Testimonials from past Chocolate Tour Lovers:
This tour is great. I took my Fiance for her Birthday and she loved it! The places that we went to were very interesting to listen to their stories, and that all had delicious chocolate. I was never a fan of Dark chocolate, but now I realize that I have been getting it from all the wrong places. This is a must-see tour. -- T. Davis
I had a lot of fun going to different chocolatiers, bakeries and pizza places and tasting their creations. All the shopkeepers are very cordial and accommodating. There were chocolate stores and eateries in Dallas I never realized were here, if not for Dallas by Chocolate and Dallas Bites! Food Tours. I met many interesting people and ate some wonderful chocolate and other wonderful foods at the same time.
-- L. Lanier
I have been on 7 food tours so far, and already signed up for another! Best value going in Dallas! So much fun and so delicious..... I also get great tips on my next restaurant trip!
-- K. McElroy
We had the BEST time celebrating my birthday on the Taste of the Bishop Arts tour. The food was great, the price was good and Jeanine knew a lot about the history of the area. I recommend this tour 100%.
-- L. Fellhauer
This is one of the coolest things to do in Dallas and I'm THRILLED that it's taken off the way it has! I've been on 5 tours (sweet and savory), recommended it to people, bought a gift certificate for a friend - I love this! It's not a slick, professional, hurry-in-hurry-out kind of tour like you get in other cities and I prefer that. I like that we get time to interact with the vendors. Congrats on your success!! -- K. Grimm
