What you can expect
This Melbourne Chocolate Laneways and Arcades Walking Tour begins at the Block Arcade – one of the CBD’s most historic shopping precincts. If you arrive early you’re invited to explore the gallery and store at Australian By Design, where you’ll receive 15% discount when you mention you’re doing a chocolate tour.
Once you’ve met your guide and fellow chocoholics, the first stop on this Melbourne Chocolate Laneways and Arcades Walking Tour is the prestigious family company Haigh’s Chocolates. It’s a great way to kick off the tour, and it will well and truly whet your appetite for the rest of the choccy stops secreted throughout this part of the inner city. [More]
Over in Collins Street, tucked away between Swanston and Elizabeth, the Ganache Chocolate Lounge will have you spoilt for choice as you decide which delectable sweet treat to try. In the beautiful Royal Arcade, you’ll head upstairs to discover the Bruge Room at Koko Black and sample their fine confectionery.
The final stop on this Melbourne Chocolate Laneways and Arcades Walking Tour is the fabulously delicious Chokolait in the Hub Arcade. This hidden gem is famous for mouthwatering dark chocolate pavlova and Australian origin chocolates. Enjoy!
Tour was great. I was on my own and Flick made me feel very welcome. I will definitely book some future tours.
Delightful tour! More chocolate than you can eat, and a bit of history from our friendly informed guide Louisa. Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Melbourne or who loves chocolate.
