What You Can Expect

Brussels Chocolate Walking Tour and Workshop

Enjoy a chocolate workshop after your walking tour

Brussels Chocolate Walking Tour and Workshop allows you to learn how to make the real Belgian pralines yourself through a fun workshop. Orangettes, pralines, Easter eggs... The chocolates are made with real cream or alcoholic filling, they do not keep well, but then, you weren't planning on keeping them for long anyway, were you?

You will love this original and extremely delicious walking tour that looks at the authentic Brussels like no other does. You will also walk through the historic old town to Grand Place, the former market square. A short stroll away stands Manneken Pis, the iconic Brussel's statue sculpted by Jerome Duquesnoy in 1619. You'll also see Jeanneken Pis, the square of the Sablon filled with antique shops, the Royal Galleries - seat for the oldest chocolate shop Neuhaus and many more highlights.

We loved this experience and the insight we gained into what makes for great chocolate. Our guide was terrific, energetic and kept us engaged. He included some history, which helped us to understand our surroundings. It was fabulous to taste everything and go from good to outstanding, and it was especially fun to spend time making our own chocolate not nearly as easy as one might think. At each of our five stops, we were given 2 wonderful pieces each and it was a treat. I would have hoped for a slightly smaller group I think we were 19, but it turned out to be well run and lots of fun. I would definitely say this was one of our highlights.

Wonderful tour! A must-do on anyone's list! Our guide met us early in the morning and took us on a walking tour around the main area near the Grand Place. He lead us through the cobble stone streets, telling us about the history of the area, and showing us important sights. We sampled chocolates from a few shops then went to another shop to make our own. It was a wonderful experience. Will do again!

Excellent tour and one that I thoroughly recommend to everyone. You will take in a number of chocolatiers and also a learn a great deal about the history of the city. If you are lucky enough to have Naomi as your tour guide then you will be blessed with an engaging, knowledgeable and enthusiastic host.

We had an excellent time in these tour, not only we enjoyed chocolate, but we got to know a lot of Brussels history and hidden stories. Avo was an excellent guide and gave us excellent advice on chocolate and Brussels in general. Very recommended.

A great morning with a great guide by the name of 'Avo' . Not only interesting information on chocolate and chocolate making but also the history of Brussels. More than enough chocolate to taste and you get to take home what you make at the workshop. No pressure to buy. One word of caution. There is a lot of walking a lot of which is on cobbles. This means the tour is not suitable for the mobility impaired. Well worth the time and money.

An excellent tour with a friendly and knowledgeable guide. The workshop was also a lot of fun allowing us to get a little creative. The chocolate shops and chocolatiers we visited were excellent, very good quality, with descriptions about the chocolate, where it comes from and how it's made. The group we were in was small so it allowed for a bit more of a personal experience, and our guide was happy to discuss things beyond chocolate about Brussels and Belgium including pointing out good places to eat. For what was involved, the tour is definitely worth the price. We had a great morning, Thank you.
