We did Gourmet Belgian Food tour and really enjoyed it. We had done similar tour in Barcelona but this one was much better and different. Our tour guide Marc (he is also the owner of this tour company) did a great job. He started the Tour in his apartment where traditional Belgian food was served, accompanied by good wines and beer.It was very nice atmosphere, you get a chance to talk to different people from other countries .At the end of the dinner Marc took us to traditional Belgian cafe for famous Belgian waffle. Marc is a great guide,very knowledgeable and has great sense of humor.Thank you Marc! This tour is a must if you want to eat Belgian food and get information about Belgian cuisine.

The tour was very good. We went to three traditional restaurants and had very good food. Plus Raoul provided us with a lot of information about the area, history, people, etc. It was nice that there were only 3 tourists in the group so it felt like we were out with friends rather than on a tour.

Delicious! Tour started at the Royal Toones bar and then we went to Chez Patrick for mussels, ham with endives, shrimp in a cream sauce, and plenty of Bordeaux wine. Then we finished the meal at a dessert place for a traditional Belgian waffle. Our tour guides were fantastic! And, they were kind enough to give me a ride back to my apartment because it was late at night and didn't want me walking the streets alone! Very nice!

It was fun! Our guide was very educative and told us a lot about Belgium cousine and its beers. We tastes very good beers, traditional Belgium dishes and desserts. I would recommend this tour for everyone.

I think anyone visiting Brussels should take this tour. The sites and food were amazing! Our tour guide, Marc, was very well versed with Brussels. He took us to the oldest bar, Chimay, which has been around since the 1600's. While there I tried a blueberry and rasberry beer that was out of this world. Word to the wise--don't go if you've already eaten. Go hungry because you will definitely eat until your heart is content. Everything was so fresh and delicious. I'm making myself hungry just thinking about it (lol). All I know is I will definitely return to Brussels again.

Excellent fun! The food was delicious and the company our little group formed was charming. Although we deviated from the published itinerary a bit, the guide was superb and it became like having a meal (an excellent) one with friends. Highly recommended.

I was the only one that turned up. It was nice. Had a nice belgian beer, then had beer braised beef, mussels, fritz, mashed potato with cauliflower, sausage and ham. Belgian waffle was very light and tasty esp after a heavy meal. Guide was great. Walked me to my hotel. Price of tourLittle expensive.

This tour was a fun tour. It ended up being all women which made it more fun for us all. The food was not gourmet but typical Belgian food. I would name it the Typical Belgian Cuisine Tour.

The tour was a nice way to spend an evening to get a locals guide to some of the best food in the city (as well as points of view on politics and life of the country).
We made three stops to different restaurants - one to sample some good appetizers, the next to sample mussels and a beef stew and the last for coffee. Food was very tasty and plentiful. Drinks were included which was very nice although we are not big drinkers so we didn't take full advantage.
The only thing I felt was a bit lacking (and this is a very small thing) was that there was no dessert course. It wasn't a matter of lack of food - just that I would expect a city with such a great selection of sweets to have some of that represented on a food tour. No matter, we sampled plenty of it on our own during other parts of the trip.

The most redeeming part of the tour was the excellent first restaurant we went to, and that all of the participants were very friendly and nice. The tour started off the guide showing up late and half drunk. We then went to a chocolate store which was closed. We had a beer, then proceeded to the restaurant. The tour guide managed to get us kicked out of the restaurant after the first course, so another restauarnt had to be found. The second restaurant was awful and very touristy. The dessert (Brussels waffle) was ok, but nothing spectacular. By far, the best part of this tour was the first restaurant and the excellent people that were on the tour with us.

A little late getting started no big deal. We just stayed around the Grand Place thats fine, Food was fine but what made it fun was the people you meet .Good way to spend last night in Brussels
