Featured guest review:

‘This was a great tour for chocolate and dessert lovers. Our tour guide Amanda was friendly and very knowledgeable — not only on the chocolates and desserts that we enjoyed, but also lots of other aspects of Melbourne. She gave us some good recommendations for other places to eat, both sweet and savoury. This tour is well worth doing. We had some really great unexpected experiences!’ Gail P

    My friend and I were very much looking forward to our choc/dessert tour and we were not disappointed. We had the best, most well informed few hours with Amanda. The tour was everything and more and Amanda's enthusiasm and passion for her tour, and participants, was simply amazing. We are Melbournians and we went up and down streets and laneways, and saw spots we had never before seen. Great mix of chocolate venues, great variety, great information (like, who knew there is a correct way to EAT chocolate!) and Amanda is so the right person for the job. We would highly recommend this tour to all and sundry.

    Tamsin was an excellent and knowledgeable guide. The tour was great fun. The highlight was OmNom. I will definitely be going back there again in future. I'd recommend this tour to locals and anyone visiting Melbourne that is after a sweet thing to do.

    This was a great tour to end our trip on. My fiancé and I visited about 5 different chocolate shops around the CBD of Melbourne. We got to learn about the difference between white, milk and dark chocolate. We went to Dex2rose to enjoy an amazing hot chocolate with homemade marshmallows and a scoop of ice cream to go with it. Our tour guide Flick was amazing at her job and made sure to get to know each of her guests. The only issue we had with this tour was understanding where the tour started. We only had one way to contact them and it took 15 minutes to work out which arcade (shopping center) to meet them in front of. My suggestion would be to send guests a map of the starting point (especially those guests who are from the United States and do not understand what the CBD means).
