A great way to experience Edinburgh - an informative guide to follow around who keeps giving you delicious chocolate! Alisha, our guide, gave a little history of each chocolate establishment and some advice for the really really really good stuff. She took good care of everyone in the group and was able to make a personal connection with us. Alisha would be worth asking for by name.

The first tour that I scheduled was not actually available. I got fast and effective help with a substitute tour and a refund by CALLING the customer service folks at VIATOR - emails were far less effective

This was a great tour that took us to places we wouldn't have found on our own. We even went back to two of the locations a second time on our own.

Very enjoyable tour around Edinburgh, where you get to try a variety of treats from several establishments. The Brownies from Bibi's were delicious, and the Fudge from Fudge Kitchen on the Royal Mile was decadent. We made the most of the discoveries by returning to Coco Chocolate the next day for a warming hot chocolate, and also bought souvenirs which suffice to say didn't last long in both the Fudge Kitchen and Hotel Chocolat!!.
Our Tour guide Stephanie was a gracious host, and the owner of Lickety Splits was highly entertaining. If you have a spare couple of hours and a sweet tooth, then this tour is definitely for you!!

Jenny was an excellent tour guide. She was very friendly and informative. I especially liked the reception we received at the independent shops plus the fudge factory.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this November 2015

Very disappointed with the tour, guide never showed up, and the numbers listed on the ticket were not in use. Have since e mailed my complaint and questions about what exactly happened and have had no contact from viator. Would not recommend at all.
