“Our tour guide was very knowlegeable about chocolate and the city of Brussels. She helped uncover the subtle differences in the various shop's approach to making chocolates. I loved the hands-on workshop too. ...Shannon H., Canada – See more reviews
What To Expect
For the love of tasting them, for the desire of touching them, for the art of making them.
It is in Belgium that the idea of a little chocolate shell filled with delicious creams, ganaches, marzipan and other pralines was born. Whatever the Swiss or anyone else might say to the contrary, Belgian chocolates are the champs. They are so lethally addictive that they ought to be sold with a government health warning!
You will learn how to make them yourself through a fun workshop. Orangettes, pralines, Easter eggs, you will learn the secrets on how to make them. Made with real cream or alcoholic filling, they can't be kept long. But then again, you weren't planning on keeping them for long anyway, were you?
We take you on a walk through and around the Grand Place area and help you get oriented in the heart of the old city. We will see the Manneken-Pis, the oldest citizens of Brussels, the square of the Sablon filled with antique shops, the Royal Galleries being the seat for the oldest chocolate shop Neuhaus.
Boulevard Anspach is home to a number of fashion boutiques and chocolate shops and Ilot Sacre, a jumble of streets and passages, houses restaurants with outdoor terraces where street musicians provide a noisy ans colorful atmosphere.
You will love this original walking tour that looks at the authentic Brussels like no other tour does.
