The Chocolate Indulgence tour offers guests at least six decadent tastings at local chocolatiers. Entertainment journalist Sandro Monetti leads the Celebrity Insider tour, sharing his behind-the-scenes experiences with A-listers and highlighting the more than 40 filming locations of movies such as Argo, Pretty Woman, and that one where Humphrey Bogart amasses a hill-shaped stockpile of beans. During the Hollywood Sites and Bites tour, which initially involves some walking, guests head to the Melrose area and down the Sunset Strip for six culinary tastings and glimpses of landmarks such as the Viper Room and the Capitol Records building.
The Chocolate Indulgence tour departs from the Original Farmers Market; the other two tours leave from the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel. Patrons should arrive 15 minutes prior to the scheduled departure time.
