D.C. Chocolate Tour underwhelming; "Best" Tours co. far from it

The company gets 0 stars (more about that below), but the Chocolate Tour itself was ok. The guide, Susan, was good--knew quite a lot about the history of DC, chocolate in general... read more

If I could give less than 1 star, I would. I bought a living social voucher, registered on the company website, scheduled a tour for 330pm on Sunday 2/19/17. Showed up 15 minutes early. Waited until 4pm and no one from the company showed up. There were about 10 other people there besides my friend and I. One couple said... More

William was my tour guide and he was the best part of the tour. he was so knowledgeable about the area. I grew up in dc and he showed me historic places that i didn't even know were there He was very hospitable I would do this tour again but only if William Spates gives it!

While the tour description says that there are 7 stops on this tour, we only went to four. I expected to get what I paid for and I did not. I would not use this tour company in the future unless you want to get an underwhelming tour with hardly any chocolate.

My date took me on an walking door for chocolate in winter the other week. Guess what? Best Tours was there as the expression goes rain or shine. Our guide, Susan arrived early to greet us. We had some no shows guests she said. Well, we stuck it out in January with a rare snow day. We had fun. Susan... More

I am a big fan of this company. I've seen bad reviews about them but I just want to travel more to do more and more of their tours! I've now been to a few in different cities and I have to say Sally our tour guide in DC was exceptional. Great landmarks skills, took us to nice sweet shops... More

First I'd like to thank Susan our guide! She is the perfect guide: kind, funny and knowledgeable. We had an amazing time during this tour. Much more fun than expected. I recommend it to everyone.

I bought a groupon for the Great Food Tour in DC as a gift in October. We live a bit of a drive from DC so we were going to make a big day out of it. Ended up being cancelled due to low attendance (website says that their tours run 90% of the time. This is questionable.) Being optimistic... More

The tour guide (Susan) was stern but pleasant. I wouldn't rate her very highly in terms of tour guide charisma but she was enthusiastic about chocolate. We ended up missing a stop (Dean and Deluca) since I think she stopped to talk poorly about Georgetown history a little too long - she should probably stay within the lines a little... More

I would recommend her as a tour guide, both for her knowledge and her enthusiasm for the subject matter. As for the chocolate...... More
