A chocolate tour or chocolate tasting is
the perfect excursion for a birthday celebration, hen party activity, team
building event, client entertainment or just a gathering of friends looking to
do something different and delicious!
"thanks to Jennifer and her idea of a chocolate and wine tasting event we had our most successful event in the past 3 years (both in terms of the number of people who attended and the variety of teams represented...Jennifer’s enthusiasm in answering the audience’s questions, made this event extremely popular with the participants."

Private tours cater up to 14 people with one guide or groups of up to 26 if you are happy for the group to be split into two separate groups for part of the tour. During the tour you will have time to speak to your friends or colleagues. Because we’re always on the move you’ll have a chance to mingle naturally and you’ll never be stuck talking to the same person for too long.
You can choose from our range of tours, or let us know your requirements and we can create a bespoke tour for you.

Chocolate Ecstasy Tours appeal to all ages and have no fitness requirements beyond being able to manage a gentle walk. Even non-chocoholics have been converted to tasting along the way and have enjoyed the more educational and cultural side to the tour. Above all, the tours are light hearted and fun and our guides care about making sure everyone has a great time.
“I recently did a Chocolate Ecstasy tour for a friend's hen weekend and it was excellent! We walked round London, getting some information about the places we passed on the way, and the pace was perfect- nice and leisurely to enable us to have a good gossip on the way, but enough light exercise to help digest the chocolate we'd eaten. A fab tour, definitely recommended, and good value for money too!”
