What better way to indulge yourself than with a tour around to Melbourne's best chocolatiers, sampling delicious treats.

This tour is a chance to discover some of Melbourne’s best chocolatiers and gain insight into their craft.

You’ll be able to sample the chocolates as you go and learn the elements of a proper chocolate tasting. You’ll also learn about the different cacao percentages, and how they affect the taste. Discounts on purchases are also available at a number of the venues.
You will visit eight venues around the city, with a break in between. There will be some walking involved on the day, so please wear comfortable shoes and bring an umbrella if the weather calls for it.

It was interesting and I appreciated that we visited Melbourne chocolatiers, rather than the 'big' names. Great that not too much distance was covered, it was an easy walk. I really enjoyed the visit to the spice merchants - fantastic. The best thing was the hot chocolate at Ganache. Christina was an enthusiastic and informative host. Well done. 5/5 by Natalie Heiniger 27-6-2016
Overall the tour was enjoyable. It was quite cold and that might have taken the edge off the fun a little. I enjoyed the Ganache and the spice house. Cristina had a great personality. 4/5 by mary-Lin Litchfield and Tom McMahon 27-6-2016

I thought it was great! Lots of variety as it wasn't just chocolate shops that we visited. I also liked that we went to the smaller more intimate chocolate shops that you wouldn't otherwise know were there. Rather than just going to the standard Lindt, Haigh's etc. 5/5 by Alysha Trounce 15-2-2016
