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 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.

This was a fun way to spend a Saturday morning. 4/5 by Licia Reitano 15-7-2018
My wife and I really enjoyed the tour. At the first stop we only received one piece of chocolate each and we thought that we weren't going to get enough. However, over the duration of the tour we definitely had enough chocolate (one lady couldn't finish it all), including a magnificent mini hot chocolate. Our tour guide (Aster) was excellent - relaxed, friendly, informative without wanting to lecture us non-stop. 4/5 by Maureen Box 15-7-2018

Tour guide (Elena) was excellent, her commentary was interesting, venues visited were good, offerings from venues was bit of a mixed bag - some (Chokolat) excellent, others less so 4/5 by Tim Hamilton 14-1-2018

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
