What people are saying about West Flanders

Super fun! Even as an adult, I had an splendid time. You don’t actually make the chocolate but decorate and make different shapes. I laughed a lot. The museum was interesting to see.

Wonderful activity for the whole family! Museum was amazing as well as the chocolate workshop. We took home pounds of yummy chocolate!

It was a lot of fun and easy to understand. Caro was great and created a great atmosphere. Definitely recommendable!

Nice workshop with interesting tips. A bit expensive though. You can't eat more than 2 waffles.

Brilliantly organised workshop, simple chocolate making but lots of fun and a great host.
