What You Can Expect

Brussels Chocolate Walking Tour and Workshop

Brussels Chocolate Tour

Greet your guide at a central location in Brussels then set out on your tour of the city. Combine culture with cuisine as you stroll to historic highlights like Grand Place, a former market square, and Manneken Pis, an impressive sculpture created by Jerome Duquesnoy in 1619. Browse the window displays of antique shops on Jeanneken Pis and venture inside the oldest chocolate shop in the country to taste Belgian pralines.

Stop intermittently for samples in established chocolate shops, trying specialties like Easter eggs and delicate truffles filled with creamy alcoholic liqueurs. Conclude your epicurean excursion with a chocolate-making workshop in which the complex production processes are revealed.

Under the guidance of a connoisseur, create your own flavor combinations then enjoy the fruits of your labor after you’ve completed them. After 4-hours of culture and cuisine, bid your guide farewell at another central city location.

Great for Celiacs and non-celiacs alike. Our guide knew great stuff about chocolate and Brussels; after the first part of the walking tour, we enjoyed the chocolate workshop which was outstanding and delicious. If you are gluten (and/or dairy) free, let your guide know so they can accommodate! Yum!

We enjoyed this tour so much, it was the highlight of our trip! We went to 6 different chocolate stores and tasted one or two chocolates at each while learning all about the different chocolates and the chocolate making process. The guide was very knowledgeable about chocolate and Belgium. Making your own chocolate was so much fun! I would highly recommend this tour! Try to take the tour on the first day you are in Brussels because they have so many great suggestions of places to eat and things to do.

Loved the chocolate tour. The guide was friendly, very knowledgeable, loved chocolate and loved sharing some of Brussels best chocolatiers with her group. My wife is not a huge chocolate fan, but she still enjoyed the tour, tried the chocolate and found other types of chocolates that she liked much better. There is a good amount of walking, but that is the point. Get to see the city, learn a bit of history, learn about chocolatiers in Brussels and eat a lot of chocolate.

We call this tour death by chocolate! Highly recommend eating something before and after to soak up the chocolate. The class was fun and very hands on.

Really good afternoon with Avo. Lovely mix of Brussels history, cocoa and chocolate gastronomy, and Liverpool Football Club! The workshop was great fun - can't understand why a couple of reviewers were sniffy about it - and we took away bags of delicious chocolate. We learned a lot, ate a lot and four hours flew by.

When I say AMAZING, I mean it was an AMAZING experience! We learned so much more than chocolate. Our tour guide, Avo, informed us on the history, food, and chocolate of Brussels. He was awesome and really knew what he was talking about. We loved the tastings throughout Brussels. The chocolates and hot chocolate were delicious great quality and like nothing else you have ever had or experienced. The recommendations were spot on as well. We'd do this tour ten times over again.
