No worries, this three-hour tour is nothing like the one that left Gilligan and his gang stranded on a tropical island. It is, by far, one of the most indulgent days you'll ever have.
Tour Conductors and Character Chefs will provide trolley travelers with tantalizing treats from local chocolate legends like NECCO and Beacon Hill Chocolates, as well as exercise the mind with chocolate trivia.
Stopping first at Top of the Hub, 52 floors above Boston in the Prudential Center, you'll be treated to tastes of chocolate that are sure to surprise. Enjoy every bite, as well as the view that surrounds you, because the 360-degree panorama is simply spectacular. Hop back onto the trolley and head to The Omni Parker House, the home of Boston's namesake dessert: the Boston Cream Pie.
One last stop completes this chocolate adventure, and there is no better place for this tour to end than the Langham Hotel. Famous for their Chocolate Bar, the desserts they serve to the chocolate tour go beyond expectations. This year, the Langham is serving delights like Bittersweet Chocolate Mousse, Italian cookies, and Five Spice Chocolate Soup in their "Boston's Famous Neighborhood" themed event.
Running on Saturdays (twice a day) through April 28, the chocolate tour is not cheap at $80 per person. But, it's more than worth it for the food you'll eat, the sights you'll see and the company you'll keep.
