About Chocolate Ecstasy Tours
From a love of chocolate and a love of London...
The first Chocolate Ecstasy Tour was back in 2005. Lifelong chocolate obsessive Jennifer Earle had discovered beautiful chocolate boutiques hidden away from London's busier streets and she wanted to spread the word.
What more joyous way to spend time than to walk between these places, tasting at each one and taking in the sights in between? All the while chatting with fellow chocolate lovers. Fifteen years of guiding tours has given us confidence that people who love chocolate enough to go on a chocolate walking tour are really the kindest and most interesting people.
Our groups are small and our relationships with the shop owners are special. We share stories as we walk and want to hear yours as well. We promise that every guest will feel completely full of chocolate / ice cream / sweet treats by the end of their time with us.
Since our public tours have mostly been on pause since mid-March 2020 we have been running online Mystery Chocolate Tastings. These are available to private groups with lots of chocolate information and each month we hold one that is open to any individual or group to join. The chocolates are new every month and from a selection of great British chocolatiers or chocolate makers.
Chocolate Ecstasy Guides
All of our team love chocolate. They are also super-friendly, genuine people who care about our guests having a wonderful time. As we only have small groups on our public tours we are able to tailor the information to what you are most interested in learning about.
