Marc was a great tour guide. Casual and very informative. Very patient with answering all the questions. Got a good background of Belgium. Read the previous reviews so knew not to eat before the tour! Wise advice. We went to one of the oldest chocolate shops for a taste of chocolate. Then after some walking and Belgium facts, we ended at Marc's place of business (walking tours of Brussels) where we dined on a three course lunch. Amazing food and way too much food! Along with food, beer was paired with the courses. Thank goodness after dining we continued with the tour and much needed walking. The only disappointment was no waffle. No history of the waffle. Belgium is known for the waffle. We all wanted a waffle! The waffle was suppose to be part of the tour. Except for no waffle, I would highly recommend this tour. But be sure to understand this is not a typical food tour with tastings from different restaurants. But the food we had was wonderful!!

I would highly recommend this tour. The food was great and an accurate representation of some of the top ten well renowned Belgian dishes. I was also satisfied that we were given enough time at each sightseeing point/stopover to ask questions and take pictures. Our guide Mark also really made the day quite a memorable one as he is extremely knowledgeable and one can also tell that he is continually keeping up to date with the latest news and research on all topics covered within the tour to ensure that the experience for tourists is not only enjoyable but that it is relevant to the expectations of travelers and tourists.

I highly recommend this tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and fun! I didn’t realize exactly how much food we were getting so I suggest either skipping breakfast or skip dinner that night. Enjoy!!!

This tour was an excellent sampling of Brussels food, culture and history. Our guide, Ithier (sp?), was pleasant and knowledgeable about all our stops. Everyone was included in the conversations while walking, which we enjoyed. He accommodated anyone with specific food and drink needs. From how chocolate was sourced to the best time of year to eat mussels, he knew it all. Small group of 6 made it more personal. Solid and memorable experience that I would highly recommend.

We had only our group of 4 along so it was a private tour with Karra. She was informative and fun and took us to great places for local dining, chocolate & waffles. Of course beer & wine were included!
