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.

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]

    We did the Chocoholics Walking Tour through the streets and arcades of Melbourne. It was wonderful!!! Amanda our guide was very informative and took us to all the best Chocolatiers. We learnt how to eat quality Chocolate and what a difference it made to eat the finer chocolates and learn the best way to eat them. Yuummmm!!! Thoroughly enjoyed the 2 hour tour. Would thoroughly recommend it.
