This was an AMAZING tour! My husband and I did this tour with our guide Noa in June 2022. We both would HIGHLY RECOMMEND doing this tour; especially one of the first days your in Geneva as Noa recommends some great spots and you’ll want to go back to a couple spots for some chocolates or pastries later! Noa is extremely knowledgeable and not only gives history of chocolate but a history of Geneva. She’s engaging and passionate about what she does which makes the tour even more enjoyable! This was one of our favorite activities that we did when in Switzerland! You will not regret it! Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge and love of the city Noa! ✨

This tour was great! Margot was our guide and she was amazing. She told us a lot about the history of chocolate as well as the history of Geneva. She was very knowledgeable, kind, and fun. We got to try chocolate from quite a few places and all were delicious. Some of the shops offer you a discount as well if you choose to buy something from their shop after the tour. Lots of fun, definitely recommend :)

Fantastic tour! We learned about the history of Geneva and the history of chocolate while sampling artisan chocolate - it was a perfect afternoon! Our tour guide was Noa, and she was very engaging. Thank you for a wonderful introduction to Geneva!
