Long story sweet: we are no longer offering tours at this time.

Instead, I am focusing on speaking engagements which include seated chocolate tastings, and on consulting projects which include working with bean-to-bar chocolate makers, small-batch chocolatiers, and cacao-growing nations.

Remember: we are not on Groupon or any other daily deal sites. We are the award-winning and true "Valerie's Original" Chicago Chocolate Tours. #notongroupon 

Thank you, and "keep eating chocolate!"

Sweet regards,

**PLEASE NOTE THAT SUBMITTING YOUR CREDIT CARD FORM DOES NOT AUTOMATICALLY CONFIRM YOUR SPOTS. Dates are going fast, so our Fabulous Booking Team will check to see whether your chosen date is available, and will get back to you as quickly as possible with confirmation if your date is available, or with suggested alternate dates if your chosen date has sold out. Thank you!**


"Fine print:" Tours run rain, snow, or shine (chocolate tastes great in all weather!) and if you find you cannot attend on your chosen date, you may choose another date, based on availability, with no penalty. Tours generally end at a different location from the starting point. Stores are subject to change, and tickets are non-refundable. We have an expansive, inclusive view of chocolate, which means your tour may feature not only chocolate bars or truffles, but also other forms of chocolate which may include ice cream, cupcakes, croissants, other baked goods, hot chocolate, or chocolate tea. We believe in sharing artisan quality chocolate items, and in exploring the wide world of chocolate!

A wonderful chocolate adventure awaits!
