Vad du kommer att göra

Are you a chocoholic? Do you also believe that artisanal food is the best way to discover a new culture? And that food experiences are best enjoyed in small groups?

Our first part will focus on Belgian sweet food culture and on the history and traditions of our beloved hometown. In the sumptuous Royal Galleries, you will discover Belgianness by tasting the best traditional chocolate confectionery of our little kingdom.

The second part will be an introduction to fine chocolate sensory analysis in our private tasting room. You will learn about the bean-to-bar revolution and the art of tasting craft chocolate and identifying flavor notes and tastes. You will be offered exceptional craft chocolates from very small artisans only known by true connoisseurs :-)

Please note that:
-We're often fully booked! Contact us if the dates you wish aren't available/for private experiences.
-Your guide will be either Yasmine or Joanne. The experience takes around 2,5hs.
-This is not a crowded touristy tour but an intimate experience (max 6 guests per group) with a local expert.

Yasmine is a wonderful tour guide with a relaxed and knowledgeable style. She guided us through an appreciation of the complexities of chocolate based on origin, terroir and the different notes. We learned by sampling - and had a great time!

une superbe expérience où la découvertedu chocolat et de ces goûts si divers sont à l'honneur. pas question ici de simplement mettre en valeur le chocolat belge si réputé mais bien d'approfondir sur les qualités et les arômes de chocolat d'exception

We recently traveled to Brussels and were looking for something fun to do with my teenage daughter. Yasmine met us right on time and took us around to a few of the local chocolate shops. Then we got to do a taste testing with some fantastic chocolate. She has a certification in chocolate science so she seemed to really know her stuff. We ended up stopping on the way home at the factory of one of the chocolates we tasted.

Such a lovely afternoon! Very interesting chocolate facts and of course lots of delicious tasting. Lovely personal touches for our private group tour, everyone was happy form my 6 year old son to my 10 year old daughter. There was something for everyone. Our lovely tour guide Yasmin really new her stuff and we would highly recommend this tour for anyone visiting, weather you love chocolate or not you will be surprised.

Description très détaillée sur l’histoire du chocolat dont Yasmine est une experte. Découverte et dégustation de différents styles de chocolat et leur particularités. Yasmine met une bonne ambiance détendue. Je conseille à tout le monde et également aux belges experts en chocolat!

Don't even second guess making a reservation, this tour was a wonderful addition to our time in Brussels. Yasmine is a lovable foodie who is very knowledgeable about chocolate and it's history in Belgium. She made the group environment very friendly and relaxed which made it easier for all of us to connect and converse. She also had a lot of great suggestions for other food places in Belgium which we happily enjoyed.
