Private Tours & Tastings

Why not celebrate your next special event with a San Francisco Gourmet Chocolate Tour? We have planned memorable team-building events for many Bay Area companies, including Google, Genentech, Simpson Thacher, Fosters Wine, W Hotels AT&T, YouTube and Scharffen Berger. A Gourmet Walks Chocolate Tour or Tasting Party is a perfect way to entertain clients, spice up a spousal program or reward hard-working employees.

All private events include a Chocolate Lover Card for all guests, entitling them to discounts and VIP treatment at 8 different chocolate boutiques.

Please call 415.312.1119 or email [email protected] and tell us what you’d like to do. We’ll take care of the rest.

Gourmet Chocolate Tour

Tamar arranged a private tour for her colleagues at Alameda Family Services: “The Chocolate Tour was the perfect antidote to job burnout for my overworked social service staff. We loved learning about chocolate from its history to its many current delicious forms. It was a great opportunity to explore San Francisco and indulge our senses.”

Naomi organized a private tour for the “Cuisine Society” she runs at a southern California high school: “It was the idea of our president, a senior, to take time to do a gourmet chocolate tour, which everyone was quite excited about. We arrived on the tour and learned lots of interesting facts as well as tasted chocolate in all different states (which was fun). It was a nice activity to do as a group since we could share chocolates and strategize our choices to cover a wider range of chocolates in the shops where we had a choice. As a group of foodies, this was just the kind of activity for us. All in all, it was a good time.”

Gourmet Chocolate Tour and Beauty Treatment

Your group will first enjoy a private Gourmet Chocolate Tour, visiting and sampling from 7 different chocolate boutiques in San Francisco. After all that walking, you will then sit back and relax as your feet luxuriate in a Chocolate Pedicure from our favorite downtown spa. What a day of indulgence! $130/pp.

Gourmet Chocolate Tasting Party

You’ve heard of wine tasting parties, why not a chocolate tasting one? We’ll come to your home with a wealth of knowledge to share and high quality chocolate bars to taste. We can even design games that reward your guests for guessing correctly. Your friends will have fun, but also leave with a better understanding of what goes into a gourmet chocolate bar. This also makes a perfect corporate event. From $30-50/pp chocolate only. $70 with wine pairings.

Sandrine planned a bridal event with Gourmet Walks in her Bernal Heights home: "We really enjoyed Andrea's gourmet chocolate and wine testing. We discovered an interesting variety of chocolate... a real pleasure to the palate."

You’ll visit 8 and enjoy samples all the way, while sipping on sparkling wine or port in the comfort of your limo. $65/pp plus limo cost of $300 and 15% tour guide gratuity.

Inga planned a Chocolate Limo Tour for her husband’s birthday: “Thank you for organizing a wonderful tour – we were able to pull off the surprise, and it was a very memorable birthday and an exciting way to see San Francisco in all of its chocolate glory.”
