If fries and mussels already sound appealing to you, this tour is a must-do activity in Brussels.

Since cooked meats and artisanal cheese require a refreshing cold drink for better digestion and differentiation of flavors, you will be introduced to famous Belgian beers (selected accordingly to the type of dish served) as well as red or white French wine, upon your preference. During the dinner, your tour guide will strive to offer you as much information as possible regarding Belgian cuisine, Belgian habits or anything you would like to know about the country. The location of the tour will provide an authentic Belgian atmosphere to offer you the chance to interact with Belgian culture.
