For those on a budget, I thought I would share my ideas for a do it yourself Chocolate Tour around Melbourne. I was in the city (Melb CBD) recently and I was really shocked to see that a private chocolate tour would cost my family [of 4] $120 for a 1.5-2 hour guided tour! I am not sure if there are free ones ? but here are some ideas of places to visit, in order of my personal preference:
Cacao Fine Chocolates
Theobroma Chocolate Lounge
Others include Lindt & Koko Black but I don't like these cafes as I think they run on their reputation and unassuming tourists!) Also, Max Brenner but I think they're more of a chainstore than a real chocolate shop.
Better go on that diet now.... :)
