What people are saying about Bruges

Very informative in regards to the history of waffles in Belgium. All ingredients and supplies provided. Plenty of space to make the waffles following the directions provided. Lots of toppings to try on the waffles. We were free to make as many waffles as we wanted. Very filling.

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!

Everything was perfect! We loved! Our Waffe Chef were so kind an gentle, the kids enjoyed very much! I strongly recommend and we will certainly do it again when we visit Bruges.
