We had a great tour that taught us a lot about chocolate and San Francisco. My husband and I took this tour about ten years ago, when the company was fairly new. We thought the tour was excellent then, but I would say it is even better now. Delicious and highly recommended.

Family of 5 with 3 kids ranging in age from 9-15, had a great time learning more about chocolate and tasting new things. Our guide was friendly, knowledgeable, and interacted easily with everyone on the tour, from the kids to the adults.
