    This is an incredible tour! Our guide, Maria, was brilliant! She provided great context to the history of chocolate with the added sites of Old Geneva. I would highly recommend this tour! We’ll worth the 3 hours.

    Delicious chocolate and amazing tour
    Giulia_Z, Sept 2023
    I was traveling alone to Geneva and had the possibility to join this amazing chocolate taste tour. It was my first time in Geneva and it was a special way to discover the city. Victoria, our guide was really passionate and kind to answer any questions. I really had a nice time and tasted delicious chocolate, we also had a short trip on a boat on the lake! Victoria was also very good at keeping a friendly and joyful atmosphere. Recommended!
    Response from Host, Sept 2023
    Dear Giulia, Thank you so much for the wonderful feedback! Would love to see you back in Geneva around a nice cup of hot chocolate ;) Hope you had a nice flight back home. Victoria
    Chocolate in the Old Town - Do It!
    John_M, Sept 2023
    Our guide, Lily, was a terrific host! She has an enthusiastic story for all the Old Town highlights, and of course all the ‘chocolate stops’ were scrumptious! The time flew by and we are very glad we chose this tour.
    Fun and yummy tour!
    Suzanne_S, Sept 2023
    All the chocolates were amazing. Our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. Learned a lot about chocolate, and some history. By the end we couldn't eat anymore chocolate and were able to put the chocolates in a to go bag for the last couple of stops to eat later. You definitely get your monies worth with the amount of chocolate you get!
    Fun lesson in history and chocolate
    Victoria_M, Sept 2023
    Lilly was an excellent guide! We learned a lot of interesting history in between all the delicious chocolate.

    Chocolate, history, and more!
    Chase_W, Aug 2023
    My husband and I loved this tour! Our guide Adriana was wonderful. She was a great story teller and kept everyone engaged. We visited many artisan chocolate shops and learned about the history of Geneva on the way. She also had many surprises in store for us! I have a dairy allergy and did not expect to be able to eat anything on the tour, but Adriana called the shops and had them pull dairy free options for me! I ended up being able to enjoy many treats. We highly recommend this tour! Wear your walking shoes and bring a water bottle
    Response from Host, Aug 2023

    A recommended tour in Geneva
    Wa_Y, Aug 2023
    The chocolate tasting was an unforgettable experience. All the chocolate recommended were of excellent quality. Marie was a fantastic guide who is able to introduce the old town in detail and relate to the chocolate development and culture in Geneva.
    Great chocolate
    Shannon_J, Aug 2023
    The tour guide was great. The chocolate was amazing. I think the 3 hours is a bit too long but overall it was a good time
    Accommodating of Peanut Allergy
    Renee_B, Aug 2023
    Our Tour Guide Andrea was very knowledgeable and very accommodating of our son's peanut allergy. She would check with both myself as the parent and him as the teenager who values his self-determination on this. She made sure he was comfortable at every stop, giving us the information and letting us choose. As it turns out, this was my son's favourite part of the trip!
    Delicious tour!
    Samantha_R, July 2023
    This tour was great! Lillian taught us so much about the history of chocolate, Geneva, and chocolate in Geneva. In addition to being so nice and informative, Lillian took into account all our needs (tissues, water, bathrooms), including some tricky allergies. Delicious chocolate! Highly recommend.
    Response from Host, July 2023
    Dear Samantha, Thank you for your kind words! I am very happy to hear that you enjoyed discovering Geneva through chocolate with me. Take care! Liliana from Local Flavours Tours
    Amazing
    Lewis_S, July 2023
    Our tour guide geci was amazing, it was only 2 of us on the trip which gave us a lot of information about the town and chocolates surrounding it, we went into about 5 chocolate shops and had samples in them all, and if you can’t manage all the chocolate they provide a bag you can take them home in. definitely worth paying the price and a must do when visiting geneva
    Response from Host, July 2023
    Dear Lewis and Tarrie, I had such a wonderful time showing you and telling you about Geneva and Local Flavours’ chocolates. I am very glad you got enough chocolate to make your last day in Geneva a memorable one. I hope you had a nice way home and wish you all the best. Sincerely, Ceci from Local Flavours Tours
    Delicious with just the right amount of chocolate
    BENJAMIN_D, July 2023
    The stories that Regina shared with us regarding everything chocolate. She was fun and very peofessional.
    Response from Host, July 2023
    Dear Benjamin, I really appreciate your review, thank you so much! It was a pleasure to be your tour guide to discover amazing chocolates and the history of Geneva. All the best, Regina from Local Flavours Tours
    Awesome guide, chocolate stops and chocolates. Just needed more drinks!!
    Brenda_T, July 2023
    Regina was the highlight. She was delightful, knowledgeable and so sweet. Loved the shops and chocolates. But needed water !! I am a chocolate fanatic. It would have been nice to pair with one glass of wine and offer water or a stop to buy water! I could not even taste the chocolate on the last 2 stops as I was so thirsty!
    Response from Host, July 2023
    Dear Brenda, I cannot thank you enough for the time your took to leave such a wonderful review! I loved being your tour guide in Geneva, to discover history and chocolate. I wished the rest of your trip with your family went well. All the best, Regina from Local Flavours Tours
    Could not have been better
    Heather_M, July 2023
    This was absolutely one of the best tours we have ever done. We loved the amazing blend of history, culture, chocolate, getting to know our guide and other participants, and walking the city. Maria, our guide was personable and knowledgeable. Even in a group of 15, she was able to project where the group could hear without sounding like she was yelling. Maria was a great storyteller. We could not believe the sheer number of stops for chocolate. We loved every stop and all of the history. With the tour being three hours, we were also able to meet several other guests and learn about their travels as well. This made for an even more enjoyable experience. We would absolutely recommend this tour.
    Worth your time and money…. And many wonderful chocolate treats!!
    Ana_U, July 2023
    The tour’s Guide was knowledgeable, approachable and willing to help. Good leadership skills. She went the extra mile in supporting my special circumstances (I was carrying on a suitcase all the time) and she showed kindness and practical support towards me. My advice: don’t carry on any heavy object (luggage, etc.) as you will have to endure the long walk and the Old Town’s cobbled streets, stairs and different ups and downs levels. My suggestion: Include a real “chocolate’s factory” in the tour.
    Fun Chocolate Learning
    Ellen_T, July 2023
    Tasting in the parks was a fun experience as we learned the chocolate history whilst soaking in the old city environment.
