What You Can Expect
Our guide was excellent. Very knowledgeable and fun. Really enjoyed the tour and would highly recommend.
This tour was amazing!
This tour was made very interesting by Sarah with plenty of samples of chocolate.
This was the first of this type of tour that I and my 14yr sons have had and we really enjoyed the whole tour. Our guide was very friendly and professional and she looked after us totally. We will try another similar tour.
Good way to see bits of London that one would not normally see and you pick so much useful information fro the guide.
My sister and I were treated to the tour by an overseas friend and we had a great time. Our guide, Lisa was brilliant and was funny, polite and knowledgeable about the history of chocolate in London, its production and other aspects of London's history.
Lisa, made the tour so enjoyable and I would definitely recommend the tour to others.
Our guide was Lisa and she did a wonderful job of leading the tour. As the tour progressed I saw her spending time with each person in the group to learn more about them and share her extensive knowledge about chocolate. She had a great relationship with all the different staff members at the various stops-they all seemed happy to see her. At each stop she got right in and helped out with distributing the samples and making sure that everyone had somethig they enjoyed. Thought it was a great afternoon with a great guide and enjoyed the chocolate as well as all the areas of the city that we saw on our travels.
We start out at the Algerian Coffee House on Old Compton Road where we try their dark-, milk-, and white-chocolate coated coffee beans which they have been making and serving for over 50 years. Reportedly, they have the cheapest coffee in all of London. It is a no-frills whole-in-the-wall, but in-depth coffee knowledge of the whole world. It made me think that these people were true explorers. Then we cross the street to visit the Hotel Chocolat candy shop. The Hotel Choclat is the only chocolate shop in London who grows their own cocoa, in the rainforests of St. Lucia. Here we try their summer truffle – dark chocolate mojito.
Next it is the Paul A Young chocolate shop, who has won the championship for the best chocolate confection for the last 2 years and is expected to win again this year. Here we all try his award winning caramel truffle, where the caramel is a warm, buttery liquid center. Then we get to choose a second truffle of our liking. Then it is on to the East India Tea Company where we sample various hot and cold teas and any number of cookies, crackers, and jams. Afterwards, we take a detour through Soho to CovCovent Garden stopping at Freggo, an Argentinian gelato shop. Here we snake around the shop and call out the flavors we want to try. I try their signature Dolce de Leche, followed by Banana Split, and Raspberry. Then we visit the inventors of the truffle, Prestat. What an adorable little chocolate shop that has been in business for a century! It is said to be the inspiration for “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” and I can see why. Here we taste the classic truffle with cocoa powder coating. We end our tour at the Fortnum and Mason department store and a visit to their candy “counter”. Here we are treated to two more truffles including a strawberry and black pepper (I can’t even describe how well this works!!) and a passion fruit in dark chocolate.
Two hours, two miles, and six truffles later, our tour has come to an end.
Lisa was wonderful. I enjoyed every bit of it.
Spent the afternoon, with my 14 year old daughter, walking "all" around SOHO tasting incredible chocolates. Tour guide was very informative……I highly recommend the tour!
This tour was fabulous. Our tour guide Lisa was very informative, and really catered to my 6 year old daughter during the tour. I'd highly recommend this tour!
