 Everything was delicious and our tour guide Victoria was great but we would have liked to have gone to more bakeries and/or chocolatiers.

Chocolate Tour rocks! 

4 stars

 This was a great experience - we went to eight places and experience a wide variety of chocolate treats, from a fabulous brownie to chocolate-infused teas to amazing sorbet, finishing off with the ultimate cupcake. Our guide was knowledgeable and entertaining, and even educated us on how to tell the difference between high-and low-quality chocolate by the ingredients. All in all, a great afternoon!

 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.

Veronica was AWESOME!

 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! 

- - South End, Boston

Cambridge Chocolate Tour 

4 stars

 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.

Question: I'd like to participate in one of your culinary tours in Boston and was interested in the Chocolate Tours. Is there parking available near the start of the tours or should I take the T?

Answer: Street parking is not recommended for these tours. Most street parking in Boston is only 2 hour and the tours may keep you longer than that. For the Back Bay Tour there is parking at the Ultimate Parking Garage on Clarendon Street and the Back Bay Garage on Berkeley Street. For the South End tour the closest garage is at the Stan Hope Garage on Northhampton Street. If you decide to take the T get off on Arlington or Copely Streets on the Green Line and for the South End tour get off at Worcester Square on the Silver Line.

Question: I was wondering if this experience would be enjoyable for our two teenage daughters and ourselves.

Answer: The Boston Chocolate Tasting Tour is appropriate for children 10 and older due to the length of the tour, but all are welcome!   Tour guests should be prepared and be able to walk up to a mile. Though there will be opportunities to sit at certain stops along the tour, seating is not guaranteed.
