I'm Valerie Beck, the original chocolate tours creator, and a lifelong chocolate aficionado. 

My team and I provide guided walking and tasting tours to select Chicago chocolate shops and cafes. We also operate a luxury Chocolate Travel Club, and offer gift certificates, custom nail colors, and other gifts. And, we're also in the nearby town of Geneva, IL, as well as in Boston and Philadelphia.

I founded the tours in Chicago in 2005, after first conceiving of the idea years before while on a college study-abroad trip to Paris and leading the very first chocolate tours there and in Belgium at that time. I am proud of my team and grateful to our beloved tour customers and store partners!

Feel free to see our schedule of tours, and to watch our video clips.

Chicago Chocolate Tours are fun, educational, and of course delicious! Thanks for visiting - and please like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter and Instagram - and I'll see you on a tour!
