It's worth it. The trip does not feel heavy, it does not start so early and without that it is well used. The chocolate making demonstration is also very interesting, but keep in mind that it takes one hour and there is less time left to go freely. For my taste, Mount View was missing, possibly the best view of the palace and towards the Plaza Mayor, but we did not have the info and I realized it late.

super recommended

Very happy with the choice of this tour. The guide Peter and driver Marcel very concerned, professional, willing to answer any questions. The presentation in the chocolate workshop is very informative, Mrs. Andrea is spectacular, it shows that she knows a lot about the art of chocolate. Unfortunate the education of the people who attended the workshop, they expected to be given the chocolate samples and left in full explanation of Mrs. Andrea, I felt embarrassed. There is plenty of time to shop, have lunch and take photos, it is not necessary to run, in short there is time to enjoy this tour.

EXCELLENT TOUR

We had a wonderful day trip from Amsterdam to Brussels. It is a beautiful city and our guide was excellent. We visited all the cultural centers, cathedrals, places of interest, visited a chocolate factory, had some free time for shopping and to taste the local cuisine. Would highly recommend this tour.
