  • Bruges: Belgian Chocolate Workshop

    1. Bruges: Belgian Chocolate Workshop

    During this 2.5-hour workshop you’ll learn how to temper chocolate to craft 2 types of Belgian chocolates. The 2 chocolates you will craft throughout this experience will be as follows. Pralines: the most famous Belgian chocolate, consisting of a delicate chocolate shell with a creamy filing. You’ll learn how to make both the shell and the filling from scratch. Mendiants: chocolate discs studded with dried fruits, both crispy and delicious. You’ll make at least 30 chocolates, which you can either eat on the spot or take home to family and friends. With these easy techniques and chocolate theory, you will also be able to make your own chocolates once you return home.

    This was such an amazing experience. I learnt so much about chocolate and the making of it. Plus it was super fun and we got some lovely chocolates out of it! I would highly recommend this experience to anyone!

Simply take the free port shuttle service to the gate, and then walk down to the bus departure point for embarkation. Get dropped off just a few minutes walk from the historic city center of Bruges.

    We had arrived at Zeebrugge on P&O Arcadia and the cruise company only arranged a shuttle bus to the port gates or the the town near to Zeebrugge (not Bruges) The friendly staff for the bus company arranged thru Get Your Guide were expecting us and gave us a map and detailed instructions of how the shuttle buses ran and where we would be taken in Bruges for the drop off/pick up. The driver wa svery friendly and the buses ran regularly and were well maintained. It was a shame that more people from the ship did not use the service (it ran both ways with only 6 or 7 passengers) and we know that P&O charged much more for their service to and from Bruges.

What people are saying about Bruges

Great family activity! We took our 2 year old and had so much fun! You learn a little about the history of Belgian waffles, make your own and decorate with your toppings! They package up any leftovers you have to take home with you! Great activity for Belgium!

It was an excellent tour especially our guide Grozia/Grocia made it incredibly fun and entertaining and most importantly informative. Additionally all the must eat/shop places suggested by her turned out really good.

An all encompassing tour around Brugge. We really enjoyed the whole tour. Great in-depth facts and humorous anecdotes by ever enthusiastic Gosia.

Daha (I hope I'm spelling her name correctly) was wonderful, fun, engaging and a master teacher. I highly recommend this workshop.

Great offer! The tour was very informative and entertaining. Highly recommended at the beginning of our stay in Bruges.
