In 2010 we christened this the “Evening Chocolate Tour”, but it could better be described as "the best of chocolate everything". Rather than just chocolates you would find in a typical chocolate box (truffles, pralines, caramels, fondants), you'll sample the best of chocolate in all its forms: from a freshly roasted cocoa bean to chocolate bars, hot chocolate, gelato, a you-won't-believe-it’s-dairy-free sorbet, truffles, brownies and a bespoke chocolate cocktail in a secluded London bar.
This is the perfect tour for a date or company event, especially if one of your party is less convinced how much they like chocolate! You will learn how chocolate goes from a fruit to a delicious truffle and sample most of the stages along the way. Approximately half of this three-hour tour you will be seated (at the beginning and the end).
The Evening Chocolate Tour starts in Covent Garden in a tiny chocolate factory and travels through Soho to Piccadilly, wandering past a varied array of architecture and street culture that your guide will point out and share her stories of. The tour finishes in the bar where you are welcome to remain and have more bespoke cocktails created for you!
