train, guided tour, or metro for exploring Belgium?

Jump to last reply

My wife and i will be traveling to Europe in March. We'll have two days in Belgium. Day one will be spent in Brussels (which is where our hotel will be). Day two i was hoping to see Ghent and Antwerp. On a map these cities form a triangle which is great. My question is what you would recommend as far as exploring those two areas? At first it appeared a viator guided tour would be the best way to go but many of the reviews complained that 1. the guide wasn't efficient and 2. the tour was very rushed along with other assorted gripes. I then looked at car rental rates which looked pretty expensive for 24 hour rental ($150USD). I then considered maybe taking a 20 min train ride between the cities which appeared to be the cheapest but wondered how easy it would be to explore the usual tourist areas (busses, trams, subway, etc)

any and all feedback or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
