A 45 Minuit tour of the brewery costs €10 each - well worth a visit and a nice beer at the end of the tour. You also get to see the views of the city -

Booked the Xl tour which was great value for money. An excellent tour guide full of knowledge and made the tour funny and interesting. It's a shame the weather wasn't great because when we up to the roof the views were spoilt by the rain and clouds. The beer tasting at the end was better than expected. I thought that the tasters would be small sample glasses of beer but no the beer tasting was in proper glasses. The tour guide made us feel welcome and came round and explained more about the beer we were tasting.

Walked down to the south of the city from the Makt area in 15 minutes. Tours start at 11.00am but the area around the brewery is worth visiting anyway, especially Minnewater Park. The tours are in English, French and Dutch with the standard tour taking 45 minutes. There is an extended tour later in the day at 14.15 which lasts 90 minutes aftercwhich you can sample 3 beers as opposed to 1 on the shorter tour. Cost of standard tour is 10euro and the xl tour 10euro. Lots of steps and twisty bits with low ceilings so be careful if you have mobility issues. Standard tour taught me all I needed to know but maybe more detail is covered in the xl tour.

We did the XL tour and it was worth the extra cost. Our guide was amazing. If small children you will have to carry them as very narrow steps to go and down some places where you to go down backwards since they are steep. You get 3 tasting beers and they were amazing.

Really enjoyed the tour and the tour guide seemed stern but was actually really funny. Quite interesting and you get a free beer with your ticket. Some of the views are lovely even if the weather isn't great. Brugse Zot is a great beer.
