If you are a sweets lover like I am, you don’t want to miss this tour! A Slice of Brooklyn Bus Tours offers a tour called “A Slice of Brooklyn Chocolate” tour. Definitely the tour for this sweet tooth over here!
The Slice of Brooklyn Chocolate Tour departs Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from the Union Square area of Manhattan at 11:00 AM daily. Guests are encouraged to arrive by 10:45 to board the bus and settle in. The four hour tour is going to take you to some of the most amazing chocolate shops in New York.
While you’ll really learn about chocolate on this tour, it’s also great to learn about some of Brooklyn’s most famous neighborhoods. You’ll be able to learn about Valentino Pier, Cobble Hill, Red Hook, Industry City, Carroll Gardens, and Gowanus. During your visit to Valentino Pier, make sure you look for the Statue of Liberty, it’s the best view you’ll get without directly going to her!
During your four hour chocolate filled tour, you’ll visit four (yes, four!!) of the finest chocolatiers in Brooklyn. The ticket for the tour also includes samples. Tour tickets start at $58 for adults and $48 for children. $58 for chocolate samples and history together? Yes, please.
The four shops that you will visit are Jacques Torres Chocolates, The Chocolate Room, Raaka Chocolate, Li-Lac Chocolates. During your visits to each of these shops, you’ll have the opportunity to taste test, watch demonstrations, and the chance to buy some of your favorites.
The tour also ties in pop culture along the way. As you travel to different stops, the big video screens on the bus will show you some of the most famous chocolate scenes from television and movies.
As if that’s not enough, the shops you are visiting have been featured on the Travel Channel, the Food Network, and the Cooking Channel.
The tour is educational as well. During the four hours, guests will learn the history of the (in my opinion) best tasting sweet there is. You’ll see video footage on what the process to making chocolate is, from bean to bar, as they say.
What sets this tour apart is your guide. Each guide that is hired by A Slice of Brooklyn is born and raised in the borough of Brooklyn. These guides have walked the streets, eaten at the best places in Brooklyn and can give you insider info like nobody else can. Ask for the best pizza shop in town and you’ll get the answer because these guys and girls know first hand!
