The museum is very informative about the history of potato in an interesting way .. my kids really enjoyed it .. don’t throw away your receipt , it gives you a discount in the fries at the end of the tour .. I advice purchasing the ticket online from GetYourGuid , it really offers you “ fast track” for entry

My husband and I had a wonderful time at the waffle making and beer tasting event. I loved one of the beers (!) and the waffles were fun to make and yummy to eat. A great way to feel like you’re doing something local, getting fed, and meeting some new people. Highly recommended!

We had so much fun at this cooking class. It started off with Belgium beer so everyone’s was pretty relaxed by the time we started cooking. The tasting was the perfect amount of time. I have to admit, my Belgium waffles were delicious. I would do this again.

We had a terrific guide, Martin, who was patient, knowledgeable and interesting. A great way to see a beautiful city.

Great fun, amazing host and really enjoyable. The Waffles and beer were very tasty.
