Melbourne Lanes, Arcades and Chocolate Walking Tour

This walking tour is our premium encounter for food lovers and sweet tooth alike. A delightful opportunity that reveals the best couverture chocolate in Melbourne and relish in amazing patisserie over some uniquely crafted exclusive experiences. Chocoholics on our Chocolate & Desserts walking tour are treated to uniquely crafted exclusive experiences with our partner venues and we ensure you'll end the tour with amazing knowledge and appreciation for the passion and craftsmanship that leads to the fine flavors you'll appreciate on the tour.

Meet at the magnificent Block Arcade, where you'll join your local representative and your small group of fellow foodies. Each tour has a maximum of 12 participants so you have the opportunity to join and share the knowledge with both the local representative and the rest of the group. You'll sometimes have other locals participating in our tours, determined to unearth some of Melbourne's hidden gems they were previously unaware of.

Around the course of more or less three hours we'll walk about two kilometres (1.2 miles) and visit five of the most undisclosed secret chocolatiers and dessert bars in Melbourne. A majority of of our partners are solely Australian and are original to Melbourne, all with their exclusive tastings and experiences. While the specialized partners we visit will differ from tour to tour (depending on their opening hours) we ensure incredible food and amazing ventures on every tour.

The tour starts with your local expert teaching you how to properly taste chocolate for a few valuable minutes. There are correct and incorrect methods for doing things, and once you know , you'll want to advise everyone else! Once equipped with this information, you're prepared to commence your Melbourne dessert and chocolate walking tour. While discussing and sharing some of the amazing tales of the history, and origins they contain, you'll stroll through some of Melbourne's most famous arcades. Your local guide will reveal some of their prized locations for drinks and dinner as we travel through unknown alleyways.

As we enjoy our specially arranged tasting experience, we will spend some time learning about the history of each chocolate shop as we arrive. At some, we may even be fortunate enough to meet the chocolatier, the store's owner, or the manager (sometimes they are the same person!)

At the end of the tour, you have the opportunity to look around the establishment and take advantage of the special guest discounts. (Please note that all tour trips are scheduled in advance and there is no pressure to procure any merchandise.)
