Tom did a GREAT job. Very funny and very knowledgeable; I recommend for your Beer Tour. We started at Scott's pub where I had a bottle of Westmalle Trappist Lager and then walked a couple of blocks to a smaller pub where we sampled Blanche de Namur and Timmermans Lambic & Stout plus another that I failed to take a picture of. A splendid time was had by all!

Had a great time on the tour, took about 3 hours then did a pub crawl after. I’m blanking on the tour guides name but he did a great job at explaining the beers and the history behind them.

The tour was quite good. We learned the history of the Trappist beer (which is quite strong and delicious), had one bottle of Trappist beer and three samples, visited two local bars, and overall had a very good time. What could’ve been better is if our guide Quentin was better at delivering the stories related to the beers. At times he was all over the place and sharing info that was unrelated or didn’t add to the story. It made it feel a little tedious at points. That said he did a great job engaging the group and fostering communication.

Quinten was a great tour guide,and talked us through what beers we were trying, as well as the history of beer making and Belgium, we especially learnt alot about the abbeys and trappist beers, which was really interesting. Had a great night, and would definitely recommend this trip!

Informative Beer Tour, Very Crowded

Overall, my entire family loved the beer tour. Tom was very informative as well as entertaining during the entire 3 hours - he knew a multitude about all different kinds of Belgian beers and was great at weaving European history into the overall tour as well. The 2 cons of the tour were 1. we arrived 15 minutes early and waited for 10 minutes past the tour start time and no one showed up at the meeting spot. Finally, a bartender from inside came and got the remaining of us since the tour had started 20 minutes early. 2. I read reviews that the tours were around 12-15 people, this tour was 24 people which was a little too much for me as I wanted a more intimate tour. In the future, I would recommend to the tour company to get 2 guides and split up the groups. Tom did an amazing job navigating all questions for the larger group but overall, I think dividing the group in half would've been a lot better.

I normally don’t do group tours and guided things I like doing my own thing. But this was the best time I could’ve had no matter how much pre-planning I did. Enter our group beer tasting tour guide, Charlotte; knowledgeable charming and fun to hang out with as well as all of the other people who literally made up all four corners of the globe. If you’re looking for a fun time and a chance to meet people from around the world this is a great way to do it I highly recommend this tour! Cameron WigginsWilmington, NC

We purchased tickets for beer tasting on Christmas Eve. We showed up at the designated starting point - no tour guide was anywhere to be found and the bar was closed! Turns out none of the bars in the area were open on Christmas Eve. We are still waiting for this to be “looked in to” but if we aren’t refunded This won’t be my last post. Unfortunately it was the only day we had open for a tour so we couldn’t reschedule. We were all very disappointed!!
