Whether you’re a visitor to the city, currently hosting visitors, or simply looking for something to do on the weekend, this three-hour tour of Adelaide’s best chocolatiers is a fun, exciting and delicious event to put on your to-do list.
This tour is a chance to discover some of these 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 a number of 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.

A fun few hours learning about South Australian businesses and tasting yummy chocolate. 5/5 by Francine Edwards 16-9-2018
Well paced 2.5hrs.
Presenter with lovely but very young and nervous. 4/5 by Danielle Johnston 16-9-2018
Thought it was a bit ordinary, not value for money, we could have gone to all those chocolate places and purchased far more than the samples for far less, why include haighs when you can't go into the store and we stood in the mall with a bag of choc buttons they supplied, also blackeby's was a let down. Tour guides lovely 3/5 by Helen Brown and Malcolm Brown 16-9-2018
It was a fun day out and got to experience some new chocolate places I had never heard of before. The hot chocolate was my favourite. Yolanda, the guide, was very good. 4/5 by Fallon Sandercock 16-9-2018
Really lovely hosts, Brodie...his first time and Sangini. Both relatable and interactive with group. The chocolate shops visited were great, with Steven ter Horst the best of the bunch. I liked that out of all of the businesses visited he was the only one to interact with the group. I thought the time in some spots would have been better if there was interaction with the owners...however overall I was not disappointed. Found new places too that I didn’t know existed! 4/5 by Jodie McNamara 3-9-2018

Lot's of fun! - Thanks 4/5 by Katie Gilham 31-7-2018
Yolande was friendly informative and punctual at all of our stops providing us with some history of Adelaide and chocolate history as well. To walk the tour was important as it allows the group to take in the smaller less unknown chocolate shops. 4/5 by John Gigger 30-7-2018
Yolanda was great informative guide. First four venues were excellent and very welcoming. I think this would still be a great tour without including the last two although I understand the reasoning. 5/5 by Deirdre Plummer 29-7-2018

The tour was very informative & Sinead was a good host. The size of the group was spot on (11) & we had lovely weather too. A very pleasant morning in the city & it was lovely to visit places we'd never been to. We'll certainly look at doing another tour.
