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.

We had an excellent time walking around and visiting the chocolate shops. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable. In each shop we received a discount and good service. The chocolates are a high quality and there was a wide assortment was available. The only issue was the meeting spot is a five minute walk from the tube station and a little hard to find, if you arrive early no problems.

Loved it...saw a lovely slice of upmarket London, and tasted some delicious chocolate. Our tour guide Ferry was a great character. We really enjoyed our afternoon with him. A different and tasty way to see something of London.

If you are into chocolote, this is the dream tour! I really enjoyed this tour, and would definitely recommend it! We went to all the top places where they produce great quality chocolate and you can buy it as well, and did quite a few tastings of all sorts of chocolates I had never tried before. The guide was really friendly and knowledable as well, and gave us great recommendations in each of the places.

This was a fantastic experience; never I could enjoy (and laugh) so much on this tour. The tour guide explained, with packs of humor, many peculiar facts concerning the history of chocolate, some known chocolatiers, the production of high quality chocolate, some fantastic stores in London with a wide variety of offer and flavors, all this while I tasted some amazing delights. I really enjoyed it!

We had an excellent time on this tour! As we're London locals, it was great to do something a bit different and find out about all the best chocolatiers in the city. We also saw some great parts of Soho and Mayfair. Our guide was fantastic - very knowledgable and funny and we got loads of free samples! I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone that wants to do something a bit different in London and anyone that loves chocolate!

This tour was great, not just because of the chocolate tasting opportunities, but also because it takes you to some of the most interesting and historical stores in London, which also happen to be in some of the most glamorous parts of the city. The guide, Ferry, was amusing, and clearly likes his chocolate! Really good if you want to see classic London, and eat and buy some chocolate!
