Our family went in November and really enjoyed the tour. It was perfect since we were only in Brussels for a day and it was a quick summary in less than 3 hours. The fries were awesome and we really enjoyed the beer sampling.

A pub tour through Brussels on New Year's Eve, I can only recommend it! We had a lot of fun and at 7:00 p.m. we had a little "Schwipps"! New Year's Eve was really cool. I would book again in a heartbeat!

Mark was very knowledgeable, and the tour had a lot of "must sees" along the way. We had a great time, the food was delicious, and we loved trying all the different beers!
