    The sad part was the food tour was cancelled due to lack of people that signed up for the tour ( I was the only one on the tour). But I was invited to join the Chocolate tour for free. I learned a lot about the history of Brussels and chocolate.

    this company was very professional and knowledgeable. I highly recommend them

    We loved our food tour with Carla! We had a chance to try many classic Belgian dishes and treats as well as learn about the culture and history of Brussels. Our guide was so helpful in making suggestions for dining and drinking on our own and we learned so much during our tour! Highly recommend!

    Best tour- simply a must when you're in Brussels! We had a wonderful tour guide, we walked around the city and we knew we'd be trying classic Brussels dishes but didn't realise how much we'd get for the price! Come hungry you will certainly need the room. The tour was a really good way to see parts of the city you wouldn't normally venture to, such as the hidden pubs. Would certainly recommend to anyone :)

    We loved this tour! We had the opportunity to try some many different local dishes, beers, desserts and discovered some of the history of Brussels along the way. This has, by far, been one of the most enjoyable food tours we've done through Viator! I highly recommend this tour... and go hungry!

    The title does not disappoint. Come hungry because you will not get samples. You will be served full portions. Our guide got us started with a sit down lunch with the local food selections then mussels and all sorts of beer paired to the meal. He showed us the best waffles and made suggestions for dinner options. We ended the tour with visits two Belgian chocolate tastings gives you a chance to take home some fine selections.

    Fabulous! The tour guide gave us real insight into Brussels. The food was exceptional and it was wonderful to meet others visiting Brussels. Actually made a couple new friends while eating and chatting. I felt like it was more than just a food tour we learn a lot about Brussels and saw a few different areas as well as the statues

    AMAZING!!!!! We met outside a chocolate shop and went right into it. We figured lunch was going to be bite size samples, but it was a full meal and we needed the walk for sure afterwards. We stopped and had some amazing waffles with an amazing beer. Then final stop was the chocolate. OMG so good. I am not a lover of dark chocolate but the sample we had was sooooo good. Our guide was amazing and funny! Great tidbits about the town as we walked. Worth the money for sure!!!

    This was definitely a delicious tour though I did find the food excessive for the time allotted. One suggestion would be to have a smaller quantity of each of the foods tapas size for example. The historical part was interesting but very limited and one thing i would suggest is that the tour guide keep phone calls and other business at bay while leading the tour as it was very distracting.
