Keen for a waffle from the backstreets of Brussels? We promise it’s not as dodgy as it sounds.

You’ll join one of our food-crazy local Brussels hosts who can’t wait to take you on a culinary journey of their city that’ll have you sampling all things authentically Belgian like a Flemish stew cooked in Belgian beer, delightful chocolate and fluffy waffles and fries.

No - not French fries, but Belgian frites. (Word to the wise - never, ever, under any circumstances mention French fries).

You’ll be able to tell the difference after a bite or two.

With just 3 hours for your own all you can eat, it’s up to you and your host whether you sample from a local family owned brasseries, ambient taverns, artisanal chocolate shops or hole in the wall restaurants that serve real Belgian food with a passion.

Or all of them!

And of course, you’ll pick up some street food along the way too, since it would be a crime to miss out of Belgian waffles while you’re in town.

  • Join your food-fanatic friend (aka one of our Belgian hosts) on a 3-hour journey through the culinary delights of Brussels

  • Sample from an array of charming cafes, taverns or sit down for an authentic traditional meal- the choice is yours

  • Your experience, your pace! You can choose to try all you can or perch at a single cafe to sample their offerings- we suggest waffles followed by Belgian frites (you’re on holiday, you can have dessert first)

  • Learn some Belgian cooking techniques and speak to your host about other food surprises you might enjoy

This experience will be personalized to you!

  • 3 hours with your host

Ultimate Brussels Food Experience

We had a great time on this intimate and personalized food tour. Our tour guide Michael was very cool and knowledgeable about the foods we'd be trying and origin stories. He also had great conversation about life in the city as well and how things are there for the people. We traveled with a 1 and 5 year old at the time and he was very friendly/accommodating with them. We also had a couple of food restrictions that he worked with the restaurants and shops we went to ahead of time to ensure all would be well. It was a good time and definitely worth the price.

Ricardo was terrific! Every single stop was tasty and delicious and accompanied by fun historical and architectural facts. He took us to parts of the city we might not have discovered on our own. Very highly recommend! Thanks City Unscripted!

Reviews for Brussels

A great introduction to Brussels!

Exploring Brussels with Michael was a GREAT way for us to see as much as possible in the short amount of time we had. I have to say, from the booking process to the pre-tour communication, to the flexibility of last minute changes to our itinerary, to the tour itself, this was a wonderful way to see Brussels. Michael was a great host and took our wish list and our interests to heart and we had the best time in all the touristy highlights which were not to be missed as well as the "off the beaten path" local spots well worth the time to visit. And....I must say the CHOCOLATE was AMAZING (and surprisingly did make it home!!) Thank you Michael for the wonderful experience!! Until next time...
