A Wonderful Sugar Over-Load on the Chocolate Tour in Beverly Hills Review by Robert C
Your rating
My wife signed up for the two of us to do the Chocolate Tour on Groupon and I was very tentative about going. We started at Sprinkles in Beverly Hills and visited their cupcake store and next door ice cream store and had a wonderful dark chocolate cupcake and double chocolate ice cream cup. Then over to Beverly Hills Brownie Company where we got samples of two different types of brownies (and ended up buying six different brownies before we left as they were the best brownies I've ever eaten). Then over to Le Mervetty where we got Merveilleux, a confection with milk chocolate shards, whipped cream and meringue which was absolutely wonderful. Then over to Edelweiss Chocolate Factory where an "I Love Lucy" episode was filmed and Ronald Reagan bought his gummy bears. We toured the back where the candy is made and got a sample of a chocolate covered marshmallow. Then finally to Sugarfina where we sampled several types of candies and purchased some candies to take home. At each, we other got background about the company from our guide, Lyndia, or the owner of the store. By the end we had a very happy sugar over-load.

I told my wife we need to go out and do more of these. I intend to go back to several of the stores again as I consider them real finds with incredibly good offerings. Very, very fun and well done. I'm seeing a number of reviews where people showed up and the tour was cancelled. I would be very upset if that happened to us, but our experience was terrific. Lyndia was gregarious and knowledgeable.

Great Customer Service Review by Julie

I want to thank the staff at Great Foods for helping me put together my sister's Bachelorette party. We had been planning for weeks and when I went to make the reservation, the date we had picked was booked. They worked with me to get us in another tour the same day so our plans could go off without a hitch. Thank you for all your help!(Posted on 3/6/2014)
Chocolate Tour of Beverly Hills Review by Gisele L. (a Yelp Member)

What a great tour! My mom and I went on a this tour today and we had a blast! Our tour guide, Derek was wonderful. Derek was so knowledgeable, I learned so much!

My favorite part of the tour was Voges! It was so glamourous and the truffles were absolutely delicious. Sprinkles was another favorite of mine. The tour was fun and informative and we got to learn about and see a lot of Beverly Hills while enjoying and learning about the great chocolate shops that the neighborhood has to offer.

I would definitely recommend this tour to my friends and family and everyone should request Derek as their tour guide! He was so friendly and fun!

Disappointing Chocolate Tour of Beverly Hills Review by Anonymous
Your rating
Today we went on the Chocolate Tour of Beverly Hills that we looked forward to for a long time. Unfortunately our experience was so bad that I couldn't wait to go home to write this review. Hopefully no one else will have to suffer like we did.

Before the tour, I did a very thorough research on the tour which includes parking, route, types of food we will have and the review of the stores we will visit, etc., I even printed out the route according to the information provided on their website. Based on the so-called "map" published on their website, we were supposed to visit the following seven stores:

Spinkles, K Chocolatier, Edelweiss Chocolates, Bouchon Bakery, Vosges, Beverly Hills Brownie Co. and Teuscher.

But in reality we only went to six stores, which were:

Sprinkles, Edelweiss, American Tea Room, Lette, Vosges and Teuscher.

we were very disappointed that we walked right passed Bouchon but didn't get to go in at all! Bouchon was the one stop that interests us the most, but we couldn't go! I'm not sure if it had anything to do with the fact that we had a discounted tour offered by Living Social or not, but our tour definitely was not what they promised! American Tea Room was a very nice surprise for me because I drink tea every day, but I am not sure if anyone else in our group felt the same way, especially when all of us expected to eat chocolates/cupcakes throughout this tour!

We were 10 minutes late when we arrived, so I called their 800 number on our way there. They stated, on their website, that "If you are running late, please call the Great Food Tours office at 1-800-609-9321, and they will attempt to put you in contact with your tour guide." It took me three phone calls to get someone to notify our tour guide Derek about the situation, and I was told Derek got my cell phone number and will call me to make an arrangement.

When we arrived at the sidewalk in front of Sprinkles, Derek was just leaving there with the rest of our group. We had to run to catch them. When I asked whether or not he got my phone number, he said he didn't. Even though I was told Derek would take the same route described on their website, but in reality he didn't. Therefore I was so glad we made it there right when they were about to leave, otherwise we would have wasted our money/time to look for him on the street!

He didn't say anything about the first stop (Sprinkles) we missed, so I had to ask him if we could get a sample later, he agreed to take us back there at the end of our tour.

There were six children in our group, every one of them got a free sample at each stop. We were confused because they mentioned, on their website, "Small children may attend the tour free of charge. However, each tour guest receiving their own samples must have a paid ticket to the tour." If the tour was for people who are 12 years or older and there are only 20 people in each tour group, those children that came with the adults were definitely unpaid guests, why did they get free samples? This explains why Sprinkles ran out of samples for us when we followed Derek there at the end of our tour. It was so unfair to us paid customers!

The worst part was at the end of the tour, Derek did not lead us back to where we started. He lead us to some street corner and we had to wait there for a good 20 minutes after he suggested "gratuity will be appreciated." Out of 26 people, there were only four of us offered him tips. In spite of the fact he offered those children free food, those adults who came with children did not tip him at all!

When we followed him back to Sprinkles, he waited for 15 minutes before asking for samples for us. Then he started talking business with the clerk there, he totally ignored us. I noticed a box sitting on the counter and asked him if that was our replacement samples, he said, "oh, yeah." and continued discussing business with the clerk. We felt like we were begging for free food even though we didn't get what we paid for!

Derek is not only irresponsible, but also unprofessional. When I asked him why we didn't get to go to Buchon Bakery, K Chocolatier, and Beverly Hills Brownie Co., he said they were new in LA, and are still negotiating with those businesses, that's why we couldn't go. He also said those businesses were not worth going. If that's the case, they should correct the information on their website, instead of misleading people to believe they can do more than what Great Food Tours could promised.

There is a lot more Great Food Tours can do to improve the customer service of their chocolate tour, if they cannot deliver, they should be honest about it. Integrity and Honesty are the best policies for starting their new business in LA.

We do not recommend this tour and hope no one else will get mislead and mistreated by them. (Posted on 1/5/2014)

On February 8, 2014, HIP (Hesby Involved Parents) will host our 8th Annual Gala, a fundraiser to benefit the K-8th grade students of Hesby Oaks Leadership Charter, located in Encino, California. We anticipate more than 200 people in attendance this year. The highlight of our Gala is a silent auction. We are asking for support from companies like yours for donations, which will be used as part of our auction. 100% of the proceeds raised through our auction are crucial in maintaining educational excellence for the Hesby Oaks students, as well as help fund programs at our school which have been cut from state and school district budgets. Your support would be greatly appreciated.
