It was FANTASTIC...
"I loved the walking tour from beginning to end. The places were great and all very welcoming and knowledgeable and our guide was wonderful (Nicole btw). Although, it was a VERY cold day we moved from place to place quickly and they were all very near each other. It was both romantic, fun and a great learning experience for me and my boyfriend. I would highly recommend it!" - gtothelyn

Frequently Asked Questions
What should I expect from this tour?
You'll taste some wonderful chocolate bon bons, learn how chocolate is made, and learn the different tastes chocolate can have. You'll also learn a bit about beer and how to pair it with sweets. All of our chocolate tours are led by food and beverage experts who are also licensed NYC Sightseeing Guides.
Will I learn about New York City on this tour?
Yes. Our guides are all licensed New York City Sight Seeing Guides, and they will incorporate important information about the neighborhood you are touring into their narrative. The focus of this tour, though, is to teach you about chocolate, desserts and beer.
What is the Upper West Side like?
The Upper West Side is one of the most charming neighborhoods in Manhattan. It's home to The American Museum of Natural History, The Dakota Apartments, Lincoln Center and many great shops and restaurants. It's a popular residential area with many great new eateries. The area is very family friendly.
How much food will I eat on the tour?
Quite a bit! This is a chocolate and desserts tour, so there won't be much in the way of veggies or protein! Try to eat a light lunch before the tour -- otherwise you might get a bit of a sugar rush! The number of stops varies depending on the day of the tour, but generally speaking, each tour will have at least 4 stops, with some tours having up to 6 destinations. Please keep in mind that our tours are not designed to offer balanced meals, but to be tasting adventures!
What if I have food allergies or dietary restrictions?
Please let the guide know what you cannot eat at the beginning of the tour. We'll do everything we can to arrange substitutes for you. If you need to skip the food at a particular stop, we'll make sure you get an extra sample at another stop.
Will I be able to drink anything on the tour?
Yes! The tour includes tasting four craft beers. In addition, at one or two stops along the tour, water will be available. Please bring a water bottle if you'd like. You'll be able to fill it up on the tour. Of course, a variety of beverages will be for sale along the way, so bring extra cash if you might want to pick something up.
Will I be able to shop at all on the tour?
Yes. There will be some time on the tour for you to buy chocolates, and other goodies. If you want to make purchases, please do so as soon as possible. Please let your guide know if you need a couple of extra minutes.
Is there a lot of walking on the tour?
The walking on this tour will cover about 1 mile total over a couple of hours. We will walk at a very leisurely pace, stopping often and eating, so you should have no problem. While during most of the tour we will be standing, there will be some opportunities to sit for a few minutes at a few of the places that we visit.
I'm from New York. Is the tour still good for me?
Absolutely! On our tours you will explore hidden places that you probably do not know of, meet purveyors and learn many new things about foods. You will see some of the coolest spots in the city, and experience your hometown in a totally new way.
Is there an age minimum for the tour?
Yes. Since there is beer served on the tour, all participants must be at least 21 years of age. Sorry, no children on this tour.
Are their restrooms on the tour?
Yes. Some of the stops on the tour will have a restroom that you may use. Ask your guide which venues have such facilities.
What happens if it rains?
The tour will take place in all light weather conditions. In rare circumstances such as a heavy snow storm, a hurricane, or other extreme weather when the tour venues can't open, the tour will be canceled, and you will be allowed to reschedule subject to availability.
Is the tour wheelchair accessible?
Some of the stops on our tour are wheelchair accessible, and others are not. However, we encourage anyone in a wheelchair to come on the tour, and we will make any necessary accommodations.
Where will the tour end?
The tour will end about a half mile north of the starting point -- possibly a bit farther depending on the day. Ask you guide for the closest subway or bus stop.
Should I give the guide a tip?
Yes. If you enjoyed the tour, we recommend that you give the guide (and assistant if it's a larger tour) a gratuity. They take pride in what they do and appreciate positive feedback and receiving a tip. What you tip is up to you. If you want a rule of thumb, $5 per person is an average tip.
