The Chocolate Tour of Chicago

Come join your expert tour guide for a delightful stroll through some of the Chicago's most decadent dessert boutiques and chocolatiers along the Magnificent Mile on the Chocolate Tour of Chicago! The chocolate industry is a steadily growing, $50 billion-a-year worldwide business! Chocolate is made from cocoa beans, the dried and partially fermented seeds of the cacao tree. Roughly two-thirds of the entire world's cocoa is produced in West Africa, with 43% sourced from Ivory Coast. The earliest evidence of use traces to the Mokaya (Mexico and Guatemala), with evidence of chocolate beverages dating back to 1900 BC. From ancient aztec recipes to post modern takes on the dark stuff, from a World's Fair winning praline to gold infused valrhona cupcakes, The Chocolate Tour of Chicago will take you to chocolate paradise and beyond...chocoholics everywhere will love this tour!

    Chicago Chocolate Tour Review by mfar77
    Your rating
    Our family thoroughly enjoyed our tour ably guided by Kerri. She not only provided an eye opening history of chocolate but introduced us to lesser known local brands while weaving in Chicago history and architecture at the same time. We took the downtown loop tour which centered on the iconic Marshall Fields / Macy's building where we discovered Smith and Donovan confections among others. We met Valerie, the tour owner, who provided her own advice and suggestions. We then walked over to a french patisserie, Toni's, the new Fanny May store artisanal line, and ended up at Argo Tea. Each establishment had samples of unique chocolate confections to try. Some of our family's favorites were the chocolate macaron at Toni's and the white chocolate mint tea at Argo. We had lunch before the 2 hour tour which started at 12:45 pm, and of course, skipped dessert!(Posted on 2/26/2016)

    Went on the tour on a cold Sat. in Feb. Our guide, Seth, was entertaining and kept things moving. We had a Groupon and it was worth the price. Don't think I'd pay full price as the samples were small and shopping was encouraged. One suggestion: have business cards or brochures available from the various places we went. We did have a good time and recommend the tour. Especially Vosges!!(Posted on 2/26/2016)

    Great job by Seth. Kept it lively and filled in space with all sorts of stories about Chicago. Even though group seemed large (21) he made sure to reach out to each individually and made us feel like a private group without over-doing it. Only surprise was amount of cake. I assumed it would be more chocolate candies. Not bad, just wasn't what I expected.(Posted on 2/26/2016)

    This chocolate tour was unexpected in its choices for locations, with the first 2 stops being doughnuts and cake balls. But these stops proved perfect to illustrate the diversity of chocolate products from the (mostly) independent providers in the downtown area. The only exception to this was the Ghiradelli factory store. Frankly that stop was out of place and should have been excluded. Finally, Seth was an amazing tour guide who provided humor, local flavor, architectural tips, cultural knowledge, etc. Six out of 5 stars for Seth and 4 out of 5 for the tour (drop the factory store..)(Posted on 2/26/2016)

    The Chocolate Tour we took today was Great. We had a wonderful tour guide by the name of Brent Spahn. He was very organized and also gave us history of the city as we walked to our next location. The chocolate was delicious. We had six different stops. You will taste a lot of chocolate, so come hungry. After the tour you are so full. I would definitely recommend this tour. It took 2 hours. You will do some walking. I'm a senior citizen and had no problems with the route we walked.

    Seth was a very good guide -- he kept the tour on a comfortable pace, enough time to enjoy each treat but no time wasting. We tried doughnuts, cupcakes, cake balls, gelato, and also chocolate candy. The samples were small, but by the end, we couldn't imagine eating any more since the treats were so rich. We were lucky to have good weather for walking.

    What a fun way to discover multiple spots in the city to sample delicious chocolate concepts!! Nice to have both mainstays like Giardelli's and teeny tiny bakeries like More Cupcakes that you would otherwise walk past without seeing. Our tour guide, Seth, was fantastic...knowledgeable and hilarious; despite windy weather in the low teens, our group had lots of fun and energy was high. Wonderful experience in every way!!

    I come to Chicago every year around Christmas time as an annual tradition with my father and we always look for something new to do so we decided to try the chocolate tour. Our tour guide was Seth and he was fantastic! He made sure to talk to everyone personally within our group and get to know you and where you are from. He would stop throughout the tour to talk about some of Chicago's history which was a fun added surprise. Plus he is a comedian so it made the tour much more enjoyable to hear some jokes. We went to 6 locations to try different chocolate, places I would never have even thought to stop at, each was better than the last. Great tour, highly recommend it. I will be doing the wine and cheese tour and hopefully Seth is our guide for that one too! (Posted on 12/14/2015)

    Awesome Chocolate Tour of Chicago with Seth! Review by Leigh B

    My boyfriend and I went on the Chocolate Food tour of Chicago and it was fabulous. It was definitely a lot of walking but doable on a nice day. Instead of just having truffles at every stop we had a variety of cupcakes, gelato, truffles and chocolate cake balls. I really enjoyed the variety of chocolate samples we received at each shop. I would suggest that you come on an empty stomach because I was stuffed by the last chocolate shop!

    Our tour guide Seth was fabulous. He made an effort to get to know all of the people on the tour and did a great job of suggesting things to do around town. His humor and knowledge of the city made the tour fun as well.

    Make sure you have a flexible schedule because online it said it would take about 90 minutes but we ended up going over two hours.

    Overall, I would HIGHLY recommend Great Food Tour's Chocolate tour!

    This is a great walking tour around the downtown area, with some great chocolate mixed in. We bought doughnuts from Glazed and Infused (banana nutella pretzel!!!), and a mixed box of cupcakes from More. Loved the cakeballs at West Town Bakery (and the bar in the Berkshire is something to see!)! Seth was funny and very personable, really knows how to work a crowd. Gotta say that the Ghiradelli stop is kind of a throw away, really just a package store and the sample you get there is the same you'd get if you'd stopped in by yourself.

    My sisters and I took the tour on Sunday with Eddie and really LOVED it! We are huge chocolate fans and have lived in the Chicago suburbs all our lives, but we went to places we had never been and tried all kinds of delicious treats along the way. It was a great pace, a lot of walking but Eddie was really entertaining us with history information and stories! He really made it a great time for all of us and we will be sure to book more tours and request him as our guide. It's fun to go check out places and areas you normally wouldn't get to see. Eddie was a lot of fun to be with and really spent a lot of time with the whole group talking and including everyone!

    You can call me a fan of chocolate, just don't call me late for dinner. I am a giver and last week I gave my gf the gift of chocolate. Not going to lie, I like it too. This tour was great. We learned a lot about the city (the old water tower place, the Chicago Flag, and Michigan Ave) and ate delicious cakeballs (vegan!), donuts, cupcakes, gelato, and truffles. Our guide Seth, who I call White Chocolate because he's white and it's a chocolate tour and he is like a smooth athlete, was so informative and funny. My gf had a great time and told me it was the best gift ever and she hopes we move in together soon and I won't even have to get rid of my toys. Go on this tour. Great time! And now it's steak time! G2G!!

    I came to Chicago for the first time to visit this really cute guy I have a crush on. He decided to take me on a chocolate tour of Chicago. Very sweet, pun intended. Randomly,, The guy I came to meet happened to look just like our tour guide, Seth! Seth was a gracious host and taught us all about the architecture in Chicago. He also brought us to some chocolate shops off the beaten path. My favorite place was More cupcakes. That 14 karat gold leaf on the Valrona cupcake was amazing! I am definitely coming back to Chicago for several reasons!

    I'm a local and I decided to have a "Staycation" weekend in my own city last month, so my friend and I took the Chocolate Tour. It was so much fun! Admittedly, I'm a chocoholic, so of course, this was right up my alley! Seth Davis was our tour guide and he was very funny and knowledgeable. It's tough to say which chocolate was my favorite, but Vosges Black Pearl Truffle was up there. I would recommend this to friends in and out of town.

    I'm about to book this tour again--went several month ago and had the best time. It was a perfect snowy Chicago day which made the variety of chocolate we got to indulge in taste even better--and the tour guide Seth was so great about telling us all about Chicago and the specific shops we ate in--he made sure to keep it funny and fun--would highly recommend this tour!!!

    Great Chocolate Food Tour - Chicago, IL Review by Afreen A
    Your rating
    I went on this tour with a friend of mine and it was honestly such a great experience. I never thought a 2-hour walking tour could be filled with such great places but I was wrong. Our tour guide Jason was so great, big shout out to him because he really made sure we were enjoying ourselves at every location we went to. The desserts were delicious, if it weren't for this tour I probably never would have walked into these places because 1. They seem expensive but they're very affordable and 2. They're cute small places in the city that don't scream "We have great food" but were nothing less of just that. Just some advice make sure to bring cash with you so you can tip your (amazing!) tour guide at the end. Definitely a great experience, my friend and I are waiting for the Chicago weather to go back to somewhat normal so we can plan our next tour !

    Our guide Seth Davis (Or Seth David, but I think it was Davis) was so fun. The guy had us laughing all day and it turned out to be a lot more fun then we had anticipated. It was organized, too. Obviously some thought went into the overall organization of things so the tour goes smoothly.

    I have to check back in and see how often this actually happens, I want to plan to bring my Gram-Gram out. She'd like it and I think she'd have a lot of fun. Plus she thinks Ralph Macchio is super handsome and Seth kind of looks like him. HA!

    Seth was a fantastic tour guide. We learned about buildings, history, and food. I'm especially impressed with his ability to talk to everyone in the group and make personal connections. Our chocolate tour had cupcakes, cake balls, gelato, and doughnuts! We had a great time loved walking in all three areas of Chicago! Groupon had awesome deals, and we definitely got our money's worth.

    My friends and I purchased the tickets for the Great Food Tour through Groupon and thought, hey, for $20, if it sucks, we'll just walk off the tour. Not the case!

    We were greeted by our tour guide Jason at the meeting spot and immediately could tell he was fun - super easy going and friendly. By the first stop, we knew we had made a critical error: eating lunch first. There was so much food! Not being from Chicago, it was a great way to not only sample food but also find out about restaurants we normally would not have tried (or known existed). Pizza, hot dogs, pretzels, tacos, paninis, cupcakes - all delicious!

    We never felt rushed at any of the spots and there was even time to order and enjoy margaritas with our tacos. By the end of the tour, we literally had a bag full of food to take with us (and due to the smell of the leftover Chicago hotdogs, I'm sure the fridge in our hotel room will never be the same). Also, I can't rave enough about Jas (yes, after being with him for just mere moments, we decided we were close enough to give him a nickname like we were old chums - that's just how much fun he was). I would definitely recommend!

    This is for the Chocolate tour, which was a ton of fun (I mean, come on, it's chocolate!!!). I was with a good group of people and the tour guide, Greg, was really nice and informative. He had alot of fun facts about the places we went to as well as facts about buildings we passed, which made the in-between walking parts more interesting. 6 stops with treats at each one. Vosages was a total highlight and the cupcakes from More are the BEST in the city. If you like chocolate and walking, you'll have a blast.

    I took the new Great Food Tour of Chicago. My friend and I had an excellent time. Our tour guide was very friendly, funny and informative. There was plenty of food to eat and everything was delicious. We even had food left over to take home. We had fun at each place, especially Su Casa where we had our own private room and enough time that we all had one of their amazing margaritas. Well worth the $25 a ticket we spent. Highly recommended.

    I bought the Groupon for a Chocolate Tour in Chicago and took a friend for her birthday and we both agree it was the best money spent. Out Tour Guide Seth was fantastic! He was funny, charming,knew tons of information about the city, and completely went out of his way before our tour began to get us a sample at a bakery that would be closed during our tour. The samples were extremely generous at most places and we loved the variety of places. We got to sample different chocolate goodies at 6 places. For a chocoholic I definitely got my fill and was not wanting for more by the end. I would definitely do this again!! Thanks Seth for a wonderful tour!!(Posted on 3/24/2014)
    average but needs better customer service Review by lisa
    Your rating
    overall the tour was OK and the guide Greg was interactive with the group and gave some history. I live in the suburbs but am in the city sometimes and still learned some new landmarks and things. But I would not pay full price for this tour ( got mine discounted on groupon)

    my complaints- I feel the online reservations and block out dates are a bit confusing to use so after I got my reservation, I called and e mailed a few times over a period of weeks to confirm. I got no response either way for a long time( there was no Chicago phone or address contact listed). When someone finally did get back to me, they said all calls are routed through Phillipines. ( I guess this would be outsourcing as we know it).

    Also, we did not go to several places listed on the website and had substitutes instead. It said we would have Aztec hot chocolate and we never had any hot chocolate. The guide said the website was not up to date on places we are going. Well, it should be. On the visit to Ghiardelli, we got only the sample that every person coming through the door gets.

    I believe this tour just started this year in Chicago. I feel there are kinks to be worked out and customer service could be improved.(Posted on 11/18/2013)

    overall the tour was fine but if I did not have a groupon for reduced cost, probably would not have done it for full price. Our guide Greg was good and tried to give a little history of the buildings etc. And even though I am from the general area, good to see the surroundings of the area and learned some new landmarks

    My 2 complaints were that it was a bit difficult to book online and confusing for closed out dates on reservations. So I tried to call or email to confirm my reservation and nobody responded to either for a good while after a few attempts. There is no Chicago phone or address listed for contact. When someone finally did get back to me, they said all calls are routed through Phillipines- I guess this is outsourcing.

    Our tour was cut a little short because of the fact that we could not go to two of the places. We did get double samples at two of the locations though, so it all worked out. The tour guide still made it a nice way to spend a couple hours walking around the Loop, and he didn't just stop and make speeches, he spoke to us. I would have gave five stars but his jokes were very corny.(Posted on 11/11/2013)

    Cannot recommend this tour Review by Maureen Holowinski
    Your rating
    Our tour was overbooked (supposed to have no more than 15 people, and we had 23 to begin with, and then our tour guide let 2 additional people join who were too lazy to wait for the next tour group which began 15 MINUTES after ours). Tour was PAINFULLY slow- after an hour and a half we had only made it to 3 places (tour is supposed to last 2 hours with 7 places), at which we left because we just couldn't take the standing around and waiting anymore. It seemed like it would have been a nice tour if there wasn't such a huge group, but I think the fact that this company overbooks their tours says a lot about the quality of experience they are trying to give to people. Not only that, but the tastings at the three places that we did go to were pretty minimal. My advice is to visit these 7 venues on your own and buy things yourself- you'll pay much less and have a much better experience.(Posted on 10/19/2013)

    I have a few complaints about this tour. First, the online listing is wrong. There are 6 tastings and the tour does not include Godiva or Teavana. Instead the tour goes to Ghirardelli where there isn't even a special sample. Another complaint is that 20 people is far too many for the size of these venues. I would say 10 would be a better maximum. In summary, we did not pay full price for this tour and if we had, I would have been extremely upset. The chocolate was good, but I could have gone to the venues alone and enjoyed them more.(Posted on 10/13/2013)
    disappointing! Review by jennifer
    Your rating
    Pretty awful tour.They need some immediate changes. Our group felt like trick or treat beggers. It is now obvious the tour does not pay the chocolate providers anything. We were barely spoken to at vosges-their help was rude. we did not have a doughnut or hot chocolate stop so there were only 4 scheduled stops. Leonidas, Goddess, and More were prepped for us. The manager lady from Goddess represented her firm well! The tour added Ghiradelli on so it would not seem so short but no one told Ghiradelli. Then we saw our guide take the Ghiradelli manager to task that the tour did not have info and wasn't given anything a normal customer would be given. NOT Ghiradelli's fault. The Ghiradelli manager Scott dealt with this situation REALLY well and gave an impromptu speech and more samples. Our guide was nice and meant well but was very unprofessional discussing this in front of the group. She also needs to be trained to deliver more information about the chocolate establishments. It seemed she was embarrassed that the tour was so bad with so few stops. Trained correctly she would be a fine guide. I would also recommend investing in one's company with pleasant jackets or sweatshirts for the guides. Some guides arrive looking not very together. In all it seemed a great internet get rich quick for someone who is investing No money in the care for the tourist, the chocolate samples or training for the staff. I bought 5 tickets to celebrate my nieces birthday. $165 for a crazy experience with minimal chocolate. Also note that everyone is paying different prices, $20,$25, $35 and $50.(Posted on 10/10/2013)

    Our 'tour guide' said about a paragraph to us the entire time. We also skipped Godiva. At the tea store, we got a tiny sample of chocolate tea...and I'm guessing the store paid our tour guide to bring us there for traffic into the store....the cupcake sample was a mini cupcake for sale for $1.00 in the store...the doughnut was also a mini doughnut. The only sample worth more than about $3 was at the grocery store. All in all...take this list, google map it and walk yourself to the stores and buy your own samples. (Each person on the tour did get a 10-15% off discount if we bought additional chocolate items.) not worth $50 a person and not worth $20. Tour guide didn't provide any inside scoop or information we couldn't have gathered on our own. (Posted on 10/7/2013)

    Our experience started when the tour guild told us the tour was leaving 15 minutes later than when she actually left. Luckily we saw her leave & we hurried to catch up. We weren't the only people she gave the wrong time to! Next she started leading us across Michigan Ave. & Ontario when the walk time had completely ran out. There were 17 of us & we were holding up traffic. Once on the other side she looked back & said "did everyone make it? No one got hit?" Really!! Later entering Water Tower she was walking so fast that our group got separated. My friend slipped & fell on a spill in the mall. We still had to hurry so we didn't loose our guild. Luckily a couple offered to split up so that we didn't have to hurry to fast. The women stayed with us & the man kept up with the tour & helped us to find our next stop. She completely skipped Godiva although it was listed as a stop. At the end she said that tips were welcome!! Don't leave 15 minutes early for a tour!!
    As of right now I have called twice & e-mailed but I have not heard from anyone. The tour was fun & the c chocolate was good but our guild was totally unprofessional. (Posted on 9/9/2013)

    When we checked in for the tour we were told that we would leave at 12:15. The ticket said 12:00 but the tour guild said 12:15. We went to wait the 30 minutes in the shade. Luckily I looked up to see what was possible our group walking down the street! We had to almost run to catch up! They left at noon. We weren't the only people that were given the wrong time. Later in the tour our guild stepped into the street when dont walk sign was up. There were no more seconds of safe walking left. She led all 17 of us across the street on a red light. When we got to the other side, she looked back, laughed, and said "did everyone make it? No one got hit?" Really!!! She walked so fast that when she entered Water Tower we could barely see her ahead of us. Someone on the tour slipped on some ice cream dropped on the floor and our guild was so far ahead, she never knew. A couple volunteered to split up so we could walk slower with the wife and the husband would keep an eye on the guild. Also, we skipped Godiva, although it is still listed as a stop. The chocolates were very good but the guild was not!!!!! I sent an e-mail today & places two calls but I have not heard from anyone yet. (Posted on 9/9/2013)

    The least informative and least substantial food "tour" I've ever participated in Chicago Review by Maroon
    Your rating
    Disappointed in the tour as the guide, Jeffrey (who never introduced himself to us) made no effort to explain about the neighborhoods despite the nice areas around Chicago we get to walk to nor did he give preliminary background of each places before we enter the stores: the tour guide's only function in this tour is to walk in front of the group and herd participants from places to places, some of which provided small samples sizes that could've been given to any storefront passer-by for free. I felt really awkward as he asked for tips at the end as I usually made it a point to tip hardworking service providers 20% but felt this is one of those times where I am deeply disappointed with the quality of the service and find myself walking away with no gratuities or even saying goodbye as I honestly felt there was absolutely nothing he does that added value to the experience and small (generic & questionably ingenuine) talk saying "you guys are awesome" or "you guys are great" are certainly not what we look for. Maybe the group was too big but he didn't even try and how can a food tour operator be so greedy to accept a group size that big. This could be the result of bad management or lack of training and not actually the tour guide's fault. Having helped marketed a popular chocolate brand and taken many other different food tours around Chicago & different cities + actively a part of the Chicago's tourism scene and the food tour industry myself, this is very insulting to the tour industry and not worth the time and money even though I bought this tour through discounted deal (Amazon local $19). I hope this tour will improve and have more substance in the future. I hate to be unsupportive of small businesses but hope that this review will serve to improve this particular player in this industry.(Posted on 8/19/2013)

After repeated calls to Great Food Tours, we were finally told that our guide was in the hospital but that no other guide was available. This is inexcusable, as no one in our group was called or emailed that the tour was cancelled. Do NOT book with this company!!!(Posted on 6/17/2013)
