  • Brussels Culinary Evening Tour

    10. Brussels Culinary Evening Tour

    If fries and mussels already sound appealing to you, this tour is a must-do activity in Brussels. Whilst you can have dinner almost anywhere, it is difficult to get an inside look into Belgian cuisine. Often you need help to choose which dishes to select, not to mention varying prices and quality. This evening tour is a unique gastronomic and cultural experience as it combines the highlights of Belgian cuisine with the history behind its best dishes. While the majority don't think French fries are a delicacy, wait until you try Belgian frites with mayonnaise. The list of tastings will include Flemish beef stew or grilled salmon (upon your taste).

Great tour! The food was delicious!!! Honestly, if you do the tour in the morning there is no need for breakfast, because you get so much food. We had a beer, did some sightseeing, then went to a restaurant and had a salad with two big shrimp croquettes, a huge pot of mussels, vol-au-vent with fries and an eclair for dessert. You could also get a coffee at the end of the meal. Each course was accompanied by a different beer. Then we did some more sightseeing and ended the tour with two pralines each, which was more than enough after the huge feast xD Our guide was very kind and knowledgeable. He gave us tips for further destinations we wanted to visit and showed us cheap options where we could buy the beers we tried. I can only recommend doing this tour!

This was a great tour with a great mix of beer tasting and sight seeing around Brussels. Our tour guide Sebastian was great, and I would definitely recommend this tour!
