We had a tour with Stephanie and she was very friendly and knowledgable. We had a great time on the tour and all the chocolate was very tasty. All the shops we went to had welcoming owners and good samples. Stephanie was great and let us explore the shops after our sample as well!

This was one of the best tours we have been on. Our guide, Jenny was absolutely great. Great knowledge and a very easy style for all ages on the tour. She knew all about each shop, the chocolate each one used and topped it off with a small history of Edinburgh.

An interesting tour visiting unique, high quality establishments, each with a different twist. Heaven for a chocoholic. The guides, Julia and Blair, made the history of chocolate interesting. All the shops were very welcoming, offering good discounts.

Thoroughly enjoyed the chocolate tour! Interesting facts along the way and really amazing signature chocolate. Wrap up if going this season. Maria and Brian were really helpful and approachable. Thanks!

Really good time, very hard not to buy everything I had a taste of. The guide, Maria was great.
The itinery has changed with no visit to Harvey Nics or Henley's. However we did go to the new Coco Chocolate and have a sample of some Valvona Corolla truffles instead.

We went on the tour yesterday and had a ball! It was a smallish group of 9 people and so we had the chance to chat as we walked. Our guide, Maria, was a lovely girl who was very knowledgeable and kept interest high by keeping things short and snappy and also was very humorous! Venues were super and chocolate tastings even better! Try it, you'll love it!

I went to the chocolate tour in Edinburgh with my friends. We had a really great time and our guide Maria was excellent! Maria told us a lot of interesting facts, chocolates and other sweets and cakes were tasty. I think it is a great and entertaining way to spend your Sunday afternoon with friends or family!

My friend and I went on the tour last weekend. I was amazed at the great places I discovered while on it and the best part was of course getting to taste the yummy chocolates at each venue. I loved Bibi's bakery, which I'd hear about and Lickety Splits, which amongst other things sells truly Scottish sweets! But the tour was great mostly due to our wonderful guide Jenny. She was very knowledgeable and welcomed the questions we had along the way. I've been on a few tours these past few months and I have to say she's one of the best guides I've had the pleasure to go on tour with. I'd definitely recommend it!

A booking was made for Thursday 12th September 2013 at 3.00 pm. The guide failed to show up. Contact was made with the tour who advised that the tour had been cancelled! We had not been notified! Very disappointed and we will not be booking for another date just in case the same thing happens again! Buyer beware as they say!

Eating chocolate - two words made in heaven. So a trip around Edinburgh tasting chocolate - nothing more to be said. As most of the tour involves walking between venues this really is a fair weather tour; you need to be mobile & wear comfy shoes. All this aside the visits to the various shops were fab and the chocolate and goodies to die for. Our guide, Jenny, was very pleasant and knowledgeable. Thank you.

Had a lot of fun on this tour. You get to try chocolates, truffles, fudge, sweets and brownies! Opportunity to buy chocolates on the tour too! Walking tour so you don't feel so guilty! The guide was great - so friendly and helpful. Definitely recommend this tour!

We only paid £13 each with a deal, but it was not worth £13 !!!!! One f the shops had closed so that left 6 places. We received 1 chocolate in Patisserie Valerie, 1 chocolate in Hotel Chocolat, 1 chocolate brownie in Bibi,s, 2 minuscule chocolates in Harvey Nichols, scrapings of fudge in the fudge kitchen, and a cube of macaroon and tablet in Lickety Lips. It did say we were getting a a macaroon in Patisserie Valerie but that did not happen. Not a lot for your money, would rather have treated myself to a huge box from Thorntons !!!!!

Do not buy this tour! Utter waste of money! Guide had little knowledge
Of chocolate and certainly no passion for it! One of the shops is closed
Down and there were little or no tastings at others. Stay away
