We booked the Beer Tour through the Viatour app. Our guide was Jan who was very knowledgeable and obviously loved beer! Our tour of Brussels took us to charming old pubs and bars which we accessed through the myriad of alleyways in Brussels full of restaurants, chocolate shops and tons of history. We attended a beer tasting class and combined... More

The tour with Cedric was brilliant. Deeply informative, interesting, amusing, refreshing. A real passion for his subject communicated with infectious verve. Can't recommend highly enough

My take away is that the tour was informative but disappointing: 1) Went to the Gueuze Museum... tasted the "natural" beer (world’s oldest styles of beer manufacture) that tasted like watery tea/lemon/koolaid (yucky) ... The other tour attendees thought it was ok.. so I kept quiet... 2) tasted 2 other beers at 2 other "pubs" ... again not enlightening ...... More

Hi John, please excuse me, but I find your review quite confusing. You rate us "poor" but at the same time you say the tour was informative and that the guide was entertaining and pleasant. You say you didn't like the Lambic, Geuze and Kriek beers at the Cantillon brewery but later you go on and recommend all three in... More

The tour started at a bar from the 1600s. I was so happy to get my first beer which is actually one of my favorites. And to drink it in such a historical atmosphere was amazing. The information I learned here about leffe was shocking and other things I learned blew my mind. next stop was a bit of a... More

For a tour to really work you need a great tour guide, regardless of the subject matter. After experiencing a shocking tour guide on this company's bike tour, I was a bit apprehensive of what was in store for the beer one. My fears were quickly allayed as I met Cedric, who introduced his engaging, quirky and funny personality very... More

We loved the tour. It was a highlight of our trip for sure. Colen was so knowledgeable!! He was able to give us so much detail about every aspect of brewing and he maintained a great demeanor even though some of our group were rude. We would recommend this tour to any other beer lovers out there. No matter if... More

We had a small group which was like family by the end of the day. Cedric was our tour guide and he was so knowlegeable. There was not a question he could not answer. We got so much information that the time past really fast. He kept every person's interest the whole time. We went over our tour time but... More

In a group of 18 we met Cesar at the Grand Place, it was a little tricky finding the tourist information center at first, but not a problem. We started our tour at 14:00 on Friday 20th June at the bar shown in the photo attached with this review. A great bar with heaps of character and from the beginning... More

We had a blast on this tour. It was a beautiful day and Cesar was fantastic. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the trip. I will say that there were a group of businessmen that clearly were not interested in the tour but attended anyway for the sake of a company outing that dampened the experience a bit, but every...

I was on the same tour as reviewer JordanLRice and have to say that his review's title "Unplugged from the Matrix" is the most awesome and appropriate statement to describe this tour! (Jordan proclaimed this at the end of our tour and our group loved it! There were smiles and laughs all around.) Cedric was our tour guide and was... More
