Full description
Enjoy a stroll around some of the New York's most decadent dessert stores, and discover some of the finest chocolatiers in Manhattan. Stop for 8 tastings on-the-go, walking in small groups of no more than 20 people. Meet your guide at Washington Square Arch and head off to sample tasty truffles and salty caramels, including dark chocolate almond bark and the most exquisite chocolate mousse you’ve ever tasted. Discover one of New York’s best kept foodie secrets at Chelsea Market, and sample the amazing chocolate creations of Jacques Torres (“Mr Chocolate”). Go to Manhattan’s cult candy store at Lilac Chocolates, where the homemade mocha truffles, maple walnut fudge, chocolate cream rolls, and almond bark are to die for! Have a “chocogasm” at the Chocolate Bar, Alison Nelson’s pioneering shop in the West Village, and try the legendary cupcakes at Magnolia Bakery. No chocolate experience would be complete without a warm baked chocolate chip cookie at Milk and Cookies, while the mango paprika slate at Xocolatti provides the perfect introduction to Soho's most innovative chocolatier. Savor the best chocolate canoli at Pasticceria Bruno, and discover chocolates spiced with an array of exotic flavors, including allspice, ginger, hemp seed, and wasabi at Vosges.

Lee was a wonderful source of knowledge about New York, while walking between chocolate stores he told great stories. He obviously enjoys living in New York and wants to pass his enjoyment on to his clients.

I got to the meeting place early. No one showed up for the tour. We waited until 12:15 when we realized no one was coming. There was no schedule so we didn’t know where the tour was headed. No # to call. Waiting for a refund.
