    Fantastic Workshop
    Rachel_T, Aug 2022
    Had a blast! My friends and I weren't too sure what to expect when we signed up for the class but it absolutely blew our expectations out of the water! The instructor, Patricia, was great. She explained to us the intricacies of chocolate tampering and the differences between each type of chocolate, white, milk, dark, and ruby (there was an informative tasting of each type of chocolate at the end which we really enjoyed.) The chocolate making itself was then great and super easy to get the hang of for beginners/children with plenty of toppings to choose from when decorating. We got to make chocolate bars, little chocolate pieces, and truffles which were all delicious. Would definitely recommend this class to anyone interested in a unique Belgium chocolate experience, whether you're going as a family or a group of friends! Well worth the price for the amount of chocolate... and knowledge you get!

    Thanks so much! It was amazing to meet you and to share with you our passion for chocolate! Have a great moment in Brussels!
    An amazing time making chocolate
    Taylor_M, Jul 2022
    My friend and I had a great time making chocolates, the lessons were informative and interesting and the chocolate looked and tasted fantastic afterwards. The smell of warm chocolate as we worked just enhanced the experience even more. Would definitely recommend as a must try when staying in Brussels.

    Choco-fun!!!
    Stacia_I, Jul 2022
    Informative and fun!!! Interesting to learn all about tempering chocolate and what makes chocolate different to cacoa

    Thanks a lot! It was a pleasure to share this moment with you!
    Great fun especially with preteen kids
    Jade_D, Jul 2022
    Traveled with my 11 year old son. The chocolate making class was a perfect experience for us to break up the day and give our feet a rest from all the walking. The chocolatiers were very knowledgeable, friendly and patient. It was the perfect balance of history and actual hands on experience. We were able to make 3 different types of chocolate treats as well as sampling a chocolate “flight” of white, ruby, milk and dark chocolate. Best part was being able to bring home our creations as souvenirs!
    Response from Host, Jul 2022
    Thanks a lot Jade! It was a lovely moment shared with you!

    Bitter Chocolate
    Holger_S, Jul 2022
    Surprisingly unfriendly manner and almost no efforts to deal with our requests. It gave the day a bitter taste instead of being a sweet surprise for my friends.
    Response from Host, Jul 2022
    When you don't respect your booking and you think that you are untitled to come when you want then probably this is what is happening... The minimum asked to the participants is the respect of the terms of booking including the code of conduct. Our staff is not responsible for your own failure.
    Fun Times!
    ALEX_B, Jul 2022
    Very fun, informative and the chocolate was delicious! Lots of different types of chocolate and toppings.

    Fun activity

    I had a great time and learned a lot about the chocolate making process. This is something that I definitely wanted to try while I was in Brussels. I'm glad I got an opportunity to do it.

    Fun but crowded
    Josh_E, Jun 2022
    We had a good time, and got to take home a lot of chocolate, but there is one negative. There was over 24 people in the group, and a very small room, crowded around. People in the back could not see anything that the chocolatier was doing missing out on a key experience. We got to make the chocolate and that was a lot of fun but we would’ve loved a closer experience. My suggestion to the company is to simply get a bigger room or sell less tickets.
    Response from Host, Jun 2022
    Thanks for your review. It is true that sometimes our workshops are over crowded because we have a lot of requests. We manage to share our guests in two different rooms but sometimes the booking are made at the last time and we don't have enough time to get the necessary staff.
    A must in Belgium
    Pamela_S, May 2022
    What a fun and informative experience. I did this with my daughter. Amazing staff and the chocolate is all you would expect in Belgium!

    Excellent and delicious
    Judy_R, May 2022
    We had just one day in Brussels and wanted to find a unique experience to fit into our short time. This was the perfect choice. We were greeted by our friendly teachers on time and check in was simple. The slight wait to get everyone checked in and washed up was made pleasant with some delicious chocolate ice cream. The workshop started with an informative talk about chocolate and chocolate making, followed by a demonstration of how to make various types of chocolate snacks. We went later in the day and were lucky to be in a small group so had plenty of space and personal attention while we created our own masterpieces. Overall this is a wonderful experience, good for all ages, and you get to take home a generous amount of chocolate when you are all done!
    Response from Host, May 2022
    Many thanks for your nice words! We are so happy that you enjoyed this moment with us! Enjoy your stay in Brussels and we send you lots of love!

    Déçu!
    Ines_B, Jul 2022
    Aucune indulgence! Suite à un petit retard du à un problème de circulation, ils ne nous ont pas laissé rentrer et on été super désagréable! Aucun geste commercial ou ne serait-ce qu'une certaine compréhension face à notre déception. 4 places réservées finalement pour rien et non remboursées !
    Response from Host, Jul 2022
    Déjà votre petit retard était de 20 minutes sur un atelier d’une heure… Ensuite il est bien précisé qu’une fois l’atelier commencé on n’accepte plus personne. Quand on est en train de faire une démo chocolat on ne va pas tout arrêter pour accueillir des retardataires. Vous êtes la seule responsable de votre retard, au moins assumez au lieu de mal noter ceux qui étaient là pour vous accueillir à l’heure! Qu’auriez-vous dit si nous étions arrivés 20mns après la bouche en coeur? Des insultes et autres commentaires désagréables je parie. Et vous auriez eu raison cette fois! Tous les jours nous changeons des réservations à la dernière minute, encore fallait-il nous appeler au lieu de penser que vous pouviez arriver quand bon vous semble. Nos conditions de vente sont claires et même sur les billets il est écrit que l’on n’accepte personne une fois l’atelier commencé. Si vous n’avez aucun respect pour nous, pensez au moins aux autres participants qui eux arrivent à l’heure et qui n’ont pas envie d’avoir leur atelier chocolat perturbé par des gens qui se pensent être les rois du monde sans jamais se remettre en question.
