Unfortunately, we were there on Sunday during Mass and therefore unable to see the Triptych in Ghent. Otherwise, a wonderful day. Highly recommend the canal cruise.

Our tour guide Lucia was amazing!! She speaks really well in english and have a great sense of humor, which kept us entertained throughout the trip. She make sure we got all the point of interest / attractions covered and shared with us the local culture and history without having to read off a book, which would be really boring. Overall experience of the trip is wonderful and it's all possible because of our excellent tour guide Lucia!
