Baptiste and Charlotte gave us an awesome tour! We tasted some great chocolates and had some tasty beers, and Baptiste kept us entertained over several hours. He gave recommendations on good places to eat and drink, and let us know where to stay away from. We also had some other delicious treats along the way to soak up a little of the beer. We met some fun people on our tour that made the experience even more full. This is one of the best tours we’ve taken, and was well worth the money.
The best time! Baptist was an incredible guide. We had so many chocolate and beer samples we were barely hungry for dinner. It was so fun going into so many different chocolate shops / bars in Brussels. I highly recommend this tour! Especially if only in Brussels for a short amount of time.
Belgium is celebrated for its chocolates and its beers, and on this delicious tour, you’ll sample both. Meet your guide in the city center, and set off on foot: you’ll visit a number of Brussels’ top chocolatiers, and will try upwards of 12 different varieties. Then, continue to the Grand Place, where you’ll visit several bars and pubs and will enjoy at least six different traditional Belgian brews, plus cheese and cured meats. As you go, you’ll also see highlights like the Manneken Pis and the Royal Galleries.
The host was fantastic. I was alone but got paired up with someone else traveling alone. You learn a lot about how Belgians make their chocolate and get to make two different kinds of your own. Great value for the price!
This workshop is a great way to add some culture to your trip and learn something new. You also get to keep the chocolates you make which is a nice souvenir. The workshop is only 2-3 hours long as well so you can do it in the morning and then have the rest of the day to explore Brussels. Overall it was a very fun experience and I would highly recommend it.

The tour was quite good. We learned the history of the Trappist beer (which is quite strong and delicious), had one bottle of Trappist beer and three samples, visited two local bars, and overall had a very good time. What could’ve been better is if our guide Quentin was better at delivering the stories related to the beers. At times he was all over the place and sharing info that was unrelated or didn’t add to the story. It made it feel a little tedious at points. That said he did a great job engaging the group and fostering communication.
Quinten was a great tour guide,and talked us through what beers we were trying, as well as the history of beer making and Belgium, we especially learnt alot about the abbeys and trappist beers, which was really interesting. Had a great night, and would definitely recommend this trip!
Overall, my entire family loved the beer tour. Tom was very informative as well as entertaining during the entire 3 hours - he knew a multitude about all different kinds of Belgian beers and was great at weaving European history into the overall tour as well. The 2 cons of the tour were 1. we arrived 15 minutes early and waited for 10 minutes past the tour start time and no one showed up at the meeting spot. Finally, a bartender from inside came and got the remaining of us since the tour had started 20 minutes early. 2. I read reviews that the tours were around 12-15 people, this tour was 24 people which was a little too much for me as I wanted a more intimate tour. In the future, I would recommend to the tour company to get 2 guides and split up the groups. Tom did an amazing job navigating all questions for the larger group but overall, I think dividing the group in half would've been a lot better.

We had a great time on this tour. The guide (Tom) was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the history of chocolate. We visited 5 stores and learnt about the history of each one, plus had a delicious tasting. We also had a waffle. The tour involves a fair amount of walking but it is worth it to see the different areas of Brussels not just the main busy central square.

The tour was a great experience and we had a really good time thanks to our host Annelies. She also gave us very interesting information about the stores and how to truly enjoy chocolate. Overall it was excellent.
Though a bit pricy this tour was well worth your money. The tour included the basics of chocolate history and making, the belgian chocolate culture, as well as information about each shop we visited which made the tastings all the more interesting. All the chocolates we tried were delicious, starting from good to wonderful. Our guide Annalise was very personal and took care to make all of us feel included.

This tour was my favorite that we did in Belgium. The guide was excellent, very knowledgeable and friendly, he is even a brewer himself! The bars were a good variety of different atmospheres in the city, and the beers were also great and representative of a good range of beer styles. The group was very small which was great. We didn’t feel rushed at all. It was a good quantity of beer too, had a nice buzz at the end!

Withlocals The 10 Tastings™: Brussels PRIVATE Food Tour
From $98.75 (Price varies by group size )
Private Brussels Food Tour: 10 tastings
, Dec 2019
Our rating for this tour is average in comparison with another tour we took last week in London called Eating Europe, which was a small group tour. This Brussels Food tour was a private tour and we received much less. Here are the items we were disappointed with: There was no history given unless asked; There was no working relationship/pre-arrangement with vendors, which caused us to have to wait for the guide to order and no reserved tables. No water was provide at each stop and the one stop we used the bathroom there was no toilet paper (not even a holder!) and dirty. Finally, we did not receive one of our tastings because the shop was closed (which was unbelievable since this was a booked tour) and no substitute was provided. The positive was that the food was good and was a nice mixture of tastings of Brussels food culinary.
Benefit from a flexible itinerary and a dedicated guide on this private, food-focused tour of Brussels. You and your private party will stroll through the city and stop for 10 different tastings, including the famous Belgian fries and high-quality truffles. Along the way, your guide will detail the culinary history of Belgium in their commentary, and you'll have plenty of time to ask questions.
