We recommend not to bring children under 12 as there are parts of the tour where there is a lot of information and it might be a bit too static for a younger child. There is also a lot of caffeine and this can be too much for children and for pregnant women. If you are with many children, it might be worth looking into a private tour where we can take you to stops that are more fun for kids.
The Chocolate Tour finishes about 1 kilometer from where the tour starts. There is paid parking close to the starting point and free parking if you are lucky. Details will be emailed to you once you book your tour.
We eat a light meal on top of nine chocolate tastings. You may even have seconds of the meal.
Restrictions Can you accommodate food restrictions on this tour? We can accommodate all types of food restrictions except diabetics on this tour.

The whole experience is completely worth the money. In addition to the tastings and education, you can really learn to appreciate how amazing chocolate is and can be. I highly recommend the chocolate tour. On our next trip to Montreal, we definitely plan on signing up for another Round Table Tour!
Explore the community behind some of Montreal’s most iconic dishes while learning about their deep roots in Montreal’s growth and history.
