“Excellent tour - even in the rain!!”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

Jenny took us on our tour yesterday, it was fantastic, she is full of information about chocolate and also interesting facts about Edinburgh. Jenny was excellent and really friendly and helpful. The places visited were really lovely. Even though we ended up in torrential rain by the end of the tour, it was an excellent day ... mostly down to Jenny's lovely manner and attitude to life!! Brilliant fun and lovely chocolate. Thanks!

“Great wee tour, despite the rain!”
Reviewed 7 June 2014

The chocolate tour was great even though we ended up soaked - the hot chocolate helped a bit though. Jenny was great - gave us chocolates as well as some history of chocolate, and of Edinburgh as well.

“Good fun if you don’t have other plans”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

Maria is super nice, but considering other food tours I took in the past, this was the weakest.
Thumbs up: most of the stores give a discount off purchases made on the day.
Thumbs down: Only one of the store owners (Lickety Splits) was really nice to our group and seemed to appreciate our presence there. However, the Fudge place guy… run from him! - when he noticed our group wasn’t planning on buying anything he almost kicked us out.

“Good fun Great chocolate”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

I am an Edinburgh local and went on the tour with my flatmate. It was really good fun and we went to some places we didn't even know existed! Everywhere we went was lovely and our guide, Jenny, was friendly and knowledgeable. The tour could only be improved by having a longer stop somewhere in the middle where we could get a seat. There is a lot of walking so be prepared. I would recommend this tour to any chocolate fanatic.
