Choose one of two afternoon start time and meet your friendly guide in London’s fancy Mayfair area. Your 2.5-hour stroll centers on Bond Street, home to elegant stores selling luxury goods, fine jewels and – of course! – exquisite chocolate.

Along the way, hear interesting facts about the history of chocolate-making in London.
Your tour ends on Old Bond Street in the afternoon with plenty of time to head back to your favorite shops and pick up some extra treats to take home.
I did this tour with Lisa and it was wonderful. She was very friendly and had great anecdotes for us, which made even the walking around even when we had to switch a location and walk longer just fly by. She also took the time to search for good replacement samples where allergies were an issue. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone, I would go again myself!
I went on this tour today, it was a birthday treat for a chocoholic friend, and we were both very impressed, it was far better than I had expected. This was due in the main to our brilliant tour guide Lisa, who immediately put everyone at ease with her warm welcome, and by passing round some delicious chocolate coffee beans from the Algerian coffee house.
The route Lisa took us on was easy and relaxed, we walked via the quieter, historic backstreets from Soho, along Piccadilly and on to Mayfair and Lisa passed on snippets of interesting history as we walked. it was a fun and tasty journey around the world of London's chocolatiers... with plenty of samples and a lot more.
The tour felt very relaxed and well timed, there were always opportunities to buy..but absolutely no pressure. I should also mention that Lisa took the trouble to search out samples with a little less sugar, specifically for me as a diabetic. A great tour, a fab guide, highly recommend!
Did a tour with Lisa and she was great. The tour is very enjoyable and tasty. You also get to see a few places that you might walk on by. It was a real treat. Lisa our guide was very knowledgable and fun. You should totally go on this tour.

The first day was disapointing, as the location had changed and no notfication. but the company who organised this tour from london was brilliant they organised the next day even though I was the only one doing it.
Our guide was excellent. Very knowledgeable and fun. Really enjoyed the tour and would highly recommend.
This tour was amazing!
This tour was made very interesting by Sarah with plenty of samples of chocolate.
This was the first of this type of tour that I and my 14yr sons have had and we really enjoyed the whole tour. Our guide was very friendly and professional and she looked after us totally. We will try another similar tour.
Good way to see bits of London that one would not normally see and you pick so much useful information fro the guide.
My sister and I were treated to the tour by an overseas friend and we had a great time. Our guide, Lisa was brilliant and was funny, polite and knowledgeable about the history of chocolate in London, its production and other aspects of London's history.
Lisa, made the tour so enjoyable and I would definitely recommend the tour to others.
