Great tour of the city! The tour with the bus through the principal attractions was nice and comfy. The walking part was a bit short but André, our amazing guide, gave us suggestions on where to go and what to visit in the next days. Finally the Lindt home of chocolate was absolutely worth it! Overall I'm happy with the experience!

Great way to immerse and enjoy the Lindt Home of Chocolate Factory at your own pace and schedule! Plan ahead to find out accessible means of transport to get to the factory either by train, bus and ferry as part of your chocolate journey!
