Free Chocolate Factory Tours
Ghirardelli may get all the hype from tourists, but there’s some awfully tasty chocolate being crafted a little further down the Embarcadero.
TCHO invites you for daily one-hour tours of their factory for free followed by a guided tasting.
Learn how their chocolate is made, why you should suck (and not chew) on their tasty nibblits, and learn how to wear a beard net… very very important.

This TCHO Factory experience includes a presentation and factory tour with a knowledgeable (and hopefully entertaining) tour guides, as well as an in-depth guided tasting of this flavor-driven, artisan chocolate. The tour lasts about an hour long.
Some rules: This is a food production facility so there are some rules. Do not wear open-toed shoes (incl: sandals & flip-flops). Kids under the age of 8 are not allowed (this is not Willy Wonka’s factory). You must put away jewelry, watches, loose objects, cameras and cellphones. You do have to wear the provided hair net, beard guard (that goes for you too, Brian Wilson) and earplugs.
