    Stop: 2 hours -
    This walking tour for the sweet tooth’s amongst us! Discover some of Melbourne’s most iconic dessert bars and luxury chocolatiers as we indulge in the theatre of some of the most incredible desserts you’ll ever taste. Oh, and some wine matching of course! Sweet treats around Melbourne’s city centre Our Chocolate and Desserts walking tour is the perfect combination of chocolate and magic sweet treats around Melbourne’s city centre. Join your local tour guide for a delightful stroll as you discover some of the finest chocolatiers and pattisiers Melbourne has to offer. We stroll through Melbourne’s famous laneways and arcades sampling chocolates, macarons and hot chocolate and experience a dessert that, quite literally, looks like a piece of art! Enjoy our food tour while discovering some quirky Melbourne history and find out why Melbourne is one of the world’s most livable cities. What happens on the tour? Meeting at the beautiful Block Arcade, you’ll join your local tour guide and your small band of fellow dessert lovers. Each tour has a maximum of 12 participants so you have the opportunity to connect and share the experience with both the guide and the rest of the group. You’ll usually find other locals joining our tours, also eager to uncover some of Melbourne’s hidden gems they were previously unaware of. Over the course of approximately three hours we will stroll about two kilometres (1.2 miles) and visit six of the most secret chocolate and dessert bars in Melbourne. All of our partners are exclusively Australian and many are unique to Melbourne and all with their unique tastings and experiences. While the specific partners we visit can vary from time to time we can guarantee amazing food and incredible experiences on every tour. The tour commences with your local guide spending a few valuable minutes teaching you the correct way to taste chocolate. Yes, there is a right way and a wrong way and once you know how you’ll want to tell everyone else! Once armed with this knowledge you’re ready to embark upon your dessert & chocolate walking tour of Melbourne. We will wander through some of Melbourne’s most iconic arcades, chatting about the history and sharing some of the fascinating stories they hold. We’ll navigate down hidden laneways while your local guide points out some of their favourite haunts for drinks and dinner. As we arrive at each chocolate store we’ll spend some time getting to know the story behind the business and at some we are lucky enough to meet either the owner or the manager of the store (sometimes they are one and the same person!) before we enjoy our specially curated tasting experience. There is then time to browse the store and take advantage of the exclusive participant discounts on offer before we compare notes on our favourites and continue our discovery. (Please note that all tour visits are pre-planned and there is no expectation to purchase.) The tour includes a lovely sit down tasting experience where we rest those weary taste buds, enjoy a well-earned drink and share our favourite experiences from the afternoon. Inclusions Your own personal and very passionate chocoholic guide will share their own local expertise and, of course, Melbourne’s finest chocolate secrets Six chocolate / dessert stops All tastings and drinks minimum 7 chocolate tastings plus: hot chocolate macaron tasting fine dining dessert experience with matching wine Chocoholic Survival Kit, including: tasting bag – for any leftover tastings (if there are any!) bottle of water “I’m a Chocoholic” pin badge Chocolate tour map (so you can find your way back to your favourite spots) special in store offers to keep the tour intimate a maximum tour group size of 12 people
