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!
Harrods of London installed a novelty in 1898: the world's first true escalator (to be fair, an inclined moving belt with metal bars for traction did make its debut two years earlier on Coney Island). The oddness of a moving staircase so unnerved many shoppers that employees were stationed near it with smelling salts and cognac to help revive those overcome with fear.
