    You will enjoy lots of history about Brussels and some amazing food and beer! This is definitely a tour worth taking. Make sure you arrive hungry. Our tour guide, Abo, was a wonderful host and was very informative. I highly recommend this tour.

    The guide was good though not native to Belgian, the meal okay. I would not call it gourmet belgian food. First we went for the chocolate tasting due to the time the shop would be closing. This seemed odd. Next we went to one of the close by restaurants and were shuttled to the back of the restaurant. The food was good, but not great. Drinks were offered but limited selection. No real discussion about what were were getting and why it was special or what made it special to Belgian. After dinner we went for a waffle at a shop in the Prince section of the nearby covered mall. This was the best waffle we had during our visit so this was a great location to end the tour. The group was great and the best part of the tour as we had great discussions and an entertaining night due to their companionship. Overall, not sure it is worth the price. Would have liked to have meal split between two restaurants perhaps and more discussion on the foods but what can I say, I'm a foodie..

    Very informative and interesting guide. We returned to see some of the places he suggested on our second day. He went the extra mile to make this a great experience. The mussels, frites, beer and dessert were great. The main dishes rated somewhere in the middle, but the restaurant was nice.

    I saw parts of BRUSSELS, which I would not have seen otherwise.
    Enjoyed the tour.

    Two key phrases describe this tour: food and walking - LOTS of both. Make sure to be rested and very hungry. I would describe the food as Belgian traditional - mussels, Belgian beef stew, and waffles just to describe a few of the offerings. Before we ate anything, we had over an hour of walking near the Grand Place and seeing some sights that we probably wouldn't have found on our own. The tour ended up being over 4 hours, and one of our party dropped out prior to the end due to sheer exhaustion, so she missed dessert, but overall it was a good evening. Avo really knows his stuff!

    What a great food tour of Brussels food. From the chocolates to the grilled rabbit to the waffles, all was wonderful. A great evening and a great guide. The tour made our trip to Brussels quite special.

    If you are looking me and did not know what types of food to eat in Belgium..this is the tour..you get a really extravagant meal..we had rabbit which I'd never had, a steak..several different types of beer..great chocolate and a wonderful waffle at the end...our tour guide was very nice..and the only reason I give it 3 stars is because out tour guide did not give that much historical information.

    A slightly chaotic start due to the guide running a little late from a previous tour, but well worth the wait. Very well planned and designed tour, with an excellent, well-informed, entertaining guide. Good value for money and highly recommended, but come with an appetite as there are a lot of courses to taste!
