Had an excellent time! Our guide Victoria was very knowledgeable and very engaging. Met very nice people. Couldn't have asked for better weather. Been to the city many times and always find something new to experience.

My husband and I went on the tour recently. It was very cold and windy out. With that said we would do it again in a heartbeat especially if Judith was our guide. The stops were great with the most amazing chocolate confections. Between stops Judith made it fun with chocolate facts and history. She made you forget how cold it was out.

I received this as a birthday gift grew up in Massachusetts and had never heard of it. When I booked the tour I requested the South End because of its uniqueness. It's such a great area. My husband and I were so impressed that we plan to go back to some of the stops and eat! We both recommend this tour! Thanks for making this memorable.

We did our tour on Saturday the 12th of November. Our guide was informative. The weather was great for this time of year. The only problem was that out of 8 places we were to vist 3 were closed to us. For the cost of the tour (times 2 people) we should of been told that in advance and offered another time and date or even another tour.

What a great tour! Our tour guide, Victoria, was both knowledgeable and very fun. It was great to learn about history of the area...and the chocolate stops were phenomenal. The homemade oreo cookies at Flour were by far our favorite - amazing!

The chocolate tour of Cambridge was fun, informative and delicious! The stops were well chosen for range of experiences as well as proximity for walking. The only site I did not like was Lush - the heavy fragrance actually made me nauseated - I would suggest leaving this site out of the otherwise excellent agenda. Meghan, our guide, was upbeat, knowledgeable. I would definitely give this as a gift.

Enjoyed the tour a lot. Although it did start late and only lasted a little less than 2 hours. Our stops were fun, and the staff at each stop was friendly and knowledgeable.
