Chocolate Tour of San Francisco

(a Yelp Member) on 4 Mar 2014 My boyfriend found this chocolate tour of SF on Groupon. We had been to Ghirardelli Square before, but getting to visit a part of the city that we'd never been to before and eat tons of chocolate along the way sounded promising. It was even better than we imagined. All of the stops were unique and delicious. Derek was our tour guide - he definitely made the tour exceptional.

I would highly recommend this tour to anyone and would definitely go on another tour with this company in the future. Hiking in Marin - Best Hikes, Guides, and Trail Maps.
