"I truly enjoyed this chocolate tour. The guide, Ahmed, was fantastic and very knowledgeable. He kept everyone's interest, he was informative but not boring, and gave some good tips about the city itself as well. I highly recommend this tour and would do it again at a later date."
"I learned amazing facts about chocolate and more importantly, San Francisco. We're new to the area so I was hoping to learn about SF and we did! He showed us amazing little rooftop gardens open to the public that are perfect for urban picnics. Very positive experience overall!"
"My wife and I have taken many tours in many places, but this was without a doubt the best tour we've ever taken. Our tour guide, Ahmet, of Gourmet Walks, was outstanding. He took three couples that were total strangers and before long we felt like old friends. Ahmet has a vast knowledge of chocolate, wine and the city of San Francisco, that he conveys in a casual and fun manner, with a great sense of humor. Best of all, this tour was a tremendous value. I believe that we must have come close to recouping our investment with the fine chocolates, wines and other beverages that we consumed. This tour was just a blast. We'll absolutely recommend it to friends and family. Like our other experience with Cloud 9, the whole process was seamless and well organized. The customer service from Cloud 9 is superb. -Steve L"
