Taste MANY single origin chocolates, including many made in Montreal, which has become a mecca for some of the world’s best chocolate! Award-winning chocolate is on the menu, as is the visit to a chocolate factory with an intimate meeting with the chocolate maker. We will also do a tasting in the style of a wine tasting with some of the best and most unique chocolate the world has to offer.

This tour has about 2.5 kilometres of walking or about 1.5 miles so please wear appropriate foot wear and dress for the weather conditions of the day.
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.
We can accommodate all types of food restrictions except diabetics on this tour.
The tours are held rain, shine, or snow. In the event of inclement weather, we will be able to go inside many of the establishments on the tour. We also provide ponchos in case of sudden weather changes or if you do not have your own umbrella. However, we advise to check the weather conditions for your days event and dress appropriately.
