What bloggers have to say
This tour also included a chocolate workshop, where we had the opportunity to create our own chocolates with Belgian couverture chocolate, as well as watch a chocolatier as he made pralines (and got to help by squeezing in the praline centres!). You got to take home everything you made as well, which meant that K and I had two large bags of chocolates which lasted us for weeks into our trip! We may have been a little overenthusiastic in creating new combinations of chocolates…
Not only did we taste his unique chocolate, but we were able to get hands-on and learn how to make our own chocolate. Our small tour group dawned hairnets and aprons and were allowed back in the chocolate making ‘kitchen’ of Laurent Gerbaud. Our guide, Marc, continued to lead us throughout the streets of Brussels offering up nuggets of history laced with his fun personality. We not only learned about chocolate, but we learned about Belgium culture – a truly informative overall experience. I also really appreciated the fact that Marc stressed to us we were under no obligation to purchase chocolate at any of the shops we went into. I never felt any pressure to buy, as the cost of the tour included our tastings.
You might know me as one of those travelers who typically wouldn’t take an arranged tour in a new destination, since I would often want the chance to curate my own itinerary. But when it comes to Belgian chocolates, surely, I would be needing the help of those who are more knowledgeable about it; so I suggest that if you’re looking into the chance of indulging your inner chocoholic, Global Enterprises’ Chocolate Tour is an experience that you shouldn’t pass!
The groups are formed of maximum 20 persons for an increased individual experience and are led by wise experts that will answer any question raised, not only about chocolate, but also about history.
It is highly recommended to not bring infants on the tour for the well being of all customers, including the parents that might not fully enjoy the culinary experience. The atmosphere is not appropriate for infants ( 0 – 6 years) due to the fact that is it a tour involves walking around the city centre which might cause fatigue for the small ones.
