Experience the best chocolate in Boston

This walking tour highlights The Back Bay – affluent Boston at its best, boasting landmarks like Copley Square, the Prudential Center, and the Public Library. This historic area is rich in culture, architecture – and of course, fine chocolate. Learn the history and life of chocolate, how luxury chocolates are created, and much more. We can think of no more fun way to spend a Saturday morning among friends than to peruse boutiques on Newbury Street, stroll down Boylston Street learning about and enjoying chocolate.

If you’ve never taken a decadent chocolate walking tour, you’re in for a treat (lots of them actually). A friendly, outgoing expert guide will whisk you off into a world of exotic imports, closely guarded recipes and intimate tastings. The destinations are always carefully selected from the very finest each city has to offer – artisan chocolatiers, celebrated restaurants and more.

No matter how much you already love chocolate, you’ll appreciate it more deeply than ever after indulging in this one-of-a-kind experience.

Frequently Asked Questions:

How much chocolate will we eat? -- You will sample chocolate and enjoy chocolate experiences from several different shops, boutiques, restaurants and bakeries. You will definitely get your fill of chocolate!

How hard is the walk? -- You will walk at a moderate pace, so most reasonably active people should be able to handle our walk around Boston. Since the walk is amongst the most historic neighborhoods, the journey is as enjoyable as the destinations. Please wear comfortable shoes. Start to finish, the tour route is less than a mile.

Should I eat first? -- No. Believe it or not, the best way to taste chocolate is on an empty stomach. If you need to eat, try doing so at least an hour before the tour.

Are there any opportunities to sit? -- Yes, there is time to sit, sip and sample.

How many people will be in our group? -- Your group may be as small as 6 or as large as 14. You will get individual attention, but also the chance to talk chocolate with the new people you meet.

What should I bring with me? -- Did you know that tasting chocolate while drinking coffee, soda or alcohol can spoil your palate? For this reason it is strongly recommended you bring bottled water with you to cleanse your palate. And of course you’ll want money on hand in case you choose to buy more chocolate while on the tour. If you’re visiting during the winter, definitely bring an umbrella or raincoat.

Will there be bathroom breaks? -- Yes, there will be one bathroom break approximately midway through the tour.

Does the tour end at the same place where we begin? -- No, you will need to make the short walk back to where the tour began, or hop on the T, or in a bus or cab.

Are cameras allowed on the tour? -- Yes, you are encouraged to take photos of your favorite spots.

Why would a local want to do this tour? -- Even if you know Boston inside and out, you probably don’t know all there is to know about gourmet chocolate. This tour will show you the best chocolate spots in the city!

What if I am allergic to nuts? -- For those with nut allergies, please be aware that it will be your responsibility to inquire as to the presence/traces of nuts in all products sampled.
