I took this tour early in my first trip to San Fran. As a foodie & a food tour freak I have some feedback:
PROs: VERY informative guide who is an expert in chocolate. She knows it's history inside & out and shares this in a digestible way. She was kind & courteous.
The stops were plentiful--I couldn't eat all the samples given bc it was so much so I had a goodie bag to take home. They also provide a discount card so as you tour you can buy additional yummy chocolate w a discount for future gifts.
There were good bits of city history here & there, although I think a little more wouldn't have hurt.
CON: my only beef with the tour was the ending when the guide said she would appreciate tips. I gave her one & was planning on doing so prior to her comment but I felt she made this VERY awkward for myself & the other guests & put us in an uncomfortable situation.
The classy way around this would have been to mention at the beginning of the tour that tips aren't included in the ticket price, but are greatly appreciated.
Other than that rough ending I thought the experience was lovely.
