For women, the final days of being single go beyond a night of rowdy dancing.
If you have a sweet tooth, the Chicago Chocolate tours is a must.
Valerie Beck created the guided chocolate tour company and says many bachelorettes opt for the sweet tour before a fancy dinner.
"We help them choose the best restaurant afterward. We help them put together the perfect day, with the tour as a centerpiece," Beck said.
Chocolate acts as an appetite suppressant, but Beck says women are walking for the tours, so calories are burned. "Women may not order seconds at dinner," she said with a laugh.
"This is a chocolate city," Beck said. "We go behind the scenes and meet the owners, and learn what makes each type of chocolate so special."
Here's what customers are saying about our bridal tours:
I just wanted to say thank you again. We had an absolute blast on the tour Saturday. The Bride LOVED it!!! Heidi is such a doll, she made the perfect tour guide. (And, since the bride is a teacher she felt an automatic kinship to Heidi!) I've visited several Chocolatiers which have provided a quick overview on the history of chocolate and I still learned a TON from your tour.
Looking forward to my next tour.
Thank you for a fun-filled day in Chicago.
You and Heidi did a wonderful job yesterday.
Thank you so much for making a perfect day even more special.
The bride and everyone keep singing your praises.
Thanks for creating great memories,
Let us know what we can do for you - here's to a delicious day of chocolate to help celebrate your marvelous day of marriage and beautiful days ever after!
