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

Let me first state that my wife and I (both lovers of Belgian beer) only had 24 hours in Brussels and we decided to spend some time (4 hours) on a tour. That was by far the best decision we made. Cedric, our guide was absolutely incredible. He was deeply knowledgeable about beer, Belgian and otherwise but not in an... More

These guys just take your money. Made a specific trip to Brussels just to do a tour. Showed up at Grand-Place at agreed upon time. No tour to be found. Had to even beg for the meeting location, should have been the first warning sign. They provide no itinerary information and conveniently, for them, provide no refund. Go to sites... More

Rest assured we are not scam artists. A tour actually did take place with 10 people on the day you reserved. It is unfortunate that you were not able to join. It is also unfortunate that neither of us can prove the reason why you couldn't find your group that day. We clearly state on our reservation email, that "there... More

This tour was a fun way to spend the afternoon in Brussels. The guide really knew his stuff and seemed passionate about the craft brewing process (although he didn't drink much beer!). He did a great job keeping everyone engaged and took us to two cool pubs/bars as well as the Cantillon brewery. He taught us a bit about the... More

I joined this tour on 29th March2014. The guide, Cesar, knows his stuff and his way around brussels. The guy is passionate. The tour was supposed to start at 2pm and last for 3.5 hrs max, but Cesar was happy to stretch it for another 1-1.5 hrs because the conversations around the beer were so interesting. The selections of the... More

I had a great time with Cedric. I was in a small group of 6 so we had plenty of opportunity to share our experiences with beer, ask questions and learn a lot. The lambic beers at the Cantillon Brewery were amazing.

Be warned don't rely on a booked tour going ahead. I was surprising my husband for his birthday with two tours with this company. A beer tour and a cycling tour. After contacting the company to confirm available dates I actually changed our train tickets so we could be in Brussels to could go on these particular tours. A couple... More

We're truly sorry about this. Due to an unforseen situation, we were obliged to cancel both tours that on tha day. We told you about the cancellation 12 days before the date of your tour (mail on February 19th. and tour on March 3rd.) and we fully refunded your payment immediately. Once again, please accept our apologies. Cheers, Cesar More

We took part in the tour on 7th march, we were part of a group of 16 with a good mix of nationalities. We started the tour going to a very old pub - which you would have struggled to find on your own. The guide told you enough to ensure you learnt but not to much that you were... More
