What people are saying about Brussels

The chocolate making workshop was great. The staff were lovely and our instructor was brilliant. She was so knowledgeable about the whole process of creating chocolate and made the workshop fun and lighthearted all the way through. She also encouraged us to eat as much chocolate as possible; so what’s not to love?!

This was a great experience. While it took 2.5 hours the time flew by and I wished we had more! The staff were super personable and willing to help and gave us a lot of independence. Had tons of fun, would definitely do again!

It was a lot of fun. Just note you’re not ACTUALLY making chocolate, you’re simply receiving melted chocolate in a piping cone that you then put into a mold and add toppings to. Regardless we had a fun time!

Very interactive and thr pralines were delicious;)

Excellent tour. Great guide, good food, good tour.
