Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour
A must-do for all chocoholics and those looking for a different experience in Zurich. With the help of a food expert, you'll discover all the sweet spots in the city, especially those unknown to most locals and tourists -- get ready to embrace temptation!
What You Can Expect
Your guide will escort you to artisanal shops in Old Town (Altstadt) where you’ll chat with owners who are eager to share their passion for chocolate. Learn about cacao (the bean from which chocolate is made) origins and percentages and become a tasting expert. Ask anything you ever wanted to know about chocolate and sweets -- being on a small-group tour makes for a casual, friendly experience.
Stop by Zurich’s oldest confectionery and enjoy a cup of specially churned hot chocolate. Choose from a variety of nougats, pralines and truffles for tastings at other shops along your way. Indulge in unique flavors and try single-origin chocolates, which are made from cacao beans from a single harvest. Savor pastries, cupcakes and homemade ice cream. All your tastings are included, and you can scope out which shops you’d like to revisit later in your stay.
In between tastings you’ll be walking along the cobblestoned streets of Zurich, so it’s easy to work off some calories! Your 2.5-hour walking tour of Zurich’s sweet shops concludes at Rathaus (Town Hall) at around 5pm.
Fantastic. Kerrin's knowledge of chocolate and Zurich was amazing. She encouraged us to try things we wouldn't ordinarily sample, told us her favorites and took us to places we wouldn't have found otherwise. This is a must for chocolate lovers.
It was wonderful. If you have the time, it's well worth the cost. We have found that these types of tours go way beyond expectations, because while you need to walk from one chocolatier to another, you are learning about the city and the locals and their culture. This was not our first chocolate tour, nor will it be the last.
