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.

I had a great time! Patricia was so fun and knowledgeable! Got to keep all the chocolate we made and we bought some more from her shop! 10 out of 10 experience!

Both simple and complete, both in terms of "history" and manufacturing processes.

fun and delicious ! my secondo time here and still lots of fun

so great! lovely host and great range of beers and history!
