Seth was a awesome tour guide. This tour took us to a few places that we never knew existed. Great info about Chicago and humor which made it more enjoyable. I would recommend this tour to everyone and make sure you have Seth as your guide. I live 2 hours south of Chicago and have been to this area multiple times, seriously of our 7 stops...5 I never new existed. And did I mention that Glazed and Infused that is on the trip is AMAZING. Thanks again Seth you made our Saturday afternoon FUN! We were stuffed after so its a good thing we were walking to burn off some of the calories we consumed!

Good eats. Some vendors were not ready for us when we arrived which made for a lot of standing around waiting although our guide tried to call ahead. Each location was local so don't think you are going to Hershey's of Giardelli's. You will be pleasantly surprised by the treats from donuts, to gelato to cupcakes to candies and truffles. The walk is not long and very accessible for everyone. Would recommend this tour.

Guide was knowledgeable, but didn't seem to see many places. I have attended Chocolate walking tours in several urban cities and they made more stops and had more tastings. The chocolate treats we did try were all delicious. The value for the dollar was less than expected. Maybe adding more stops to the list??

1 star rating: I do not recommend this December 2013

We found the tour somewhat disappointing. The impression we went in with was that it would be something more than stopping at six different places and sampling one piece of candy or muffin. The candy was good but we thought there might be some explanation/demonstration of the process. Perhaps a visit to an actual candy factory. In essence we got a sample and a 20% discount if we wanted to purchase. Not really worth it for the cost of the tour.
