This was a great tour combining a historical walking overview of the city and chocolate! We enjoyed learning about the city and had chocolate tastings throughout the walk. Our host, Mark, was very knowledgeable and quite the chocolate connosseur himself. We were taken to a private apartment where we met Eva, our chocolate instructor. We made our own chocolate creations while learning of the history of chocolate and the important role Brussels plays in the chocolate industry. Very enjoyable tour. There is quite a bit of walking on uneven pavement and many stairs, so it is not a tour for anyone who is physically impaired.
Fantastic! My only regret was doing this tour towards the end of our stay instead of the beginning. A great combination of walking, history, culture and of course chocolate!
Belgium and particularly Brussels is the "Home of Chocolate" and as chocoholics we were interested in getting the history and "flavor" of the region. This short (4 hour) tour was the best. It provided great insight to to the history of chocolate in general and the Belgium chocolate culture from it's beginnings. There is at least 1 chocolate shop in every block of Brussels from the well known to obscure. We were introduced to the full range from in creditably expensive to reasonable, and two that we will go back to when we return. For those that like chocolate this tour is highly recommended. Even if you don't necessarily like chocolate the tour is worth the time, the guide provided many interesting facts and observations Brussels along the way.
Totally loved this tour - was a lot more than I expected; a mix of great chocolate and an amazing history lesson at the same time! Learned more about Brussels than I expected and got to taste some chocolate I never would have otherwise had the chance to or even thought of. Great tips for where to go/where not to go for not only chocolate, but also museums, bars, and restaurants. Making our own chocolate and watching the chocolatier make some was really neat, definitely a unique experience you wouldn't get otherwise. Highly recommended.
Awesome tour. Made lots of huge chocolates which I gave away to a couple of girls in a bar. The guide and instructor were excellent.
Great tour with a good mix of chocolate tasting in a variety of places, chocolate making and interesting facts and tour of Brussels
A spectacular way to spend a Sunday morning in Brussels. My wife and I did this with our 8 and 12-year-old. We got a bit of history about the city and the country, as well as history of chocolate making, and a bit of beer knowledge as well. Stayed away from the mass-market chocolate makers, and the chocolate workshop was a lot of fun. It even kept the kids interested although I think our youngest still prefers Cadbury's! Eating our own creations was a great way to round off the day. Highly recommended.
My wife and I are from Silicon Valley and we thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Our guide was **really** knowledgeable about chocolate and took us to several chocolatiers we would never have visited on our own. So we explored high end-chocolate made from Madagascar cocoa beans as well as chocolate made with beans from other countries. And we could taste the differences; one could compare it to wine tasting were there are different flavors on the palette and different finishes. As a bonus, since the tour started 1h before the chocolate shops opened, he took us around the city center pointing out good restaurants and pubs (including the oldest pub in Brussels) and gave us some of the city's history. Overall, one of the best parts of our visit to Brussels.
Absoutely excellent tour, visiting some of the brilliant chocolate shops and tasting some of the finest chocolates that we have ever eaten. Thank you Mark for doing such an awesome job as our tour guide. Highly recommended.
Brilliant tour, very enjoyable experience and chocolate heaven, with a knowledgeable and friendly guide. what more do you need!!!!
Mark the tour guide was fantastic,
From start to finish he kept the whole group engaged with the history of the city, must visit places for the food and beer connouiseur and of course the chocolate. We had three children on the tour aged 7, 9 and 15 and they loved it from start to finish. The only disappointing aspect was that we did not book onto the other tours such as Marks food and wine tour. Marks tours are a must do in Brussels!
An absolute highlight of our trip. Our guide was both knowledgeable and funny. We really feel we learned a lot about the history and making of chocolate, and we definitely now have our favorites. The workshop was most enjoyable! We walked away very happy and chocolate satisfied people. But we shall never be happy with Hershey's again!
