Below is a video of a boat tour in Ghent. Many companies offer river cruises in the city, and they are a great way to learn about the history of Ghent.
Tour guides tell visitors about the origins of the city, its heyday as a center of commerce and trade, and its modern highlights. English-speaking guides are available, so language is not an issue.
Most boat tours last around an hour, and take passengers throughout the canals and waterways of the city. Bridges can be low, so watch your head!
The boat tour in the video was taken with a company called De Bootjes van Gent.
