What To Expect

This 4 hour chocolate tour begins at chocolate factory- a bean-to-bar chocolate maker's production site. Learn about the process of making chocolate and listen to the owner's personal story. See the beans and other parts of the process that take place, all while tasting three chocolates, made mostly with single-origin beans.

Afterwards, walk to a small Mexican restaurant through the Mile End neighborhood. Enjoy a light meal with mole tamales, agues frescas and traditional Mexican chocolate as well as an explication of chocolate in Mesoamerica during the Colonial period. Take the opportunity to hear about the owner and chef of the restaurant and peruse her privately imported Mexican products.

Then walk through the Mile End with quick stops at a historic site to learn about the origins of the neighborhood. Leave the Mile-End for the Mile-Ex. Arrive at a cocktail and high high end knife shop for a tasting of two cocktails or virgin cocktails. Finish at a bean-to-bar boutique for a chocolate tasting, a cacao drink and a tasting of confections made with single origin chocolate. Taste three very different chocolates with an explanation of how to sample them and a tasting wheel to help with the vocabulary for chocolate tasting. Then contrast with the confections. There will then be time to shop and ask questions.

I live in Montreal, but Melissa gave us more than a chocolate tour, which was awesome. She gave us history of Montreal that I didn't know about!
Learned so much

Learned to savor and properly appreciate fine chocolate as one would a glass of fine wine. Really enjoyed the tastings as well as all the background information. Each of the stops was equally fascinating and informative. I had no idea Montreal was such a mecca for bean to bar chocolate production.

Melissa is an amazing tour guide. Very accommodating and organized. We had two children with us (energetic boys: 10 and 12 years old) and she was able to engage them and was very patient with their constant questions. Our family of four had a great time. Even my husband (more of a sports fan) found this tour interesting. We also learned about the history of the neighborhood. We felt we were with a friend who was having us visit her friends who happened to be chocolate connoisseurs and producers. Best tour guide ever!
We loved the Ultimate Chocolate Tour!

My son and I did the Ultimate Chocolate Tour. It was absolutely wonderful! Our guide Melissa was so friendly and knowledgeable! We learned a lot about chocolate and also a lot about the history of Montreal. It was fun, interesting and delicious! We loved it!!
Instructive and fabulously delicious

This summer, I decided to (re)discover my own city as a way to make the best out of the COVID-19. This chocolate tour made me travel to Perou with a few stops in Mexico, Dominican Republic, Guatemala learning about the art and the reality behind cocoa production and small scale bean to bar chocolate production! A wonder for the senses and very instructive. Daniel from Chocolat Monarque and our guide Melissa were amazing!
