What people are saying about West Flanders

C’était trop bien ! Mettre la main à la pâte c’est toujours agréable, la demoiselle qui nous montrait comment faire était très gentille et lumineuse. On peut faire autant de chocolat qu’on veut, franchement c’est une activité à faire !

This was a perfect activity for my visit to Bruges! Our guide was very knowledgeable and made it a fun afternoon. We got real hands on experience with chocolate, and I loved how messy we could be!

Amazing workshop with very clear explanations and we had a lot of fun during the process and Maria also had many cute jokes to make us enjoy everything even more.

The workshop was really nice, the explanation was clear, in 3 languages. A nice memory to take with you

Very good workshop. Worthwhile with the museum tour
