About Charlie

THE GHENT EXPERIENCE! Fun & interactive city tours, with local guides. 

Charlie Tours is a Ghent Guides Association, founded in 2018 by Ghent-born Nick Vandecasteele. He has many years of experience as a city guide, provides weekly Belgian Beer Tasting in the Uppelink Hostel & is former (co-)owner of restoBAR Charlie.

The name 'Charlie' refers to the most famous and notorious of the locals, namely Emperor Charles V. He was born in Ghent in the year 1500 and became known as the ruler of the Habsburg empire. He became infamous, mercilessly punishing the locals for their disobedience ... But uh, more about this during the tour!

Individual visitors can join the 'Chocolate Tour': a chocoholics dream, coming true every Friday & Saturday at 4pm (on a tour with indiviual registration).

Groups of friends, families, companies but also individual visitors can choose between our 'Thematic Private Tours'. Such as the 'Old Ghent Tour', the 'True or False Tour' (a fun & interactive quiztour), and the 'Chocolate & Beer Tour', that covers the best that Belgium has to offer!

Would you like to combine the tour with a lunch, beer tasting or chocolate workshop? Then 'Create your own Tour'! We'll put together a tour that fully meets your need: the length AND the content.
