The only real regret about the trip is that one’s liver, kidneys and belly can only take a certain amount of punishment before they decide that you’ve had enough and starting screaming at you… (well, your stomach tends to do it first!) so you can only try a finite amount of the drinks on offer in the various establishments around the city.
Halfway through the tour, some exceedingly pungent and ripe cheeses were wheeled out in front of us, tasty… but I couldn’t really abide the aroma of one or two of them. I can’t really recommend undertaking one of these tours enough, you’ll see a bit more of the city than you otherwise would and you’ll certainly get to know some new bars and new beers better than being left to your own devices. The tour guide (Oscar) even stayed behind when we offered to buy him a drink as we enjoyed our tour so much. At Є35-40 some people might think it a bit on the steep side, but for 3 hours of someone’s time who will definitely provide you with an education and some tasty drinks and cheese; it really is rather good!
In your face (as they say in Brussels apparently, I forget the Flemish phrases exactly – it’s a direct translation, trust me).
