Awesome tour with a guide who was truly passionate about chocolate, food and wine. Walked around the best chocolate making stores. Then was taken back to a studio where we all put on aprons and made chocolate pralines. Learned about the origins of chocolate, ending in how it makes its way to Brussels.
I mentioned beer too, which the guide kindly showed me the best places on the way (without detracting from chocolate too much).
Do it on your first day, then you will know were to go, what to see and where to eat, this was incredible, our guide was outstanding, we felt like we knew Brussels history backwards once we had finished.
Well worth every cent.walk all over larger tours.
This was the perfect 'first activity' in Brussels. Our guide combined a bit of a history walk with an explanation of chocolate in Belgium and tastings of a range of chocolate options in the city. The workshop made us realize that my husband and I are total amateurs, but it was a lot of fun. The combination of indoor and outdoor components made it great for the not-so-perfect weather we had. Definitely recommend this!
Chocolate! Chocolate! Chocolate! What is a visit to Brussels without a tour of Chocolate??? Our guide was very knowledgeable, interesting and really knew the best chocolate shops. When in Brussels, try Elisabeth Chocolatier. We were able to sample some of the best we have ever eaten! Then, we had the opportunity to make our own chocolate candies in a wonderful and fun workshop. It was a charming and particularly delicious experience!
This was a spectacular tour. We walked, we ate chocolate, we saw lots of sites, we ate chocolate, we learned some history, we made chocolate, we saw many buildings and we ate ever more chocolate and had some wine. Our tour guide was great and we had a total blast!
Took this tour with our two kids (15 and 11) and had a great time. Delicious chocolates, some interesting information, and a really fun workshop where we got to make our own chocolate items. We visited about 5 places so you get a chance to walk through quite a bit of the city which was nice too. It's a lot of walking, but we had a ball.
This tour was excellent! We were in a small group of about 12 and really enjoyed the various chocolate tastings we were able to do as well as the chance to make our own chocolates in the chocolate workshop. If you at all like chocolate this is a must!
The tour is very nice, the kids enjoyed it so much, and the tour guide is very pleasant.
Lots of fun! Lots of walking also. The guide was very nice and knowledgeable. Bathroom breaks would have been nice though..
My two friends and I had an amazing time on this tour. Our guide, Marc, was personable, honest, knowledgeable and fun. We tried wonderful chocolate, received a local's tour of the city centre and indulged in some drinks afterwards to further our discussion on Belgium. Overall, we'd recommend this tour to anyone interested (young and old) and we're lucky that it was only the 3 of us on a nice, warm Brussels day. It truly made our trip that much more enjoyable and I know we'd love to return to Brussels again. Nothing beats their hospitality, chocolate, fries or beer!
This tour was fantastic! My entire family agreed it was one of our favorites on our two week vacation. It was a great insight into fine chocolate and a great insight into the lovely city of Brussels. Our guide was fantastic. He was knowledgeable, funny and even flexible. He answered questions from my kids and he worked around problems. He is himself a master chocolatier and a native of Brussels so he gives you the best of both worlds. Understand that the tour isn't solely about chocolate - you are also getting an insiders tour of Brussels. From an explanation of the Grand Place, to a visit to a Gothic church with beautiful stained glass to a stop at the Mannekin Pis you see many of the highlights of the old Brussels center city. But you also get some inside info you'd never get on your own. For example, he led us down a narrow alley you'd never go down and pointed out a hole in the wall bar where you can order the highest rated beer in the world - The West Vleteren 12 (a trappist ale)!
I would say that if you have mobility issues this may not be the best tour for you. You walk around the city and up and down the many hills in Brussels. My kids are 9 and 11 and they loved the tour - when someone asks about our trip they start with talking about the chocolate tour. But some of the younger kids weren't as in to it.
The chocolate making workshop is now in an apartment near the city center and it was a real highlight - at the end they deliver your creations to you wrapped up. One warning - eat the chocolate covered fruit immediately or it will spoil your other beautiful creations if left in the bag with them.
You have the opportunity to buy chocolate at each of the stores. We finished at a chocolate shop called "Elisabeth". We bought a bunch of truffles from them to take with us. But my biggest sadness is that I didn't buy a lot more!
If you are on the fence about this tour, take the leap and do it. I can't imagine you will regret it.
This tour was great you get to visit some amazing chocolate places and taste their chocolate and you also get to make your own chocolate.
Our guide was very knowledge, kind and patient. I would highly recommend it.
