DC Metro Chocolate Tours began in 2010 when Boston Chocolate Tours & TeamBonding Founder David Goldstein created a way to be closer to his daughter who was going to college here, as well as feed his cocoa passion and share what he discovered with others. Needless to say, his daughter graduated and he has passed on the running of the company to an expert team of Washingtonians who may love chocolate even more than he does…
