Very informative and interesting guide. We returned to see some of the places he suggested on our second day. He went the extra mile to make this a great experience. The mussels, frites, beer and dessert were great. The main dishes rated somewhere in the middle, but the restaurant was nice.
I saw parts of BRUSSELS, which I would not have seen otherwise.
Enjoyed the tour.
What a great food tour of Brussels food. From the chocolates to the grilled rabbit to the waffles, all was wonderful. A great evening and a great guide. The tour made our trip to Brussels quite special.
A slightly chaotic start due to the guide running a little late from a previous tour, but well worth the wait. Very well planned and designed tour, with an excellent, well-informed, entertaining guide. Good value for money and highly recommended, but come with an appetite as there are a lot of courses to taste!

Wonderful introductory night in Brussels! Great guide and fellow travelers, excellent food and knowledge, would highly recommend!!
Really enjoyable tour. The guide was really great. I would recommend it. I learnt a lot and enjoyed the group.
This tour is a must! I would highly recommend to anyone. Make sure you're hungry because there is sooooo much food.
Wow! What a fun night with Mark and Arti.
The tour was so fabulous and fun. What a great way to get your food experience when traveling. I went back to Elisabeth chocolates to take gifts back to the US.
Thank you guys.
Unfortunately, no one else in the group was prepared to tip, which I was, so it was a bit awkward for me at the end. Sorry guys.
This tour was amazing! Not only were we given more food than we could eat, we were also given a tour that detailed the history of Brussels and Belgium food. Without this tour, I would not have enjoyed Brussels as much as I did. The guide told us of local spots to enjoy our free time and also was so kind and entertaining. The price of this tour is WELL worth it between all the cuisine and beer/wine that is provided. This tour is a MUST for anyone traveling within the area!
Our guide was Jan Swerts. June 19 He was a real connoisseur. Tasting his chosen chocolate, beer, food and waffle was a fantastic experience. His explanation was brilliant and funny, making all of us feel like friends. I really thank him for giving us such an indelible memory in Brussels.
Very informative and we learnt a lot in regards to the food and culture... Our tour guide is very warm well verse, fully recommended
This was probably the most enjoyable experience in our entire trip. Most had to do with our tour guide, Marie (or Mary). Marie was enthusiastic to give us a good time. She was very attentive from taking us to taste and appreciate the Brussels beers as she was very concerned that we taste the best Zealand mussels. And of course she took us to taste the best Belgian waffles. She spent time to explain
the history and background of the city as we walked around during the evening. She paced well
the tour and spent time with us long after the "official' end of the tour. Best is probably her kind, caring and cheerful personality. Thank you Marie!

A great way to see Brussels up close, the guide was very informative and relaxed. Also enjoyed the delicious Belgian samplings, a lovely, fun and informative evening in Brussesl.
We had a small group, 4 of us. Nadia was fantastic! First, we sampled Belgian chocolates and beer. After, we had a fabulous dinner at a local restaurant. We tried several dishes, including the mussels, all were fantastic. Last, we finished the night with waffles and coffee. This is a terrific tour and we highly recommend!
We had a great time on this tour. There were eight of us ladies plus another group of five ladies so Stephan had his hands full! The cherry beer at 8% is fab - try it! Go to Brussels and go on this tour! We also did a chocolate tour by the same company with Mark which was also fab!

I wish I could rate this tour higher than 5 stars, but for now 5 will due.
This tour was such a great experience and the food was just amazing. If you travel to Brussels and do not take this tour I feel sorry for you.
The tour guides were great and the chef produced top quality dishes.

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.
The guide was fantastic and the food and company amazing. Would definitely book this tour again.
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.
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 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.
Two key phrases describe this tour: food and walking - LOTS of both. Make sure to be rested and very hungry. I would describe the food as Belgian traditional - mussels, Belgian beef stew, and waffles just to describe a few of the offerings. Before we ate anything, we had over an hour of walking near the Grand Place and seeing some sights that we probably wouldn't have found on our own. The tour ended up being over 4 hours, and one of our party dropped out prior to the end due to sheer exhaustion, so she missed dessert, but overall it was a good evening. Avo really knows his stuff!
