      we had a wonderful day on our trip to Brooklyn for the Chocolate trip. The pizza, ice cream and all the chocolate samples were great and the tour guide was very good. It was a very enjoyable day.

      Touring with a local guide is teh way to explore more! It turns brick-and-mortar into brilliant stories. Lunch into a history lesson. Chocolate becomes a story of cacao to craft. LOVED this experience, who knew I'd love Brooklyn and I saw a BROWNSTONE for the first time in person
