This was fantastic! Each stop was carefully selected and we definitely felt like we were getting the underground beer experience. We loved this!
Our tour was lead by Marc and Marie - it was the highlight of our trip. Our group was quite large and were a fantastic, friendly bunch to spend the day with. We learnt a lot, got our bearings around Brussels and had a great time with everyone. We even went "off-piste" after the tour with the remaining crowd (after being tipped off on where to get the best Frites in town). We enjoyed all of the beers. We wouldn't hesitate to do the tour again - but maybe would remember to pack the Alka Seltzers for the day after next time ;)
Unfortunately we didn't make it, our fault. I'm sure it would have been brilliant, Brussels itself is fab. Perhaps omit this from the reviews as it doesn't reflect viator at all.
The guide was knowledgable and fun to drink with. It was a truly amazing tour. I suggest eating more throughout the tour because I was pretty tipsy at the end and I like to drink beer quite a bit! Awesome tour do it for sure!
Jan does an awesome job presenting the various beers, mixing in a little history about Brussels, and keeping it light and entertaining. I read many of the reviews, agreed with the positive responses, and the tour delivered the goods. Highly recommend and would do it again next time I'm in Brussels. The tour took almost ~4 hours but was never boring. A+++.
This beer tour was excellent. The guide was a very charismatic and knowledgeable guy, we all had a great time visiting different bars and trying different beers with him. Highly recommend this tour.
Awesome! Went to Brussels specifically for this tour, and learned quite a bit about Belgian beers! We tried beers I'd never heard of. Really fun with a great guide!
Our tour guide (Jan) was amazing, he was very knowledgeable and laid back. I learn't a lot about beer and this was defiantly the highlight of our trip to Brussels. Would highly recommend this tour, especially if you love beer!
Marc was fantastic!! I have lived in brussels for over a year and learned more from this tour than ever! The beer was delicious and venue choices were perfect! Definitely worth the cost!!
This was a great tour. Our tour guide was fun and taught us a lot about the beers we drank. He was also really laid back, and hung out with us to drink for over an hour after the official tour ended. Definitely worth doing if you're a beer lover!
It was our first time in Brussels so we thought...why not take a beer tour?! We were not disappointed! Stephan was an awesome guide and extremely knowledgeable - recommend him as a tour guide to anyone. The tour took us to 5 pubs and we tasted 8 beers. Not all the beers will find their way into my home, but all were memorable. The group we were in all got along and had a great time together! In fact, most of us went to dinner together afterwards...to one of the restaraunts Stephan recommended (Scheltema). Highly recommend this tour to anyone in Brussels who enjoys real beer.
I booked the beer tour as an anniversary present for my husband. I'm not a big fan of beer and am more of a wine drinker so was not expecting to enjoy it as much as I did. The tour was really interesting and Jan the guide was fab! We would highly recommend, it's great fun!
This was a great tour - you get to try several fantastic beers, learn some beer history, and afterwards you end with with 20+ new drinking buddies! I highly recommend this tour.
We highly recommend your beer tour of Brussels. Our host, Stephen was the high light of our tour. Not only was he knowledgeable but humorous as well. It was one of the most enjoyable tours we have ever taken and I got to drink beer too.
Nancy and Ron
Very informative and fun. By the end, the mixed group was interacting like a reunion of best friends.
Stephan was AMAZING, this was by far on of the favorites my husband and I came home gushing about!!! We stopped at 4-5 places and sampled 8 different beers. This really is a must do when you are in Brussels, some of the places we went to we never would have found or thought of heading that way.
Tour is well worth cost. Guide knowledgeable and funny. Beer was great and got to drink in bars that I would not have found without this tour. Highly enjoyable experience.
Great tour, guide very knowledgable and fun.. I highly recommend it
We had a grand time. Our guide was knowledgeable, friendly and had a great sense of humor. Of course our group loosened up as the evening progressed and we eventually continued the night out long after the tour had concluded. His information was not limited to beer but gave us insights and history of Brussels as well that really enriched the evening. I have since rewarded myself with several of the beers we tried upon my return to the U.S. I would do it all over again.
We were very impressed with the quality of this tour. The guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining and the tour was really well organised. We had a great time! I would recommend to anyone visiting Brussels.
Great beers, wonderful bars and a really eclectic and fun guide. I taught beer brewing for 5 years at a local community college, so I tested the knowledge of the guide a bit...he passed! The beers were a good selection of types and style. Really though, the guide made the trip with some history lessons and personal observations of beer, Brussels and life. We had an interesting mix of participants which helped keep things rolling also.
This was one of the best tours we have ever taken with Viator! Of course, you must like to drink beer. If you are just interested in the history and want to taste a couple, go to the Beer Museum on Grand Place. Our guide, Jan, was amazing! Very knowledgeable and fun. You will go to several locations and try preselected beers, sometimes with food. On the tour, you will get 8. I hated a couple, enjoyed most, and loved a few! You will get to learn about some of the history of Brussels, not related to beer, and some things you should know about beer if you are going to go drinking in Brussels. After the tour, most of the group went to one more place and had another special beer that was great fun. WARNING: You will feel it! The beer is much stronger than you might be used to! My suggestion is to never have more than 1 glass, even if you really like it and to not drink the stuff you don't like. Really great tour!
