The tour was very good. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the history of the city and where the hidden gems were for where to eat, and what made them so good. The food itself was fantastic.

We had only our group of 4 along so it was a private tour with Karra. She was informative and fun and took us to great places for local dining, chocolate and waffles. Of course beer and wine were included!

Traveling on a girls trip to Brussels we came upon this tour. Our tour guide, Ithier, was wonderful!! He was knowledgeable, funny and nice. The food and beer were delicious and the chocolate was impeccable! I highly recommended this tour to anyone visiting Brussels. It’s a great was to taste the culture.

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!!!

We had a small group of 5 people. Koen was very good with us. As a small group we were able to get a very personal tour. We walked everywhere and learned about things I would not have learned elsewhere. Not just all the history stuff. The chocolate was amazing as were the frites and mussels.

We went to Brussels last weekend and signed up for this tour. Not exactly sure what all to expect we were so pleasantly surprised! Our guide was very personable and so informative. The beer, rather large lunch and chocolate tour, a must!
• Submitted 08 Sep 2016
This tour was great. Avo, our tour guide, was knowledgeable about Brussels and included so much history along with the great places we had our food. Worth the time and money, especially if Avo is your guide!

Our tour guide, Iyas, was so nice and very knowledgeable. He entertained us with facts and fun stories as we walked all over downtown. We sampled some very good beer. Ate a delicious, huge pot of mussels. Yummy!! Then got a sample of some very good Belgium chocolate. Great way to see the city, especially if you don't have much time to spend there. Good over view. Iyas gave us lots of information and we felt much better acquainted with Brussels after the tour.

Title a bit misleading, it is not a food, beer and chocolate tasting tour. It is a great city walking tour with a great lunch and a beer at lunch time. A Delicious waffle and coffee late afternoon and a very tasty piece of chocolate at the end of the tour.
