For your Chocolate Heaven Christchurch Tour you will be picked up from your hotel at around 0900h (09:00am) and taken to meet one of New Zealand’s greatest chocolate experts.
After being greeted with a delicious real hot chocolate drink, you spend 2 hours learning about the history of high quality chocolate and how to taste and judge it. You will also taste the most pure and expensive chocolate on the planet!
You then enjoy a master class in how to work with chocolate and make your own chocolate treats to take away. Once everyone is cleaned up, you finish with a pure chocolate fondue which introduces a whole lot of new chocolate taste experiences.
You will have the opportunity to purchase the tools and chocolate used on your tour as your chocolatier has put together an attractive take-away kit which includes fine chocolate, tools, moulds and small recipe and tips booklet – a great souvenir or a gift for friends.
After the full-on chocolate experience, you will drive to Hagley Park, one of New Zealand’s most beautiful urban spaces, for a refreshing walk before sitting down to coffee and a light lunch. After lunch you will be taken to a fudge factory. Here you watch the creation of one of world’s favourite confections, made the traditional way with condensed milk and real flavours. You get to taste the fudge hot and ask plenty of questions about the process. A visit to their world-famous shop is also on offer.
At the end of the tour, you will be dropped back either at your accommodation or in town (your preference) at about 1330h (1:30pm).
