Thank you a great tour we were in a small group the guide was fantastic. Her knowledge about chocolate was impressive and interesting. She was focused on everybody finding out each persons taste and ensuring a great time for all We tasted lots of chocolate that I wouldn't normally try she encouraged you to explore and discover more. The walk around Zurick was also an experience we won't forget for some time.
This fantastic tour will take you through the streets of old Zürich from chocolate shop to chocolate shop. My knowledgeable guide imparted information about the history of the city as well as about the history of chocolate in Switzerland. At times we stopped and paused to discuss the finer points of chocolate from what you should look for when you enter a chocolate shop you are unfamiliar with, to how you should taste chocolate so you can access all of the flavors its maker imbued it with.
Although this tour has is regular stops, mostly to chocolate shops only the locals know about, the guide noticed that a couple of the people on our tour loved salty licorice. In honor of this preference, we stopped at an additional shop along the way that specialized in licorice and fresh gummy candies. This stop did not cost us another stop, any explanation, or time. The guide did this merely as a personal touch.
I greatly enjoyed this tour and will recommend it to all who go to Zürich. If you want to see the city and enjoy chocolate, take this tour. You will learn a lot and enjoy plenty of delicious, Swiss chocolate.
