What happens on the tour?
Meeting at St Paul’s Cathedral, opposite the iconic (and some would say controversial) Federation Square and famous Flinders Street station, you’ll join your local tour guide and your band of fellow chocolate lovers. Each tour has a maximum of 20 participants so no need for headsets on this tour!
You’ll usually find other locals joining our tours, also eager to uncover some of Melbourne’s hidden gems they were previously unaware of.
The tour commences with your local guide spending some time getting to know the group and explaining the itinerary for the afternoon’s walking tour. They will also spend a few valuable minutes talking about the correct way to taste chocolate. Yes, there is a right way and a wrong way and once you know how you’ll want to tell everyone else! Once armed with this knowledge you’re ready to embark upon your chocolate walking tour of Melbourne.
Over the course of about 90 minutes we will walk about two kilometres (1.2 miles) and visit four amazing chocolatiers and cafes. All of our partners offer couverture chocolate (the good stuff!). All of the places we visit are exclusively Australian and many are unique to Melbourne. They all have their unique tastings and experiences. While the specific partners we visit will vary from time to time (depending on their opening hours) we guarantee amazing chocolates on every tour.
On the chocolate walking tour, we will visit some of Melbourne’s most iconic arcades, chatting about the history and sharing some of the fascinating stories they hold. We’ll navigate down hidden laneways while your local guide points out some of their favourite haunts for drinks and dinner.
As we arrive at each chocolate store, we’ll spend some time getting to know the story behind the business and at some we are lucky enough to meet either the owner or the manager of the store (sometimes they are one and the same person!) before we enjoy our specially curated tasting experience.
There is then time to browse the store and take advantage of the exclusive participant discounts on offer before we compare notes on our favourites and continue our discovery. (Please note that all tour visits are pre-planned and there is no expectation for you to purchase products.)
The tour includes a lovely sit-down tasting experience where we rest those weary taste buds, enjoy a well-earned drink and share our favourite experiences from the afternoon.
