What you'll do

Taste. Indulge. Explore- Experience Geneva’s award winning chocolate creations and culture in a delightful 3 h walking tour. We will show you 5 of the city’s best artisan chocolateries from traditional to modern, and you’ll experience 11 chocolate creations in all shapes and forms: from chocolate pralines, to truffles, ganaches, chocolate pearls, cakes and drinking chocolate. The unique Geneva chocolate marmite breaking tradition… is also part of the tour.

During the tour you will learn the secrets around more than 2000 years of “food of the Gods” history, including Geneva and Swiss chocolate history as well as participate in a short workshop on chocolate tasting. We will also visit the charming Old town with its cobbled stone streets, old churches, beautiful squares, stroll around the shores of the Geneva lake and river Rhone, take a boat ride from left bank to the right bank. All this while sharing with you anecdotes and less known stories and sights of our beloved city that not even the locals know about.

Hello,

My name is Antonia and I am passionate about chocolate and my city Geneva. I love to travel and believe food is the best way to explore a destination. And there is no food that represents better Geneva then.. of course its delicious chocolate :)
I have been organising this tour for more than 2 years. The people in the Tourism Office of Geneva tell me "you are a great representative of our city". The chocolatiers and patissiers we will explore together are selected not just for the amazing quality of their products-many of them awarded at international level- but also for their owners passion for what they are doing.

I love history, art, culture, but most of all I love to tell stories and anecdotes. So you will learn about Geneva in an fun and entertaining way while of course you will be tasting the most delicious chocolate

A mix between history and chocolate, what’s better you can ask for in Genève? Noa (one of the Local Flavors Tours guides) took us in an amazing tour around the city. We visited top notch chocolate shops starting from old to new shops (1875 till 2013). Noa is an amazing storyteller and passionate young lady about chocolate, and the cit of Geneva. Highly recommended tour to get to know the history of the city in a taste of chocolate!

Absolutely loved the tour with Dan! He was very friendly and a great storyteller. He helped advise us on our chocolate selections and shared the history of the city and Swiss chocolate. Highly recommend as a relaxing, fun and delicious way to get to know the city!

Hello! I went with my mother Paula and we really loved it! All the chocolates and cake were amazing!! Noa was really great in the visit, always with an amazing vibe and an incredible capacity to make everyone in the group visit to feel welcome and blended in. She always tells the stories and history with enthusiasm and also makes lots of great interaction with us.

Une expérience inoubliable. Un grand merci à Noah pour son professionnalisme et sa gentillesse. En effet, Noah est très passionnée par ce qu'elle fait et a su animer parfaitement la visite. J'ai découvert des chocolats d'exceptions dans l'une des plus belles villes du monde. Merci encore 🙏

Great tour, with a great balance of tasting chocolates (with a special award to the Pierre et Jean’s cake), and learning about this history of Geneva. Our guide was super knowledgeable, and I ended up having a great time, despite the terrible weather that day. It’s really a great way to discover Geneva in a unique experience.

Things to know

Cancellation policy

Any experience can be cancelled and fully refunded within 24 hours of purchase, or at least 7 days before the experience starts.

Guest requirements

Up to 10 guests of all ages can attend.

What to bring

Wear flat shoes – it is, after all, a walking tour and we will be walking on the cobble stone streets of the Old Town, so be comfortable

I suggest a light savoury meal (breakfast/lunch) before your tour
