What You Can Expect

Small-Group Chocolate and Sweets Walking Tour of Zurich's Old Town

Discover the sweet side of Zurich on this small-group walking tour!

Start your 2.5-hour walking tour at Paradeplatz, where you’ll meet up with your guide, a local food writer and chocolate connoisseur with a working knowledge of Zurich’s artisanal sweet shops. From this main square, embark on an afternoon stroll with your small group through the cobbled streets of Altstadt, or Old Town, the historical heart of Zurich.

Chat with shop owners eager to share their passion for Swiss chocolate, and hear about its rich history. Discover the origins of the cacao bean while you indulge in single-origin chocolates.

You’ll enjoy a cup of specially churned hot chocolate at Zurich’s oldest confectionery, and taste an array of delectable treats — including nougats, pralines, truffles, pastries, cupcakes and homemade ice cream — at shops along your way.

After you sample a tantalizing range of decadent sweets, conclude your food walking tour of Zurich at the Rathaus (Town Hall) in the early evening.

A great way to end our time in Switzerland Our guide gave a thorough explanation of the process for making high quality chocolate, the history, technique, background. The pride that the shops had of their specific specialty was obvious. Helped us pick out our favorites to take home to enjoy.

This tour was fantastic! Lexie, our guide was amazing and friendly. She took us to 4 stops, all of which had delicious treats to try and we had time to shop. The merchants were extremely friendly and generous with their samples! Lexie also had an overwhelming amount of information about Zurich to tell us. We thoroughly enjoyed this tour and highly recommend it!

This tour was far better than I expected it to be and I expected it to be wonderful! Our tour guide was great, the chocolates were to-die-for and the chocolate education was far more interesting than I expected it to be. If I ever go to Zurich again, I would happily do this tour all over again! It was one of the highlights of my time in Zurich! I highly recommend it.

Chocolate is one of the reasons we went to Switzerland. Our guide Christina was very nice. It was rainy that day and only our family was in the group. Christina tailored the tour to be interesting for our kids. Since it was near Easter, she had the kids hunt for non-chocolate bunnies. It got quite competitive. I liked how we went to small chocolate makers and those only available in Switzerland. The samples were delicious and there was never pressure to buy anything. Kerrin was also helpful with some logistics. I enjoyed it a lot and would recommend it to anyone.
