This was a great tour! Not only did we learn about chocolate we got a history of the city while we walked to each chocolate shop. Even though the price is high, the amount you learn and EAT is well worth the money! Mark is a great tour guide and made every story interesting. I would definitly reccommend this tour to anyone visiting Brussels.
I booked this tour after having a great time on the tapas tour in Madrid that I booked through Viator. However this one was the exact opposite. First, we were in a group of all German speaking women and we were the only two that spoke english, making us feel very isolated on the tour. Second, you would think this tour would be full of eating. Wrong! The tour guide however did some personal food shopping instead while we watched and ate nothing. Then just when we see we are going to finally eat some tapas, we go to a chain restaurant. For the expensive price of this tour, you eat an extremely small amount and don't learn anything about tapas or places to go on your own. Better off buying a book and using that. Group was too large also. Almost 20 people!
This tour was a disaster. First, we were never picked up by the bus and instead had to find our own way on the public bus to the Alhambra. We were constantly calling the number provided by Viator only to get " this number is not in service" messages. Once up there, we could not locate the tour in the designated meeting place and were put on another tour with a guide who spoke very fast and was boring. They took our vouchers which left us with nothing to show for the arab baths. Once we got ourselves to the arab baths, no help to the tour, they were the high point of the day. My recommendation, don't do this tour just book them in advance on your own. Its cheaper and less stressful. Arab baths are definitely worth it.
