My wife and I did the chocolate tour with some friends with Noa. Her energy and pride as a Geneva resident shines through and made the tour enjoyable. She delivered the history in a fun and engaging manner. The 3 hours flew! Noa was very knowledgeable and helpful not only on the chocolate spots, but also Geneva as a whole! She recommended some great fondue - banis des paquis!! I’ve done tours and other countries (chocolate included) and none have matched Noa’s excellence! I highly recommend booking a tour and it’s family friendly too!

This tour was beautiful be sure not to miss it. Cheese and chocolate factories a bit boring but both stores were fun and tastings were delicious! Taste the fondue with the potatoes yummm! And the chocolates we’ll double yum, white chocolate and milk chocolate with hazelnuts just perfect. Trip up the mountain was breathtaking for the view and the small town was picturesque. Train ride was just ok but views were spectacular!

Our guide, Noa, was excellent. She was so friendly, lively and full of energy! She made sure to speak to everyone on the tour and helped them feel included. As for the tour, it was nicely paced and well conducted. I particularly liked the history part of it. If you want to do some walking in Geneva, and love chocolates and cakes, this tour is a good choice.

Wonderful experience. Beautiful town, great activities topped off with a beautiful train ride. Maggie, our guide, was very knowledgeable and fun.

Fantastic experience. Our tour guide Chris was great and there was never a dull moment.
