This tour was Amazing I learn a lot about chocolate, great experience and great tour guid
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.
A bit pricey but worth every penny! Mary was the perfect tourist guide with all her city knowledge, chocolate expertise and french humor!
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.
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.
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:)
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!
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.
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
The Best tour of our entire trip to Dublin, London, and Belgium. Mary was fabulous!
Amazing experience, the chocolates kept getting better and better. The chocolate class was a lot of fun. Def a must do!!!
Excellent. So much fun. Went Sept 1. Our tour guide was excellent.
Not only did we learn about chocolate but the guide was very knowledgable about the city of Brussels. This tour was as much a walking tour of the old section of Brussels as it was learning about chocolate.
A lovely mix of history and chocolate, Amazing guide who could answer questions, who listened to his group and gave us an appreciation of the uniqueness of Brussels and of the history and production of chocolate.
We had a fantastic time on the chocolate tour! It was by far our favorite experience in Brussels. We learned about many good chocolate shops that we were able to revisit when purchasing souvenirs. Everything we tried was fantastic and after that we were able to avoid some of the tourist traps of chocolate shops. The walking tour was also informative, the guide pointed out a lot of sights and historical information. The "workshop" portion was fine, nothing special, but it was timed nicely to provide a rest in the middle of the tour and we enjoyed eating the results of our work. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone visiting Brussels, it was the highlight of our trip!
Great guide. Excellent stops. Yummy chocolate! Highly recommended.
Excellent, smart, informed tour guide, all was delicious. - would definitely reommend
Guide really knows her stuff and you get to experience different types of chocolate in many locations. Not just ok chocolates, GREAT chocolates. Every stop improves the quality of the chocolates and you can really taste it. My one suggestion? During the chocolate-making portion, it would be great if there was just a small bowl of fruit or maybe some croissants. Four hours of chocolate tasting (tour starts at 9 am) gets rough on the palate. So bring a non-chocolate snack to smooth everything out.
I really enjoyed this tour and I think it's a Must-Do if you visit Bruxelles.
This tour was so great! I went to the city by myself, so booking tours like this one was great sos I had a activity with others. We did a couple hours tour around the city centre of Brussels. Our guide, Nadia, was very enthusiatic and knowledgable. She not only taught us about chocolate, but also some history of the city itself. Then we went to their company office to have the chocolate making class. We spent about an hour there making our own little chocolate creations that we could take home with us. Then one more shop to end the tour. It was so much fun! I learned a lot and tasted Brussels' best chocolate at Pierre Marcolini... MMMMMM... it's worth it!
Had a great time. My husband and I and our 12 year old granddaughter loved the tour. Our guide funny and knowledgable. Needless to say chocolates were fabulous as was making our own pralines. Highly recommend tour.
It is probably hard to ruin a chocolate tour so it shouldn't surprise this was a terrific time. We enjoyed our guide and our group experience very much. The workshop portion was enjoyable and in a very nice facility. Our guide was happily snobby about quality chocolate and had a sense of humor as well. He gave us much information about Brussels and could recommend other activities for our visit. We ran in to him a couple of times during our Brussels stay and had wonderful conversations even outside the tour experience. AND the chocolate was FABULOUS!!! I would absolutely do the tour again.
