Chocolate Tour of New York

Chocolate Tour of New York

Product Review (submitted on September 24, 2015):
My wife and I went for the Chocolate Walking Tour on a Saturday at 5. Our tour guide Alex was waiting out front of Chelsea Markets well in advance and collected his charges efficiently. He told us we would be walking down out of Chelsea, through the meat packing district and Greenwich Village, and finishing just inside SoHo. It would have been better to know this ahead of time as we had driven and would have preferred to park near the end of the tour instead of the beginning but we made do by breaking up our walk back to the car with dinner. All of the chocolatiers were great, Alex set a comfortable pace and called ahead so each time our samples were waiting for us. Alex also gave us a tremendous amount of New York history as we walked. The tour was over 2 miles itself, which Alex covered in just over 2 hours, then the most direct route back to our car was 1.8 miles, so almost 4 miles total, 4 hours including a relaxing dinner. I recommend this tour to anyone who can handle the walk and likes both chocolate and history. Alex did pay special attention to the children in our group, making sure they were engaged. Bring a bag of some sort as you will definitely want to take advantage of the 10% discount you receive at each stop.
