Incredible tour with everything you ever wanted to know about chocolate —plus many, many chances to experience chocolate’s diversity through tasting. The owner, Ahmet, elected to do our tour with less than the minimum number of people. Lucky for us for he truly loves doing the tours and sharing his vast knowledge about chocolate and the shops in San Francisco and beyond. A special bonus includes a guest loyalty card good for discounts for a year. Highly recommend this tour!

My husband and I went on this walking tour as part of our trip to San Francisco. Our tour guide Maggie Ziomek was brilliant. She made us feel welcome and was so knowledgeable about the products we tried and the companies that made them. There wasn't much walking involved, so don't let that turn you off. We learned about (and tasted) lots of different chocolates - including a frozen hot chocolate! Definitely something I would do again - maybe in another city. A great way to find some lovely little shops and companies that you wouldn't know about otherwise! Recommended!

This was a great tour and the guide was very knowledgeable. We had goodies to take with us when it was over. If you like chocolate you will love this tour!

I loved this tour! I can eat a lot of chocolate in one sitting but even I eventually got to the point where I had to save some chocolate for later. Lots of samples make this well worth the money!

Amazing tour with a wonderful guide. She was extremely knowledgeable about chocolates and its origin. Went to several of the small chocolatiers as well as bakeries. A definite stop for everyone visiting San Francisco.

Really great! Didn't think we could ever max out on chocolate, but there we were, unable to stuff ourselves with any more amazing chocolate samples! Great little walking tour of downtown and an overview on the chocolate making business.

Wow, our guide Maggie was super! Her knowledge of chocolate was very informative and she really took her time answering questions. All of the stops were absolutely delicious. Do not take this tour if your not a big chocolate fan! You will eat so much and still go home with more!

Loved this! Marie was wonderful, knowledgable and we had plenty of chocolate to eat. Everybody had a very good time and I learned a lot about chocolate that I didn't know before! Do it, it's's not for young children but older teens and adults will enjoy.
