Chocolate Ecstasy Tours
Chocolate Ecstasy Tours – the name alone is enough to make your mouth water. Fancy something a little more special than buy-off-the-shelf chocolates in supermarkets? These chocolate tours offer unique chocolatey experiences in the Mayfair and Chelsea. Sample unusual flavours like rosemary and olive oil ganache and corn kernel praline. This is the tour, as the organizers say, ‘to expand your chocolate horizons.’ The Chelsea Tour is superb for lovers of dark chocolate, and the Mayfair Tour is great for lovers of milk chocolate (though both tours include a good portion of both).
