Traveler Tips


Highly recommend doing this tour but don't plan a nice meal afterwards because all the chocolate will ruin you lunch/dinner!
It was a very, very crowded day in the city center, but still worth it.
Making your own chocolates with toppings and getting to take them with you is a very nice touch to a great experience.

Chocolate Lovers Heaven!
Michael_S, Aug 2022
WOW WOW WOW - if you love chocolate, you will love this tour and workshop! We learned about the different regions of the world that produce the cocoa bean and how the taste changes between those regions. In the workshop, we made our own chocolates and got to take those with us. The highlight, though, was really Avo, our guide who has extensive knowledge and a great sense of humor, and the chocolate sampling at different chocolatiers and confectioners. The sampling is bordering on Death by Chocolate as there were so many samples provided along the tour and an extensive variety. This tour was the highlight of our trip to Brussels!!!
Chocolate Delight
Gregory_S, Jul 2022
Mark was very knowledgeable about chocolate. We experienced good Belgian chocolate and then exquisite chocolate at Mary’s. The chocolate workshop was insightful and really a lot of fun. His tour also included parts of Brussels we had not seen before. I highly recommend this tour.

Yummy Chocolate!
Ann_Z, Apr 2022
This was the best Chocolate tour ever because of the Workshop!!!!! The sister Beer Tasting Tour said they were better, but I KNOW ours was more fun! We visited 3 Chocolatiers, toured the main sites of Brussels then went to our workshop. We had so much fun making chocolate and making friends. Was a wonderful treat/souvenir to take home! We even tasted single origin European Hot Chocolate! I will do this tour the next time I go to Brussels, and I will recommend it to all my friends.
Outstanding tour guide, fantastic chocolates!

Chocolate walk
Priscilla_Y, Mar 2020
This chocolate walking tour was great. All the shops we sampled were very good. I especially like the order in which the shops were presented so that we really got a good sampling and were able to see the variations in the tastes of different makers. The workshop was a lot of fun. I highly recommend this tour. Our guide, Christos, was very knowledgeable and not only gave us a lesson in chocolate but also filled us with history of Brussels and Belgium.
A Must Do!!!
Ryan_W, Dec 2019
What better way to see the highlights of Brussels, then to do it while eating CHOCOLATE! This for sure was the highlight of our entire trip. Our tour guide was amazing, super friendly, super knowledgeable and soooo much fun. We went in the morning group, which I think that was the best option because it was just my small family and 2 other people. The small group made it easy to get in and out of shops and have a more one on one experience. The chocolate workshop was a total hit. My kids LOVED it. Very hands on, and just a great time! I highly recommend this tour!!!
Wonderful Experience, Do It!

This was a fantastic experience for me and my wife. We received not only a chocolate tour, but also an education on the city of Brussels (we were also lucky to see the start of this years Tour de France!). The workshop was both fun and informative and we had a wonderful time! Recommend highly!

Chelsea_H, Jan 2018
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.

Michael G, Jan 2018
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.
Super funny and knowledgeable guide...

Christopher F, Jul 2017
What a great way to see Brussels and learn about some of its unique history while also sampling one of the things for which it is best known. This tour will not disappoint you. Sandra was great, extremely knowledgeable of all things Brussels and especially chocolate. Every stop on the tout was unique and interesting and of course making our own chocolate creations was a highlight. The perfect way to see lots of the city and perk up your taste buds as well.
We had a great time on this tour...
Ashley S, May 2015
We had a great time on this tour with Yann as our guide! The number of chocolate shops we visited and the assortment of pralines we tried were wonderful! Yann also introduced us to the city and a bit of its history and made restaurant recommendations so we could experience the best of Brussels. The only thing we would have changed is that we would like to have made more interesting chocolates during the workshop we wanted to try our hand a pralines and truffles!, or skipped the workshop all together in order to visit more shops and sample more chocolates. Overall though, we were very pleased with this tour and would definitely do something similar in the future. Thank you!

Sally C, Nov 2015
We only had a day in Brussels and this tour was the perfect way to see the city and indulge in chocolate Belgium style at the same time. Avo was an excellent guide and the chocolatiers the the took us to have ruined me for everyday chocolate...which is a very good thing! It was a fabulous tour and I would highly recommend it to anyone.

Michelle M, Feb 2016
Worth every penny! Very informative not only about chocolate, but the culture, history, and best sites to visit in Brussels. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting for only a day.

Mike O, Oct 2015
The tour guide Avo I believe that was his name gave an excellent tour. We really enjoyed going to each of the different chocolate stores, and it the actual chocolate making process was fun. Overall I highly recommend this tour if you love chocolate and want to see a little of the beautiful city of Brussels.
