Belgium is known for its beer and I now know why. During this tour, we tasted 8 different beers that were all delicious. Visiting the local bars was an added bonus as you got to experience some of the local charm of Brussels while tasting some very good beer. During the following days of my stay in Brussels, I went back to a couple of the bars and ordered some of the beers from the tour. The tour guide Stefan was very knowledgeable about beer and about the local scene. He was able to give some suggestions for good restaurants as well as caution about the bad ones. The tour group was 16 people, but I went by myself...would have been even better if I was with my wife or with friends, but I still had a great time and enjoyed meeting the rest of the folks on the tour. Highly recommend this if you're in Brussels.
This tour was the highlight of the few days we spent in Belgium. Not only was the beer delicious, but having the chance to taste different styles from small production breweries that aren't readily available to the average consumer (even in Brussels) was great. Our guide was friendly, knowledgeable, and had a dry sense of humor that made for a very entertaining trip. He also gave us good pointers on other beers and bars to track down once the tour was over. We did the Chocolate Tour with Global Enterprises (and the same tour guide) as well and gave that five starts but between the two of these we'd give the beer tour a slight edge. If you like beer (or even if you don't love it but are open to trying some very different styles than ones you usually get in the states) definitely do this!
This was a wonderful experience. Oug guide, Marc, was knowledgeable and interesting. We got to taste 8 differenct Belgian beers, some very hard to find. We visited a few historical bars but also a private residence where we tasted two of the beers. A great way to sample local beers and see a different angle of Brussels.
Belgium has great beer! This tour was really fun. We went to interesting places, learned history about the city and beer and most importantly, got to try some wonderful beer. Highly recommend!
Great tour! I have been a big fan of Belgium beers for many years and this tour delivered. We went to some unique spots, drank great beer (many of which are hard find), learned and made friends along the way. Highly recommend.
We had an absolutely great time on this tour! Our tour guide Marc started off by telling our group the history of Brussels, why they started brewing beer (the water was bad), showed us some of the local sights. We sampled a couple of beers at each stop, and some beers were paired w/ food. We met people from all over the world. At the end of the tour everyone wanted to keep going so Marc, our guide, brought us to one of his favorite local pubs. We heard during the tour that many people have have repeated the tour more than once because it was so enjoyable. I must say, given the chance we would definitely do the tour again!
Fantastic tour!! Went solo but had an absolute blast. Tour guide was funny and knowledgeable, saw some great bars but most importantly drank some of the best beer I've ever had the pleasure of trying. Highly recommend this tour!
This tour was great! Marc, the owner of the company, was very entertaining and really knew his stuff. He included some history in the tour and a slight detour to the top deck of a parking garage for a great view of the entire city of Brussels--who would've thought?! The food pairings with the beers were outstanding. All in all, a great sampling of a wide variety of Belgian beers and a really fun way to spend an afternoon (and evening if you choose to continue with the "after tour").
What a great way to enjoy good Belgian beer and get a tour of unique parts of the city that are not part of the normal tourist route. We sample some really unique tastes. I never imagined beer going well with chocolate! Marc was a great host. I highly recommend this tour.
We did a day trip from Paris to take this tour. Marc, our tour guide, was absolutely fantastic. Not only did we get to taste great beer but we also got a historical tour of Brussels. An absolute must!
This was a great experience. I learned a lot about the different type of beers and had a great time! I recommend this experience without reservations.
