Finest chocolatiers and pattisiers Melbourne has to offer
Join your local tour guide on a chocolate walking tour of discovery. Many of our guides are qualified teachers and therefore know how to engage a group of children.
We can also tailor the content of our tours to support particular curriculum requirements; for example, we can focus on sustainability, or the patisserie or some of Melbourne’s history. Or, we can just do our normal tour! It’s up to you.
Uncover some of Melbourne’s hidden gems
Meeting your local tour guide we’ll uncover some of Melbourne’s hidden gems you were previously unaware of.
The tour commences with your local guide spending some time getting to know the group and explaining the itinerary for the walking tour. They will also spend a few valuable minutes talking about 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 chocolate walking tour of Melbourne.
Over the course of the tour we will walk up to two kilometres and visit amazing chocolatiers. All our partners offer couverture chocolate (the good stuff!). Some of the stores we visit are international favourites, however most are exclusively Australian and many are unique to Melbourne. They all have their unique tastings and experiences. While the specific partners we visit can vary from time to time we can guarantee amazing chocolates and incredible experiences on every tour.
On the chocolate walking tour we will visit some of Melbourne’s most iconic arcades, chatting about the history and sharing some of the fascinating stories they hold and navigating down hidden laneways.
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.)
Initially we just need the date and time you’d like to book and an estimate of the number of students attending the tour. We will then create a booking in our system. About a week before the tour date we will confirm the final number of attendees with you and any dietary requirements in the group
We can either accept payment by credit card or we can send an invoice to the school. Please let us know if you require us to quote a purchase order number.
