    This walking tour is for the true chocolate fan! Our Melbourne Lanes & Arcades Chocolate Walking Tour is the ultimate chocolate expedition through Melbourne’s secret lanes and arcades and will lead you into a state of chocolate bliss! Join your local tour guide for a delightful stroll as you discover the beautiful chocolatiers tucked away down the back streets and laneways of Melbourne. Indulge in sublime tastings from melt in your mouth pralines to a palate delighting adventure of contemporary pairings of tea & chocolate and wine & chocolate! Proudly unleash the chocoholic within at every decadent turn along this food tour, discover some quirky Melbourne history and find out why Melbourne is one of the world’s most livable cities. What happens on the tour? Meeting at the beautiful Block Arcade, you’ll join your local tour guide and your small band of fellow chocolate lovers. Each tour has a maximum of 12 participants so you have the opportunity to connect and share the experience with both the guide and the rest of the group. You’ll usually find other locals joining our tours, also eager to uncover some of Melbourne’s hidden gems they were previously unaware of. Over the course of approximately three hours we will stroll about two kilometres (1.2 miles) and visit six amazing chocolatiers. All of our partners are exclusively Australian and many are unique to Melbourne and all with 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. The tour commences with your local guide spending a few valuable minutes teaching you 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. We will wander through some of Melbourne’s most iconic arcades, chatting about the history and sharing some of the fascinating stories they hold. We’ll navigate down hidden laneways while your local guide points out some of their favourite haunts for drinks and dinner. 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.) The tour concludes with a lovely sit down tasting experience where we rest those weary taste buds, enjoy a well-earned drink and share our favourite experiences from the afternoon. Inclusions Your own personal and very passionate chocoholic guide will share their own local expertise and, of course, Melbourne’s finest chocolate secrets Six chocolate stops All tastings and drinks minimum 10 chocolate tastings plus: – tea matching – fine dining dessert experience with matching wine – patisserie & coffee Chocoholic Survival Kit, including: – tasting bag – for any leftover tastings (if there are any!) – bottle of water – “I’m a Chocoholic” pin badge – Chocolate tour map (so you can find your way back to your favourite spots) special in store offers to keep the chocolate tour intimate a maximum tour group size of 12 people

Tour guide Olivia was bright, bubbly, enthusiastic & informative. Interesting, out of the way experiences plus more well-known chocolatiers. Excellent variety of tastings from 4 venues & an unexpected bonus of afternoon tea - Colombian hot choc with a twist, cakes & ice desert.
