Chicago Chocolate Tours’ expert guides squire eager eaters about the city as they taste unique chocolates, meet cocoa-craftsfolk, and learn about the history and architecture of Chicago. The walks, lasting 2.5–3 hours, traverse a choice of the Loop, the South Loop, Lakeview, the Magnificent Mile and Gold Coast, or Geneva, exposing tourgoers to neighborhood lore and helping sugar-loving explorers tack chocolate thumbtacks on their maps. Tours receive brief educations from cocoa-bean shamans both well-known and obscure, such as Teuscher, Sarah’s Pastries & Candies, and House of Fine Chocolates, learning about where lovingly crafted chocolates come from before receiving sweet samples at each stop. Though tours are designed with adults in mind, children are also welcome, sparing them from maniacal babysitters and rhyming cats in hats.

Chicago Chocolate Tours

Owner Valerie Beck and her team of chocophile tour guides lead guests on walking tours of Chicago’s historical bakeries and chocolatiers, narrating the history of beloved sweets while walking an easy route through vistas of Chicago’s stunning architectural heritage. While snacking on samples of sweets, guests learn about chocolate’s storied history, the cupcake’s rise to prominence, and how to guess the flavor of filling inside Oompa Loompas by sight. Tours convene throughout Chicago’s many neighborhoods, giving guests a sneak peek into Chicago's signature confections, boutique shops, and mobile sweet-vending trucks. The chocolate or cupcake jaunts provide the perfect setting for a girls’ day out or bachelorette party, showing tour-goers the sweeter side of the city without getting caught in construction sites of shoddily built gingerbread houses.

I had an awesome time at the Chicago Chocolate Tour yesterday! Our tour guide Brianne was awesome! She was very informative and super charismatic and friendly! She knew so much information and facts about Chicago and made the experience that much better! I definitely want to try the Tuesday tour as well and hopefully have her again as a guide! Thanks again for an awesome time! Oh, the chocolates and cupcakes were great too ;)

Kerrie the tour guide was great and the locations on the tour were perfect. It was nice to have a variety of quality stops. Argo Tea for a beverage stop instead of the usual coffee, was excellent.
