Tour guide was very good and funny, highly recommend . Chocolate was on the heavy side though. Belgium chocolate wins every time

We had an absolutely lovely time on this tour with Noa! I live in Geneva, and I had a friend visiting, and what better way to spend your Saturday morning than wandering around Geneva eating chocolate and hearing tidbits about the history of the city? This tour had actually come recommended by word of mouth, but I wanted to do my due diligence looking at reviews. The excellent recommendations and reviews did not lead me astray! From the second we arrived at the meeting point, Noa had a huge smile on her face: she went above and beyond to get to know each of us (and remembered our names, where we were from, and tidbits about us that she used to personalize the tour, even beyond our chocolate preferences!). She was an incredible and actively engaging guide the entire 3+ hours — time flew by! I have lived in Geneva for months and had never heard some of stories she shared, and she shared them in such a way that they were memorable and connected to other pieces of the tour, other aspects of Swiss history, …and chocolate. Truly well woven together. As for the chocolate, let me tell you: I have the biggest sweet tooth out of anyone I know. I live for this. I honestly was worried that the chocolate tour wouldn’t be enough to satiate my palette. In fact, I’m used to “making my own chocolate tour” so that I am sure to get enough. However, to my pleasant surprise, it actually was enough, and I felt quite fulfilled by the end. It helped that at some places, it wasn’t just chocolate pieces/truffles but we also got to try hot chocolate and a piece of chocolate cake. Also, at the last stop on the tour, we got to choose our own flavors to try, so there was a bit of a chance for personalization there too. At the previous places, Noa explained why we were trying each of the things we were trying, including some famous award-winning ones! So it was the best of both worlds. The locations to visit were clearly very well thought-out. Also, a few of the places gave a 10% discount if you bought from their shop, just for having been on this tour. While I live in Geneva and was thus less excited about something like this, it was likely very cool for tourists to also take a little boat ride on the Lake Leman. And Noa shared some cool history about some of the tourist attractions or interesting eye-catchers/monuments around the city. As a student, the tour was definitely a splurge, so I would say it was a lovely experience once, probably won’t be worth it for me to do it a second time but such a good option if it’s in your budget and want to explore Geneva through the medium of chocolate! So memorable and so glad to have done it!

Worth it, very friendly staff, it's not just about the chocolate you know the city and some hidden gem.

Noa was not only a guide but an excellent storyteller who wove her knowledge of the city into the history of chocolate. She was entertaining, kind and amusing throughout the day. I’d strongly encourage anyone with a morning to spare to take this tour.

My boyfriend and I have taken many trips around the world over the past few years and have gone on a lot of tours but this one stands out as the BEST! Our guide was Noa and she was SUPERB! passionate, kind and very knowledgeable. Not only did we learn about the history of chocolate and taste a variety of swiss chocolates but we also enjoyed hearing about the history of the city of Geneva. This tour is an absolute must !!!
