What you’ll do

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.

Experience highlights

  • 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

Wonderful experience

Our guide Salvatore was fabulous! My husband had surgery recently and Salvatore made sure he was taken care of throughout the tour. The food was delicious and the information about Brussels was very interesting. Do not hesitate to take a tour with Salvatore!!!

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.
