Chocolate Tour of London

Chocolate Tour of London

Product Review (submitted on December 12, 2015):
I bought this tour as part of a birthday present for my chocolate loving partner. He had no idea what we were doing or where we were going until we actually arrived at The Algerian coffee shop where he thought we were stopping for a coffee.
Alan was our enthusiastic guide and he was knowledgeable and interesting not just about chocolate but about an array of extra bits of information including how to spot a brothel, Royal family members' favourite chocolate, how much it would cost you if you broke the most expensive tea set in the East India Tea Company shop and who is the only man to be allowed to whistle or run through the Burlington Arcade.
The tour lasted about 3 hours and despite the drizzle, it was most enjoyable. We had visits to 6 different places including of course, wonderful chocolatiers, coffee shops and Fortnum and Masons. We sampled at least 1 chocolate sample at each shop and they were amazingly filling! Every stop offered a 10% discount if you chose to buy anything. Alan, our tour guide, was charming and even pointed out the buses with posters of him on an ad. I recommend this tour for its interest and different chocolate samples. Definitely good for chocolate heads and for finding our about London Trivia.
