This is a nice 2 hours walk around old town, learning about the history/culture of Zurich, and tasting chocolate from 4 very nice stores. Bring water or some drink! The chocolate was really good but you can only have so much before you need to wash it down with something. Our guide was very nice and knowledgeable.

A really recommended tour of you love chocolate, don’t mind walking at a quick pace and love tasting great chocolate. The guide Peter was excellent, really friendly and very informative about Zurich old town as well as the chocolate we tasted.

Our guide Victoria was wonderful. She engaged the group immediately to get to know us as individuals and to tell something about ourselves. She was constantly weaving Swiss history into the tour as we walked from one chocolate locale to the next. She answered all our questions and we were an inquisitive group. As we concluded our tour, sitting at a table, sipping hot chocolate, we all shared our thoughts about the tour and what we learned. We were from different countries and different backgrounds, but for a short time, we were able to enjoy the moment on the same level. The macarons, truffles and hot chocolate were delicious, too! o the next

Our guide was great - a grad in history, lots of good stories and really personable. The chocolate bit breaks up the tour - not a necessity but still lovely. Really enjoyed it and wouldn't have seen as much of the city without it would never have thought of venturing up those alleys/steps...really enjoyable few hours.

The guide was amazing. She really knew her stuff and the added little titbits she told on the way made the walking tour superb.

This was a nice tour both for the information about the city as well as hitting the chocolate shops! Our guide Daniel was knowledgeable and enjoyable. We did quite a bit of walking and it was a bit rushed. Definitely worth taking for a variety of reasons.

Guide was on time and spoke excellent English. We sampled four different chocolates, with time at each stop to purchase if we wanted. Tour was helpful for getting our bearings on the Old Town and we found a number of places along the way to revisit. This is a fast paced 2 hour walk, with very little stopping or In depth explanations of the historical sites, which was okay for us, as we'd done another day tour of the city. My only suggestion to put this tour into 5Star would be to include one stop that was a sit down venue, with hot chocolate.

Emre was a great tour guide. He knew the city very well and definitely let us indulge on the sweets! You are outside the entire time walking so wear comfy shoes and wear layers.

The tour guide did a good job with what she was given although she was very quiet. There were three chocolate stops, Sprungli, Oro Chocolate and Teuscher. We got about 3 pieces of chocolate. There were 22 people on the tour. The ticket itself says it included "entry/admission" to Sprungli. However, this is a store, everyone can go in? I assumed that we would get some sort of special admission or tour of Sprungli, that was not the case. Chocolate at two of the stops were passed around by the group, meaning everyone was either reaching into the same bag for their piece of chocolate or using their fingers to break a piece of chocolate off of a bar, disgusting. Many were not pleased by this method of passing around samples. All together, there was not nearly enough chocolate on this tour to call it a "chocolate tour" and not nearly enough of a city tour to call it a "city tour", this needs to be re-worked in my opinion. Did not feel we got our money's worth.

Nothing against the tour guide and good information that he provided, but I think the name of the tour is very misleading. We expected mostly chocolate sampling with some city tour mixed in and there was very little of that. It was basically a city tour with 3 stops to try some chocolate samples. We would have been better off doing the free city tour and hitting chocolate stores on our own.
