Whether you're a chocolate aficionado or just enjoy a little of the sweet stuff now and then, you'll definitely want to include the TCHO Chocolate Factory on your list of important sightseeing destinations in San Francisco. This unique artisan chocolatier works hard to create their signature "New American Chocolate" with delicious offerings like Gianduja chocolate and hazelnut butter, chocolate covered mango, roasted organic cocoa nibs, drinking chocolate nibbles, and gold leaf salted nib caramel. The company offers daily guided tasting tours of its factory on Pier 17 at the Embarcadero, where you can learn all about the history of chocolate, the company's sustainable farm sourcing, and the flavor driven artisan chocolates. The factory's expert chocolate making staff will guide you through the factory, where you'll be immersed in the sights and smells of luscious, tempting light and dark chocolates and enjoy the rich rewards of samples all along the way. Free tours of the TCHO Chocolate Factory are offered daily at 10:30am and 2pm. Reservations are required, and be sure to arrive at least 5 minutes early to confirm your space on the tour. Why not make a weekend of it, and stay at the Hotel Griffon? Our European-inspired waterfront hotel on the Embarcadero is located just a 15 minute scenic walk from the TCHO Chocolate Factory and other popular attractions in vibrant San Francisco.
