We had an excellent tour guide, Violette, that taught us a lot about the history and culture of Geneva, the beautiful old town, and the different types of chocolate. It was delightful, and a nice walk. The boat ride was quite fun too.

Violet was a very knowledgeable guide and offered a lot of interesting and historic info. about Geneve as well as the Chocolate!!! Time flew and it never seemed like a 3 hour tour. The short boat ride was fun and Old Town was wonderful. I had no idea there was so much to learn about Chocolate and that is played such a prominent role in Geneve's history! Thank you, Violet!!! Great job!!! :)

Our whole family really enjoyed this tour. It was very interesting, with lots of fun information about the history of Geneva and Swiss chocolate shared as you walk around to different chocolatiers. Our guide, Mei, was wonderful! She was very friendly, and made a point of getting to know everyone. Our kids really liked her.

I decided to book this tour for me and my 8 and 11 year old. What a lovely surprise! Our tour guide name was Mei and she gave us a lot of insights not only about chocolate but also about Geneva. She also was super friendly with the kids!! Chocolate tasting was delicious, we visited 5 well known chocolateries and we got the idea of why Swiss chocolates are so famous! I would not stop recommending this tour!!!

This was a great tour, our guide May was wonderful. She told us a lot of information about the history of chocolate. We had a total of 5 tastings, 3 were shops we visited and 2 our guide brought something out to us, because the shops were too small for our group. Everything was wonderful and it was nice that the tour included a chocolate fondue tasting, a chocolate pastry tasting and various chocolate candy tastings. At some of the tastings the chocolates were pre-selected for us and at other tastings we were able to pick our treat which was nice. The tour really gives you a greater appreciation for Swiss chocolate. I would definitely recommend this tour. Only comment for the tour operator is in not informing us that a discount coupon that was given to us was only good for that day. One of the chocolate shops offered a 10% discount if you returned to purchase something which was great, but we were not told that it was only good for that day. Please make sure that other tour guests know this.

Excellent tour- so many samples and really high quality. More importantly this tour gives you not only the history of chocolate but Geneva history as well. The time flew by and it was great to meet other like minded people. May, the tour guide was wonderful- friendly and knowledgeable. If you do one tour while in Geneva it should be this one!

Highly recommend this tour. Rosalia is outstanding. Took us to chocolate stores we would never have visited on our own.
• Submitted 25 Mar 2018
We had a wonderful 3 hours with Rosalia who explained the history of chocolate combined with the history of Geneva. We walked to 5 different chocolate outlets both in the old city of Geneva and the newer side and tasted wonderful chocolate with an explanation of what we were tasting and how it was made. We highly recommend this tour for anyone who likes chocolate who doesn't? and wants to enjoy 3 hours in Geneva with a knowledgable and personable guide.
