Our tour guide gave us so much history about the town of brussels that i wouldn’t have known other wise. He brought us to many different fountains and statues explaining the story of each one. He showed the architectural mistakes of the grand place. The food part was worth it in its entirety. We started with belgium chocolate that just melted in your mouth. My group and I went back later that day to buy more. We then had some belgium trappist beer which was also yummy, and im not the biggest beer fan. Then it was lunch time and just wow. The portions were amazing. We got a big bowl of mussels to start and then finished with a beef stew. Finally we went and got a waffle. That was a little bit of a let down. Not the best waffle i had in belgium however, it still tasted good.

The tour was wonderful! So much good food and Sebastian was so knowledgeable. We were stuffed by the end and went back to get more chocolate since it was so delicious. Sebastian knew so much about the beer and had interesting information on the history that we wouldn’t have known otherwise. Definitely recommend!

This tour and tour guide was amazing! It was very cold and rainy out there but I rarely thought about it. Very informative about Brussels! The food was amazing! I loved every bit of the tour and I’m not a cold weather person. This is a must see tour!

We have been on multiple food tours in different cities around the world, but this one was not amongst the best. The food was good, although nothing extraordinary, but the guide did a poor job presenting the different tastings. At the beer tastings we got a lot of good and interesting information, so I think the guide was a bit more interested in beer than food. The tour also involved relatively long stretches of walking, during which little or no information were given. I would suggest that they put some more effort into giving fact and information about Brussels when walking between the sights and tastings. On the plus side, the portions were generous and it was plenty of food. All in all, a mediocre experience.

This was a very fun tour. Total
people on tour was 14. Guide was very pleasant and funny and spoke English fluently. We stopped for chocolates at a lovely chocolate store (Mary) and at a local pub for large pour beer tastings from beers made by the Trappist monks, as well as a cherry beer. Along the way, our guide gave us Brussels history and provided humorous anecdotes. We then walked to the offices of the tour company where a sit down, three course Belgian lunch was served, that included among other food, Belgian mussels and meatballs. It was a lot of food and very delicious! After that, we walked to another spot for a Belgian waffle with whipped cream and chocolate sauce. This was an excellent tour and an excellent value. Don’t eat before you go!

Myself and my friend did the tour as we were only in Brussels until 7pm and wanted to incorporate food and beer. Great tour! Our tour guide was really good and helpful. She encouraged questions and answered all the groups questions. She was a Belgian person too who values their traditions and promotes authentic local handcrafted goods!

This tour has the potential to be great, our guide was ok, he seemed a little out of his element, but overall not a huge deal. The part that surprised me was we walked around at a very rapid pace, but didn't actually get any information on what we were seeing. The food was all really good, we tried several things I had never tasted before and each was delicious. The waffles were the highlight at the end. It was a good food experience but the rest of the tour was a bit of a blur.

This tour perfectly shows the most underestimated part of Belgian culture - its cuisine. Not only beer, but the kitchen as general. Mussels, chips and chocolate (for dessert) are the first thing to taste when on Belgian soil.

I wish i could give this a better review but it was not well organized with lots of crisscross walking and not enough sightseeing information. Not a tour I would recommend. Food and beer were fine.

Dear customer, We thank you for your review and this will encourage us to do a better job in the future. First of all, may I remind you that you showed up very late for this tour and that your guide Daniel decided to wait for you, although I told him not too. Then I find it very strange that you were together with other people who gave your Daniel a 5 star review; quote Awesome time, a review that you can see a little bit higher. I wonder what you are looking for? A full refund maybe?
