What's not to like about chocolate?
By Kevin G on October 7, 2015
We purchased a CUDO voucher for The Chocolate Tour and had no problems at all booking a date and time to redeem it. The company even sent a reminder the day before. We started at the Cup Cake Family in Red Cape Lane, on the old Queen Victoria Hospital site, where we were met by our guide Neeyati who was very friendly and enthusiastic. You could tell she really enjoyed her job.

After sampling a cupcake (the banana & peanut butter cupcake was delicious) we headed off to Chocolait in the Melbourne Emporium for the first of our chocolate tastings. I tried a lemon myrtle flavoured chocolate which had a really different lemon tang about it.

For there, it was a short walk to Cacoa Lab in Drivers Lane where we sampled the hot Chili Chocolate drink. Sensational - definitely my favourite. The chocolates, macaroons and éclairs weren't bad either.

Next it was on to the Royal Arcade and a visit to Koko Black then a short visit to the Block Arcade where Neeyati provided some early history of Melbourne before crossing Collins Street to visit Ganache Chocolate before finishing up at Chocamama in Degraves Street opposite Flinders Street Station.

At every stop we got to sample some delicious chocolate. Most places offered a discount if we wished to make a purchase but there was never any "hard sell" and you never felt obligated to buy anything.

We both had a great time. It was lovely just wandering through the alleys and arcades Melbourne discovering some really hidden gems.
“Fine chocolate appreciation
By Frantosh on October 6, 2015
What better way for a mother and her three grown up daughters to spend time together than participating in a leisurely 2-hour walking tour of some of Melbourne's CDB chocolate establishments! The group commenced at Spring Street Grocer which is an upmarket delicatessen with a spiral staircase leading down to a cheese room. What a hidden find! Out front of the shop we sampled a spoon of choc gelato and were given to a brief and interesting lesson in choc appreciation. At the Cup Cake Family in the QV we enjoyed our choice of mini cupcake. Delicious! On to Chokolait in the New Emporium for a chat by the choc patissier and a fine glossy sample, and on to Cacao Lab for a taste of warm choc chili sauce with a kick! At Koko Black in The Causeway we sampled a mouse chocolate and finished off in Collins Street at Ganache for a nutty praline. All very rich and tasty! The tour guide was informative about Melbourne's history and knew her chocolate! But, after two hours of choc samples, we really needed a coffee and something savoury!! A memorable tour which gave us all lots to talk about later and we became the envy of many.
Fun and tasty tour of Melbourne and its chocolatiers
By Travellingaussie2013 on October 6, 2015
As a local I was pleasantly surprised by the number of high quality chocolate shops which are found in easy walking distance in Melbourne's CBD. Six different stores left me full of tasty treats. From sleek Koko Black to playful Cocoa Lab to cute as a button Cupcake Family, this tour was provided plenty of new delights. Juliana was a knowledgeable and upbeat guide, who provided us with fun facts about the history of chocolate and Melbourne as well as insights into the story of each chocolatier.
Whenever I am asked by visiting friends for tourist ideas for Melbourne I'm at a loss- now I'll have a great recommendation to make!

Chocolate walking tour
By Paulyne D on October 6, 2015
Went on a Sunday early September with my daughter. Had no trouble booking...was a Mothers Day/Birthday present. Started in Spring St. with a taste of great gelati. Visited 6 places in all with several chocolate places and a cup cake place....delicious mini cupcake ! Our guide Jaan was excellent with his knowledge of Melbourne. The walk was easy....even with my arthritic ankle and knee. The deal we were given was basically half price through a Groupon Deal....not sure it would be great value paying full price as tastings were small but we had an enjoyable day.

Lip smacking good!

We had a wonderful time strolling through the Melbourne CBD tasting awesome chocolate from authentic Melbourne chocolatiers. Our guide Neeyati was so knowledgeable and regaled us with historical & architectural facts about Melbourne that we had never known of. So it wasn't just about the chocolates....she told pointed out things that we had never noticed even though we live in this wonderful city. She gave us information about events as well and all in all it was great value added. Strongly recommend this tour to all :) I'll be doing it with my mum soon!
