In two hours you get to taste chocolate from three very good stores. Doing this, it’s cheaper and easier to try something from three of Zurich’s best chocolate stores. You also get to learn some about the history of Zurich while you’re doing it.

We had a great time on the tour. It was as much a traditional tour as it was a chocolate tour. Maria was a very enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide. I think the one word I would use is balanced to describe the experience. If you want only chocolate, then you may consider an alternative. But if you want a fun experience in 2 hours, with an easy walk and fun guide, then please consider this one at a very fair price.

What a great way to spend 2 hours of easy walking around Old Town Zurich. We visited 4 chocolate shops and had delicious samples in each store. We did purchase some very pricey chocolate on the tour, but our guide told us afterwards that the Swiss chocolate in the local grocery stores are just as good. Live and learn:) Our guide, Victoria, did a fantastic job and filled us in on some city history as well as a great suggestion for a lunch spot. Would highly recommend this tour for a fun Saturday afternoon.

First, Zurich is beautiful and we enjoyed the walking tour. Also, the chocolates we tasted were delicious and plentiful. We had our fill of chocolate for sure.

I was disappointed in the lack of focus and knowledge of chocolate by the tour guide. It was billed as a Zurich history and chocolate walking tour. We did walk. We did eat chocolate. We hear a lot of Zurich and Swiss history. However, it wasn’t really a tour that had anything to do with chocolate. The guide didn’t know much about about the chocolate shops we went to and could not speak about the candy to any level of detail.

We had fun and we enjoyed purchasing our own lovely chocolates, but I wouldn’t do this tour again. I like food tours where they actually talk about the food.

We were looking for a budget friendly way to see Zurich when we came across this tour; both of us were very excited.

Meeting the group was easy enough.

Our tour guide was friendly and pretty knowledgeable, he just didn’t seem super invested in the experience. Which I understand, I am sure he does this a lot. He guided us through the city and gave us some really interesting history while being able to munch of some treats.

My only real issue, is that for the price we paid, I was expecting more than just three chocolate stops, and was expecting a little more than the small bits we got from each shop. Maybe it’s because most things in Switzerland are expensive, but it being our first excursion of the trip, we were expecting more.

This isn’t a denunciation of the tour, it was a ton of fun and I would do it again - it’s more of a tempering of expectations.
