Quinten was a great tour guide,and talked us through what beers we were trying, as well as the history of beer making and Belgium, we especially learnt alot about the abbeys and trappist beers, which was really interesting. Had a great night, and would definitely recommend this trip!

I normally don’t do group tours and guided things I like doing my own thing. But this was the best time I could’ve had no matter how much pre-planning I did. Enter our group beer tasting tour guide, Charlotte; knowledgeable charming and fun to hang out with as well as all of the other people who literally made up all four corners of the globe. If you’re looking for a fun time and a chance to meet people from around the world this is a great way to do it I highly recommend this tour! Cameron WigginsWilmington, NC

Great evening to learn about the brewing and styles of Belgian beer inside a few local pubs. We did this on our first evening to town so we would learn what varieties we preferred to order for the remainder of our trip.

Our guide was absolutely fantastic! She was so excited about Belgian beer and had so many interesting things to share. You get four generously sized beers with your tour. If I had one complaint, it would be that I wish the tour was a bit longer, so that we didn't have to drink so quickly.
