What people are saying about Brussels

Great chocolate making workshop, we very much enjoyed it and can highly recommend it. Two and half hours might seem like a lot of time to dedicate from your probably busy vacation schedule, but it is definitely worth it. It was one of our highlights from our Brussels trip. The instructor, Mariah (if I remember her name correctly), was amazing and took the workshop to another level.

This workshop was so much fun! Lisa was so great!! Couldn't recommend her more. If I'm ever back in Brussels, I would do this again. Lisa made the whole thing so enjoyable and even if you struggle with the chocolate making she has great patience to help you. Thank you Lisa!!

The tour was very interesting and informative. Our guide Tom gave detailed information about Belgian beer. There were a few beers to try in really different flavors. He responded to the various questions posed by the participants
