One walking tour that has seen marriage proposals, Valentine’s dates and sweet afternoon getaways is the San Francisco Gourmet Chocolate Tour. Travelers with timeshare rentals in the bustling city of San Francisco can set aside three hours on a Saturday afternoon to wander the city waterfront to Union Square, tasting the delectable goods that some of the nation’s finest chocolatiers have to offer.
Chocoholics may feel they have entered a dreamland on their walking tour, stepping foot in Ghirardelli’s first-ever chocolate boutique, which opened during the Gold Rush. Samples of dark chocolate, assorted truffles crafted with farmer’s market ingredients, champagne truffles, specialty ganaches and a blind chocolate tasting showcasing 225 different bars are a mere sampling of what visitors will sink their teeth into on this gourmet tour.
Receiving high accolades from the Travel Channel, which deemed the three-hour stroll one of the nation’s top food tours, Trip Advisor, CNN and more, the chocolate tour is an attraction that San Francisco residents and visitors passing through are not to miss.
The company’s tour guides have worked with culinary giants like the Food Network, Haagen-Dazs and several popular blogs about food and travel, and each one aims to give each visitor a unique taste of the sweetness of San Francisco.
