Excellent adventure
Andrew_C

Today My adventure was a chocolate and desserts tour within Melbourne. The tour started when the bubbly Tonya greeted us. Her personality was infectious. We started the tour with a brief introduction and description of what we could expect. Throughout the tour Tonya shared her knowledge of each of the destinations and history about the area. This was a very pleasant way to spend three hours whist also tasting some amazing treats. Truely worth the effort. Andrew

Our guide Julia was excellent & was very informative on both the lovely arcades we visited & the chocolate also. Would highly recommend this tour for anyone who enjoys GOOD Chocolate, as we visited places you would probably never be aware existed.

This was a chocolate tour that shook my taste buds! Definitely NOT a "try a different chocolate at each shop" type of tour - we experienced chocolate SENSATIONS at every place we visited. Really, really worthwhile - loved it!
