    Our guide, Noa, was excellent. She was so friendly, lively and full of energy! She made sure to speak to everyone on the tour and helped them feel included. As for the tour, it was nicely paced and well conducted. I particularly liked the history part of it. If you want to do some walking in Geneva, and love chocolates and cakes, this tour is a good choice.

    My wife and I did the chocolate tour with some friends with Noa. Her energy and pride as a Geneva resident shines through and made the tour enjoyable. She delivered the history in a fun and engaging manner. The 3 hours flew! Noa was very knowledgeable and helpful not only on the chocolate spots, but also Geneva as a whole! She recommended some great fondue - banis des paquis!! I’ve done tours and other countries (chocolate included) and none have matched Noa’s excellence! I highly recommend booking a tour and it’s family friendly too!

    We only had one day in Geneva and chose this tour. It did not disappoint!!! The most deliciously informational tour of the city. The hot chocolate and chocolatiers were indescribably delicious in their taste. I enjoyed the boat ride on the lake as well. The guide was engaging and fun. Truly a superb experience. My teenage son also greatly enjoyed it and was entertained and intrigued the whole time. 5 stars. Two thumbs up. I’d do it again! Just be sure to get there early to get a parking spot if you are driving your own car. Parking is tricky in the city.
