Had a very nice tour through Brussels. Learned a lot about the city while enjoying delicious specialty beers and various snacks. Definitely recommended to get to know Brussels better in a fun way.

A very nice tour of four different pubs and bars. A drink was provided upon entry. We would have liked the drinks to have been a variety of Belgian beers instead of the schnapps.

Sebastian was a fabulous guide. He was full of useful information but didn't over load us.

Was amazing, really nice guides, good pubs and friendly group

Definitely more interested in Belgian beers than before.
