This tour was launched in 2005 from a love of chocolate, London and meeting people. Now there are a team of passionate guides who will ensure that your time spent with them is delicious and entertaining.
The tour starts in one of London's most exclusive venues with a rich and indulgent hot chocolate and pastry whilst your guide shares with you an introduction to chocolate and the tour ahead. After a private tour of the venue's constantly-changing art collection (and a bathroom break) you'll be out on London's streets for part two.
Wandering through Mayfair, St James', Piccadilly and Soho you'll take in incredible architecture and learn a little more about each area. All of the venues you'll visit are expecting the group and delighted to share their best treats with you, as well as a discount if you want to buy some for later (or as a gift).
By the end of the tour you are guaranteed to feel completely satisfied with chocolate, or else your guide will get you more!
In that paragon of travel documentaries, National Lampoon's European Vacation, there is a scene in which Ellen Griswold (Beverly D'Angelo) forgets to lock the door on the shared bathroom in their London hotel. A man comes in to brush his teeth and is pleasantly surprised when Ellen—washcloth over face and believing the man to be her hubby, Clark—calls to him from the bathtub to join her. Shock and hilarity ensue. The accidental intruder was played by none of ther than Robbie Coltrane, 16 years before he embodied Hagrid in the Harry Potter films.
