What better way to indulge yourself than with a tour around to Melbourne's best chocolatiers, sampling delicious treats.
If you are a chocoholic and looking for new places to try, or simply nursing an insatiable sweet tooth, this is the tour for you.
This tour is a chance to discover some of Melbourne’s best chocolatiers and gain insight into their craft. You’ll learn about how chocolate is produced, from a bean on the cacao tree through to the hands of the chocolate makers; and the terminology used by industry experts to describe the taste, smell, and forms of chocolate.
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.
The tour price includes the sit-down break, and all chocolate tastings on the day. This tour is not gluten or dairy free.

This was a great morning! The tour guide was great and I though the visits were good because they told us some interesting information but it was kept short and sweet so we were engaged the whole time, not bored. The taste testings were yum and good portions. Nice and little so can try more. 5/5 by rebecca wood 28-11-2016

Our guide Christina was great, so positive and engaged in the tour with great info and insights into not only chocolate but also Melbourne in general. 5/5 by Hayley Wallis 10-7-2016
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
