More about this tour

A visit of the sea port of Ghent is always an exciting experience, but it is even more special with a guide. You will enjoy the sea port from inside and you will meet places that are normally not accessible… or even out of bounds! Sail past docks and quays where dozens of international companies have settled. See with your own eyes how inland craftsmen maneuver with grain, coal, fruit juice, cars, chemicals, steel wood, oil products and building material. Admire the gigantic grain silos and the quays where cargo is transshipped from one vessel to another. You will not know where to look first!
