Our tour guide, Mary, was fantastic! She was warm, engaging, had a great sense of humor, and she knew so much about the city of Brussels and the chocolate history! This is an expensive tour, sure, but you get your money's worth in samples at all the exquisite local treasures along the way. This was definitely one of my favorite parts about my trip to Belgium, and I'd recommend it for any chocolate lover! And if you get Mary as your tour guide, all the better!
This tour was Amazing I learn a lot about chocolate, great experience and great tour guid
Excellent experience, I wish I could remember the guide's name, she had a French accent and knew her way around chocolates. She also made sure to accommodate my dietary restrictions. She was informative and this was the best tour from our trip!
Super super trip - so glad we took this tour! A total insider viewpoint! I'm sure we would not have been able to find most of the gems on our own! Our guide was fantastic and the workshop was phenomenal!
A bit pricey but worth every penny! Mary was the perfect tourist guide with all her city knowledge, chocolate expertise and french humor!
This was an amazing tour and workshop. The guide was extremely knowledgeable about Brussels' history, which was unexpected surprise. The tour of the chocolates shops and tastings was very informative and delicious. The workshop was also excellent. We made a lot of chocolate and viewed a video on the history of chocolate. The workshop instructor was very knowledgeable and encouraging. The workshop setting was very beautiful and very welcoming.
Mary was wonderful!!! The hands-on class was super fun!!! The chocolate samples were yummy!!! Thank you for a great morning!!!
Really enjoyed this tour. My husband isn't a huge chocolate fan, but he was won over too. Tasted some amazing chocolate and learned why it was amazing. We also loved making our own chocolate. Highly recommend!
What a great way to explore Brussels - through its chocolate! This was a most enjoyable tour of some of the most renowned chocolate shops led by a very enthusiastic and knowledgeable tour guide. Mary was absolutely wonderful and made the tour so interesting. The highlight was the chocolate workshop where we got a chance to participate in the candy making process.
I really recommend this tour!! The tour guide, Marie, was very friendly and such a informative person not only in chocolate, but also a lot of things in Brussels ( I was interested in the beer part personally ) , so we got a lot of information about the amazing city as well!! During the tour, we went to a lot of fancy and tasty chocolate shops where you can get free tastings:) Marie was very enthusiastic about teaching us how chocolate is made and what kind of chocolate we were tasting. I had never tasted so many good different chocolates from so many different shops, and now I can hardly eat any chocolate from the supermarket:P And the workshop was so much fun as well! Learning some techniques and making your own chocolate dipped me into the chocolate world fully! This tour made me really feel grateful for visiting Belgium:)
The class where we made our own chocolates was the best. We loved the fact that our tour guide was very knowledgeable and combined history and local color with the information about chocolate. Highly recommended.
our guide was excellent. she was very knowledgable and answered all of our questions. Mary explain the history of Belgium chocolates and answered all of our questions. I would definitely recommend this trip to anybody looking to get to know about Belgium chocolates
This was an outstanding tour. And while it was fun to visit some lesser-known chocolate stores in Brussels, the best part was the hands-on "play with chocolate" workshop. We went to what looked like an apartment that has been turn into a chocolate workshop, where we had melted chocolate and a selection of dried fruits, nuts, candied fruit peels, spices, salt, etc. We made our own confections -- chocolate shapes which we could top with the spices, things to dip and coat in chocolate, whatever we wanted. We left the items cooling, and someone delivered them to us at the end of the tour! Very fun, and it encouraged me to try this again when I get home.
So glad I did this the morning I arrived in Brussels. Not only did we tour chocolate shops, our guide pointed out major sights and good restaurants. I took his recommendations after the tour and went back to many areas of the city to explore further. I like the way the tour was organized, from least expensive chocolate and ending at the most expensive. We got to choose the chocolate we wanted to taste at each stop. Very personalized. The workshop was fun...using melted dark chocolate and a dozen different toppings to create our own flavors. At the end of the tour, our homemade chocolates arrived in a pretty cellophane bag ready for us to take home. Just wonderful...a must do if you like chocolate!
