Small-Group Food Tour in Ghent by Bike
Our cycling food tour in Ghent is unique because we offer a combination of sightseeing in and outside the city centre and some good food and drink tasters. We walk in the city centre and cycle outside to some areas that you would not reach as a tourist otherwise. Tasters are traditional Ghent and Belgian specialities, but also include some international dishes.
We support local, small businesses and get you in touch with the locals who are happy to share their story as well.
This tour shall include all your senses. See the sights and the food, feel and smell the food before you eat it and listen to your guide's stories. Our groups are small to keep it safe and to give you the best possible experience.

We start this cycling food tour in Ghent at the Artevelde statue at Friday Market. This is a historical square with interesting houses and some cool facts. After a brief introduction and information about what to expect, we explore the square and the surrounding streets on a small walking tour.
Our first taster can exist of beef stew and fries, chocolate, vegan cheese and muffins and the very best of Belgian chocolate.
Please note that both this itinerary as well as the suggested tasters are examples only. We adjust ourselves to the partners we work with and when they are closed on the day that you visit, we choose a different one, just so you know.

Following the discovery of the Friday Market and surroundings, your guide will take you to another highlight of our city - the Castle of the Counts (Gravensteen). This is a medieval castle with a lot of stories to tell. Your guide will take you to the surrounding areas as well. For instance, Saint Veerle Square. In this area, the food and drink taster examples are "real" Belgian waffles, chocolate, cheese, wine and beer, Ghent ham (Ghanda ham).
