A great chocolate walking tour! Something different to do and the chocolate desserts were great! We had a wonderful guide- Alexis! She was great- gave history and was an excellent speaker and did a wonderful job of keeping the group together! Would do it again!

Had a wonderful time viewing the mural arts in and around Central Square and food tasting at great local establishments. The tour guide, Sol, was the best. I’m definitely taking more tours in the future.

For ninety minutes, we were able to enjoy many of the shops around Harvard Square, and learn some more about chocolate around the world. Our tour guide was also very knowledgeable about chocolate, and made it a fun and enjoyable experience.

Thank you so much for your great review of our Harvard Square Chocolate Tour! We loved having you! Our website has detailed information about parking, but yes parking garages in Harvard Square are unfortunately expensive.
