Our guide Karla was a total pleasure and explained chocolate in a way we never really imagined. Every bit was delicious, but we also got a great tour of the city and a few good laughs too.

My wife and I had a great time, both fun and informative. Alex was a super guide, giving history of the city, chocolate and chocolate shops and showing us local places to dine etc. She was also very interested in the workshop and what we were making. The workshop was great fun too!

Listen, I'm a hard core chocoholic. Big time. So for me to say we had too much chocolate - this is saying something. But it was AWESOME and I would do it again tomorrow. Carla, our guide, was super knowledgeable about the area and the chocolate itself. This tour was a lot of walking, about 4-5K, but with the amount of chocolate you are having that is necessary. Make sure you wear sneakers and bring a camera and lots of water. Enjoy!

I expected to hear how chocolate originated in brussels, the history of chocolate, be taught how to melt and temper chocolate properly, how to store chocolate, etc. Nope, we went into each store and were handed samples and left. Tour ended 1 entire hour early, were so rushed. And I expected us to work with a chocolate professional on making our chocolates, nope, the tour guide told us to place melted chocolate on a sheet of wax paper and now we have out chocolates to take home. This tour was very expensive, not worth the money for what you actually get, and the take home chocolates were a joke.

My chocolate tour guide was Carla, who was an absolutely wonderful guide. Full of energy and enthusiasm as she showed us the highlights of Brussles and explained the different levels of chocolate found in the city. Her fun personality made the tour all the more fun for us. I really enjoyed that we go to try a fairly wide variety of chocolates as well as a little drink and ice cream too! In the end we ended it with one of the best chocolate truffles I've ever had in my life. I highly recommend it, the Champagne Truffle, which explodes in your mouth, full of flavour. I would highly recommend anyone to join this tour, especially if you love chocolate :

Definitely a must in Brussels. Our guide was very informative. I think her name was Carla? We enjoyed eating the chocolates that we had made. We brought home Mary's chocolates. They are definitely worth the calories!! My wife wrote this review.

This tour was very good and our tour guide was very knowledgeable. The chocolate class was fun too. Wish they would let you choose the chocolates you wanted to taste at some of the shops.

Our guide was incredible. His knowledge of the city, its chocolate experts, and the chocolate stores was amazing and he kept it quite interesting and tasty. His explanation of chocolate and the people who make them was fascinating. We got to taste many many chocolates. With our guide always pointing out his favorites. The hot chocolate (even in 100 degree heat) was my favorite with a tie with the chocolate sorbet. Making our own chocolate treats was also a highlight. Tour includes stops at all the

This is a fantastic tour with chocolate tasting, history of chocolate and Brussels as well as making your own. If you are arriving in Brussels in the morning, you can easily do the afternoon tour.
