About

A port visit with Antwerp Port Tours:
an unseen perspective


Antwerp Port Tours offers lively and multimedia guidance for port visits
A passionate guide
We are mostly known for our fantastic guides. With founder Laurens at the wheel, every tour is brought with conviction and passion.
Multimedial guidance
Thanks to our own app, the live guide can support his or her story with a GPS-controlled port map and exclusive behind the scene's images, video's and interviews. Suitable for every age and audience.
Flexibele service
In the week or the weekend, during the day or evening, start at the city centre or at a location of your choice, with just 2 people or 160 at the same time: we adapt to your needs and wishes! 
Quality before quantity
We prefer short and powerful over being lengthy and focus on new insights instead of lists of data and numbers. 
With a bus or a boat?
The possibilities to visit our port with a boat are quite limited due to the many locks and bridges. If you really want to discover what it is al about, you have to travel over the roads. You can bring your car or bus, or we can arrange one for you. 
Multilingual
All our tours are available in Dutch, English, French and German. If your group speaks another language, or when there is no common language, we can arrange for a multilingual tour. During those, all guidance is provided by the iPads.

About Antwerp Port Tours


HeyHello! My name is Laurens. In the summer of 2014 I founded the company named HeyHello bvba. I did this with the specific ambition to show others the port of Antwerp in a novel way.

Starting up the multimedia concept with i.a. tablets and an app, was a calculated gamble. No where else in Europe a similar tour exists. Fortunately it's success is proven over and over again by all of the various audiences. Moreover I was in 2015 even awarded with the titel of 'Most Promising Starter' by 'De Nacht van de KMO' for the region of Flanders! 

HeyHello and Antwerp Port Tours are independent from authority and port companies. I share with you my authentic admiration and knowledge about the most widespread port in the world, with pleasure. I hope to see you soon!

Reviews & reactions


  • "I've heard nothing but laudatory comments. The timing was perfect, a very passionate and enthusiastic guide who was also an excellent driver. In a short time we have seen al lot of a world that we absolutely do not know. It's also a nice concept with the I pad. Personally, I was very touched by the positive approach, the pride with which our port is promoted. This was also quite clear from all the interviews. I find that positive message to be amazing."


    ZNA Middelheim

  • “Our department trip was excellent, despite the bad weather. Very original with those interviews on the tablet, the guide was well informed and up to date. How does he do it: explaining, driving and operating those tablets? A passionated speaker! I am certainly planning to do this port tour again with my family and friends.”

    Agency of traffic

  • “Thanks for the excellent -again- collaboration yesterday. Very positive first reactions!”


    Unitar / Cifal Antwerpen

  • “This morning we enjoyed a very nice tour through the port. Our pupils from the 7th grade had a tour with a competitor 2 years ago and told me this afternoon that this time they really enjoyed it and learned to appreciate the port. This is nice to hear for us as well and we hope we can work together with you again in the future.”

    A school from Antwerp

  • “We received very good feedback from our students. Especially about how wide the story was and how it brought forward the many aspects of the port. They were impressed as well by how much they saw during the visit. Many thanks as well for you flexibility to plan us in on short notice.”
