Definitely a good choice. Our guide Nadia was energetic,charming, and explained more about the city as we walked along than I learned from a previous city tour. The chocolates.....fabulous. My favorite "Chocopolis" and the people there were very friendly and handled shipping for us.
Loved the tour. Got to see all the sites in Brussels plus eat some amazing chocolate. Tour guide was great.
This turned out to be an excellent walking tour of Brussels with a delicious chocolate sample inserted to keep the energy up. Seriously, our guide was suburb and the "chocolate making" workshop was lots of fun for all. On our tour, the workshop came mid-tour in order to allow time for the chocolates to solidify. They were delivered to us at the end of the tour. I don't think there could be a more complete tour of Brussels in the time allotted to this tour. It was definitely worth the price! Both my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience and would recommend it to our friends and family. Lois from PA
This is a wonderful tour; fun and informative and one of my favorite experiences in Brussels. The hands on chocolate workshop was the highlight for me - a social time with the group while creating your own chocolate candies to take home. I signed on by myself as my husband was in Brussels for work and this is the kind of tour you can feel very comfortable doing this - it is casual and inclusive. We had a great guide, Jan (I believe that was his name) - you learn a good deal about chocolate and the tastings allow you to discern the differences in quality but the focus is on having a fun time. I highly recommend this tour - who doesn't love chocolate???
we are a family of 4 ( 2 kids and me and my wife ) and we tried the chocolate tour this month. we visited around 6 speciality shops and in addition tried our hand at making some chocolates in a work shop. we were guided by stefan and the tour started promptly at the designated time of 9 am. the meeting place was easy to find and the first shop we hit was Godiva .. Stefan is quite knowledgeable about chocolates and the beer scene and in addition is able to talk about the city of brussels with lots of fluency and authority.. this makes for good listening ... the tour per se is outstanding and we just could not do justice to the tasting experience .. after the first shop we and my wife gave up and it was only the kids who were trying .. the kids loved the making experience and the video is enjoyed by them even today :-) .. overall a great experience
My Reco's for the trip are
1. 4 hours of walking and so pls plan for good walking shoes
2. weather is unpredictable and so pls carry a umbrella
3. there are offers given in this tour and you should use this to buy .. we shopped at Corne Port Royal and Godiva .. the high end was just too costly :-)
4. Carry a good camera and am sure you will love the photos

The Brussels chocolate tour was one of the highlights of our trip. We sampled a variety of chocolates, including truffles and pralines. We even learned some of the science and history of chocolate and why different kinds taste better than others. As the tour progressed, each tasting got better until the absolute best: Marcolini! It was some of the best chocolate I've ever had in my life. The workshop was also really fun and the chocolatier we worked with was great at leading the class. Our chocolates turned out really tasty! I would highly recommend this tour to any visitor to Brussels - your trip wouldn't be complete without trying some of the best and most famous chocolate in the world.

The chocolate tour was fantastic! We tried lots of chocolate and each one was better than the last. The chocolate-making portion of the tour, coupled with a beer was by far my favorite part. It was very enjoyable - we got to try our hand at making chocolates and take them home with us. It was really fun!!
Our family really enjoyed our tour. It was not just about going from store to store tasting chocolate. Our guide Stefan not only talked about how chocolate is made and its history here in Brussels/Belgium he gave us storied on the history of Brussels, some historic sites, places to eat and other sites to see. Infused with funny anedotes Stefan gave our family a wonderful morning tour of the world of Belgium chocolate and we evev attempted to make our own chocolate shapes!
Would definitely do this again. This is not a tour of the big name chocolate makers, but rather the quality chocolate makers. Would not visit Brussels without taking this tour.
The tour was everything I expected. The chocolate was perfection we got a chance to try over six different chocolate stores and even got to make our own chocolate. The tour guide was amazing he really knew his stuff and if you have 3 hours to tour brussells this is something you do not want to miss.
Great day and it was exactly what was described. I was thrilled to hear our tour guide's name was Mark because I had read he was the best and we were not disappointed. This is the perfect way to hear a lot of history of the city and to also taste true Belgium chocolates from chocolate shops you might not normally have thought to go into. The workshop was fun - not too long, just long enough to learn some tips on how to make delicious chocolates at home. One tip, bring your walking shoes. You will be going up and down some stairs and walking along some uneven cobblestone paths. 5 star tour all around!
