What better way to start the tour off at the oldest pub and enjoying a Belgium beer! Our favorite part was visiting a seafood store that made the most delicious mussels. There is another seafood store directly across that is also good. Then she took us to a kiosk that double fried the "frites". Amazing! We had other local favorite samplings. We really enjoyed our local food tour with Steph, he was such an welcoming, knowledgeable and entertaining person to show us around. Highly recommended!!

Our tour guide, Thierry was very friendly and gave not just a tour of the belgian beers, but also a brief tour of the city. Since we booked during off-peak season, we joined a group of French speaking folks but Thierry translated the tour in English for us to understand as well. The 6 beers included in the package is just enough to get a taste of Belgium and get a light buzz. Make sure to eat before jooning the tour!
