What people are saying about West Flanders

A really fun way to spend some time on our holiday. We were able to create filled chocolates, fruity and nutty disks, and enjoyed hot chocolate while our chocolates were setting up. Harry was really organized and kept things moving along. It was so fun to take away a pretty gold box of chocolates that we had made, and to have learned enough about doing it we can now attempt to make chocolates at home.

My family - two adults, two kids (6 & 8 years old) - had a wonderful time. There was just enough challenge to keep the adults entertained and the kids were able to join in on the fun, sometimes with assistance, and LOVED decorating the chocolates. The hour-long class felt long enough and we all left very happy!

The guide was really nice and friendly. We learned lots about the history of waffles and the instructions were easy to understand. We were very full at the end and had a great experience. Thank you!

Made chocolates for the first time. It was fun and now I'm "almost" ready to open my own chocolate shop in two years. ;)

Despite knowing little to no English, I managed. He showed a lot, so it was easy to understand.
