    What a fantastic way to experience Melbourne and enjoy the finest chocolate Australia has to offer! Our guide Amanda had the knowledge of a true local and her relationship with the chocolate shop owners enabled us to indulge in the finest chocolate in the best venues. Not only do you get to partake in what you love most, but you are transported back in time through Amanda’s running commentary. Do yourself a favour and book this tour!

  7. Victoria

    Really enjoyed this tour. I booked it not really knowing what it would turn out to be, but thinking it would be a fun way to explore part of Melbourne. What we got was a really enjoyable, curated experience with a knowledgeable guide. We toured some gorgeous boutiques and the value was great. When you tally up what you are given in tastings and add in the two hours of the guide’s time, it really is worth the price. It appealed to the range of ages across our group – children and adults. We all had a very nice time.

This Melbourne Chocolate Tour is a sweet way to spend an afternoon in the Victorian capital! Over the course of the 1.45-hour tour, you’ll visit a number of chocolate salons and sample their delicious confections. There are six tastings in total, along with a yummy hot chocolate to wash it all down.

Your Melbourne Chocolate Tour starts at St Paul’s Cathedral or Melbourne Central (Saturday and Sunday only). There you’ll meet your knowledgeable local guide/chocolate devotee and the rest of your group. You’ll head off on foot at a relaxed pace to explore the CBD and visit various chocolate salons — many of which are roughly located between Swanston, Elizabeth, Flinders and Bourke Streets.

Two of the highlights of this Melbourne Chocolate Tour are a visit to the Block Arcade and Royal Arcade. Built between 1891 and 1893, the Block is home to many fine boutiques. You’ll have some time to admire the mosaic floor, the domed ceiling, and the fine Victorian heritage detail. The Royal Arcade is the oldest surviving shopping mall in the country, and again, the period finishes are truly stunning.

Depending on the day, chocolate shops you may visit include Haigh’s Chocolates (a prestigious family company that’s been producing chocolate since the early 1900s), the Ganache Chocolate Lounge in Collins Street, and sumptuous Koko Black — one of the city’s best loved purveyors of fine confectionery. At each store, you’ll learn the story behind the business and enjoy a specially curated tasting experience. A hot chocolate is served at one of the stops.

You’ll also have some time to browse the sweet delights on offer in each shop and take advantage of the exclusive participant discounts on offer. However, there’s absolutely no expectation for you to purchase anything.

Throughout this Melbourne Chocolate Tour, your guide will share interesting information about the history of Melbourne’s chocolate industry, but also about the city itself. Bring a notepad and pen to jot down the many cafe and restaurant recommendations you’ll pick up along the way!

While the itinerary may change depending on the day of your tour, one thing is absolutely certain — you’ll finish this experience with a better knowledge of the Melbourne CBD and an even greater love and appreciation for fine chocolate!
