About Charlie

Charlie Tours is a top Ghent guide organization, founded by Ghent-born Nick Vandecasteele:

"For four years I co-owned, with great enthusiasm, a local pub - restoBAR Charlie - at the Patershol, the oldest neighbourhood in the city. A (night)life full of fun & rock 'n roll! My passion for Ghent and for entertaining people, inspired me to start to work as a city guide as well. And I loved it so much that by the end of 2017, I decided to close the doors of restoBAR Charlie for good, to become a fulltime guide in Ghent: 'Charlie Tours' was born! As a proud local I consider it an absolute privilege to guide visitors around my beautiful Ghent, in a fun & interactive way, together with my great team of local guides. Our customers gave us excellent reviews on Google & come and enjoy the Ghent Experience together with Charlie on one of our top-rated tours!"

Absolutely loved the tour! Our tour guide was very well spoken, passionate about the city and with a good sense of humor. Definitely will join again next time I'm there. Big thumbs up!!!!
Petra Anatolevna - Moscow, Russia
We had a great guide! Funny, knowledgeable, synthetic and pleasant to talk to. Strongly recommended
Stan Livingston - San Diego, U.S.A.
We had a fantastic time and tasted some lovely chocolates on the way. It was a nice mix of chocolate tasting (with a bit of history) and other interesting facts about the city. Nick is a born natural tour guide and knows so much about his home city.
Jim B. - St. Albans, U.K.
Our family of four thoroughly enjoyed Nick’s chocolate tour yesterday. We learned all about the intriguing history of the chocolate business in Ghent as well as the history of Ghent in general. The samples during the tour were delicious!
