What you’ll do

Your trip to Brussels is incomplete until you’ve tried a local brew - or a few. Don’t worry, you’re in good hands with one of our beer loving local Brussels hosts, who will take you on a personalized experience of a few of the city’s best brew houses.

Let us know your vibe, be it trendy micro-breweries, traditional taverns, underground beer cellars or visit a Belgian abbey and sip something brewed by monks. Then, with your host alongside, you’ll weave (not stagger) between spots where you can enjoy Lambic, Saison, Dubbel and Witbier and maybe learn more about the history of beer brewing in Belgium, the Trappist beers and the city’s beer culture.

With over 1100 original Belgian beers waiting for you to discover, it’s impossible (and not something we’d recommend) to try and get through them all in 3 hours, but your host will definitely be able to show you to a few that will tickle your tastebuds!

Along the way you can enjoy some snacks, be they Belgian frites or a cheese board to share, and get recommendations for more great places to sip your way through a few more beers during the rest of your trip.

Experience highlights

  • Spend 3 hours with a beer-loving host who will introduce you to Brussels’ local beer scene

  • Your experience, your vibe - whether you want to bar hop, pub crawl or savor the moment at a single Belgian Abbey, the choice is yours

  • Get to sample traditional or innovative beers, fruity or hoppy, strong or light - you’re bound to find a new favorite tipple along the way

  • Have a laid back, enjoyable time with a Brussels local – kicking back and learning about something we can all agree on – good beer!

  • Get recommendations about local bars and other trendy drinking spots to enjoy a Belgian brew

Worth every penny!

My husband is a beer lover; I am not. But, while in Belgium, I was excited to book a beer tour for us if for no other reason than because I thought he would love it. I found this tour and booked it because it didn't require us to be part of a big group. We were matched with Milton, and he designed an amazing tour for us and took all of our interests into account. He even found beers for me that I liked ( which was hard because I generally don't like beer). Every beer wasn't amazing, but he did a great job leading us through all kinds of different pubs and all kinds of different beer. And, he was very easy to get along with. It was, for me, the best part of our time in Belgium. He even have us restaurant recommendations! It was a great day and was worth every penny!!! Thank you, Milton!

Wonderful experience.

Joel was early, upbeat and personable, a pleasure to talk to, well versed in the city as an informed resident, and provided us with a great ‘Brussels in a day’ experience. He was able to answer all questions we had and didn’t spend too much time going on and on with stories (although was willing to if asked) so had more time to really canvas the city with a local. Joel also emailed us before the trip to make sure his tour was what we were looking for, which was a nice touch. If you’re looking for a nice walk through all of the main sites of Brussels, plus a nice stroll through more non ‘touristy’ areas (better restaurant choices, art galleries and shopping too)... make sure you buy a pair of comfortable shoes and ask for Joel!

Private walking tour of Brussels

This was a great way to get to know the city. Salvatore was a fantastic guide he took us to all of the city’s sights and some off of the beaten path. The tour is a great concept they send you a questionnaire to find out what your interests are. The tour being private you can ask as many questions without feeling you holding up the tour. Thanks for a great tour.

A walk around Brussels

My mum and I had the pleasure of Aiya hosting us on our private walking tour. Aiya was friendly, informative and took us to the perfect places. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour and we were so happy to have had the introduction we did. Brussels has left quite an impression, we love it.
