    This was a brisk and lively tour of the history of Geneva told through the lens of chocolate, with lots of chocolate along the way! Our tour guide, Lily, was warm, funny and genuinely made an effort to make the experience comfortable.

    The tour was absolutely fantastic. Our tour guide Adriana was amazing, her knowledge of the city was incredible and her enthusiasm just made the tour. Getting a tour of Geneva whilst tasting the best chocolate the city has to offer was just the best way to experience the city, and you get a lot of chocolate, definitely worth the money! Highly highly recommend!
