We tried to think what our perfect afternoon would comprise of and our Sweet Treats - Tea, Chocolate, Cake Tour was born! This tour is for anyone wanting to treat themselves or their loved ones to a relaxing and fun afternoon of indulgence and who loves tea, cakes, ice cream and chocolate. It takes place in one of Edinburgh's loveliest local neighbourhoods. Our guide will give Edinburgh tips for any visitors to the city as well as leading you on a delicious journey. All the businesses we'll visit are skillful family businesses with interesting stories.

On this tour you'll meet French pastry experts and see them at work as well as tasting their creations. You'll enter the fascinating world of tea, hear how to make the perfect cuppa and all about the health benefits as well as doing a sensory tasting. We'll try some chocolate in one of Scotland's leading chocolatiers and then eat cake in a beautiful café with a mouth-watering selection of cakes and scones.  Next we'll sample ice cream from a much-loved family business which was started in 1908 and has some uniquely Scottish flavours – Irn Bru sorbet anyone! Finally, just when you thought you couldn't fit in anymore, we'll end our tour in one of Edinburgh's most charming shops which specialises in sweets and chocolate and we'll be trying some of their delicious produce.  You'll probably only need a light supper after taking this tour!
