city by bike in company of a local.

Taking visitors on a tour of my city seemed the most rewarding job in the world. And after a 25-year career in various companies, I got on my bike!

I am not only a passionate cyclist but also a certified sommelier. So, I can show you the best places to wine & dine in the city. After all, Ghent is renowned for its gastronomy!

Un magnifique souvenir de la découverte de Gand au-delà des lieux les plus connus. Tim a un excellent contact et le rythme était parfait! Nous avons eu la chance de faire cette ballade un « dimanche sans voiture » ce qui a rendu l’expérience magique!

Dit was een leuke fietstocht. Zeker een aanraden! Je bezoekt historische en culturele plekken. De host was vriendelijk en wist waar hij het over had.

Tim is een erg vriendelijke host en neemt je mee naar niet allerdaagse plekjes in Gent. Je gaat in ons geval dus niet door het centrum heen, want daar komt iedereen zelf toch ook wel. Verder vallen de fietsen positief op, en dat moet je zelf maar ervaren. Wij waren met een groep van 10 personen, waaronder Nederlanders en Franstalige personen. Tim neemt een ieder serieus door in beide talen te vertellen waar we zijn, en wat het eea betekent vanuit de geschiedenis of het huidige van Gent. Veel plezier

Tim fait découvrir Gand de manière inédite. On y découvre des coins cachés et on y entend des anecdotes amusantes. Nous étions 10 amis à faire cette visite avec 3 enfants. Ce fut génial.

The day we booked for our tour it was raining, but Tim took great care of us! He had raincoats for everyone and was able to make most of our stops at a covered location. This tour was a great way to see the whole city. We were able to visit local areas and a neat food/beer hall we never would have found on our own!
