We booked the tour to do something different with our nieces who were visiting from out of state and we had a great time. This was a very enjoyable way of spending a few hours together leisurely walking around the city and learning a bit about the 8 different small shops we stopped at to enjoy everything from different chocolate candy, cupcakes, cookies, macarons, canoli, even a chance to get an old fashioned new york city egg cream! Marcy was a wonderful tour guide and was also very considerate of doing what she could to accommodate a gluten allergy which was very appreciated. I would highly recommend this tour.

Loved this tour, if you have a sweet tooth this tour is a must. Alex was a very entertaining and informative tour guide. He told us interesting information about chocolate and some history on various places we passed. The weather was great on the day we had the tour and the pace was good, you didn't feel rushed. My favorite places were Milk and Cookies and Xocolatti. When you walked into Milk and Cookies it smelled delicious....the scent of fesh baked cookies. The samples at Xocolatti were my favorite and I really liked the decor. The walls were lined with the green and black boxes they sell them chocolates in.

Great walking tour with an appropriate amount of chocolate...we totally had enough by the end of the 8 stops. Very nice tour guides. My girlfriend loved it.

We loved it! My friend who is a big NYC buff and has seen and done it all was celebrating her birthday and I stumbled on this and decided to go for it. She was thrilled and thought it was very unique. She even took notes on the historical anecdotes! When it gets warmer, I want to do it withidaughter

It was lovely - started to snow just as we started the tour - but that just
added to the magic of the tour. Got to see some other areas of
New York (that you don't see on the bus tours). Guide (Jesse) an
absolute delight - it was my daughter's birthday and she phoned ahead and
the shop owner put a candle on the cake and the group sang
"happy birthday" - it really made her day. Many thanks.

This was a great tour with our guide Alex giving us lots of information about the City so its not just about chocolate, although that was good. We tasted chocolate, cupcakes and cookies and had time to buy goodies if we wanted.

If you are a chocolate lover and are interested in learning about the Chelsea, Soho etc area of NYC then you must take this tour! We had an excellent guide (Keaton) who was very friendly and knowledgeable about the area plus the history of each of the 8 shops that we stopped at. The samples were huge and delicious! We loved every minute of it, but wear walking shoes as we were on the move for almost 3 hours. Well worth the price.

It was a gorgeous day... a melt in your mouth kind of day. Our tour guide Alex was "choc" full of information about the neighborhoods and architecture of our walking journey. I am a total sweet tooth and found that as soon as my attention was starting to wander away from the tour... it was time for another tasting. I went with my friend and my daughter who is a starting freshmen at FIT. The walk gave us an idea of the neighborhoods surrounding Chelsea. We all can't wait to spend more time on Bleecker Street. As for the best sweet... too tough to call, but I do find myself longing for a Magnolia's cupcake.

This was a very unique and fun tour to a part of the city that we had not visited before. Our tour guide knew quite a bit about each of the chocolate places we stopped. The pace was good for all types of walkers and the samples were excellent in both taste and portion. Many of the stores offered a discount if we made a purchase while there, so of course, we did buy some yummy chocolate to bring home!

This was a fun activity. We walked from the Chelsea Market through parts of little Italy and all around for 2 hrs. The guide was so informed about the various houses of chocolate that we visited and gave us interesting tales about the area we were in and even related much to the movies and TV shows filmed in that area. The only thing that was annoying was that you end up ending the tour away from where you began and if not familiar with NYC was uncertain as to how to get back to where we had started. It would have been nice to have been told that from the beginning or to have had the guide give a mini-map or walking instructions to take you from the last stop back to the first. We took the subway and that worked but clearly had no idea this was going to happen and it took away from the tour experience.

You have to be a dark chocolate lover to enjoy this tour. Most tastings were of dark chocolate and there are plenty, 8 in fact . Lots of walking also. Samples were very small. Be prepared for lots of standing also. Able to purchase along the way

The tour guide was great, he was very knowledgeable and fun. I thought there were too many people on the tour. I did a similar tour in Paris and there were only 10 people, that was ideal, this one had 20 or more and it was too many people to manage which slowed things down too much. The food and places we visited were delicious and the discount given to the tour participants on purchases was fantastic.

I felt for the money I spent I could have done it by myself. The chocolate was good, but for $50 a person I could have researched where the chocolatiers were and gotten a lot more chocolate just by buying what I wanted. The samples were small and some places they were just taken off the counter and not special for the tour participants.
