Fun tour

It is an interesting tour, but unless you are very interested, it is probably better to tour some of the old cities and churches in the area.

There is a small museum and shop in the factory. For a tour it is much better to book as I have found myself tagged on to a school group which is not the best. It depends on the time of year just what is being produced at the factory. On my last visit they were only producing cocoa, previously... More

This is a perfect way to spend the afternoon making chocolate and the best part bringing it home! The instructor was very informative and funny making the class very interesting. I highly suggest you take the tour and/or the chocolate making class.

The poster ad for this place shows a chef making chocolate by hand with traditional equipment. It is in fact the Nestlé factory situated on an industrial estate. The tour takes you through the factory where you watch the chocolate bars being packed. The 'chocolate buffet' that is included in the ticket price is in fact a few broken bars... More

A fun tour. The sampling was wonderful. We didn't book - I advise to book so you can get a tour with an English speaking guide.

All that we saw during the tour was packaging, no candy making, no molds, no chocolate coating of candies. We saw candies being wrapped and candies being boxed; the same thing we could see in any factory with any small product. The tour had a lot of steps so it is unfriendly to baby carriages/strollers, though a couple struggled through... More

It was an interesting experience. However, make sure to go online and reserve your place since we wasted a lot of time there because the next available tour was in three hours. Do not bother to send emails, because they do not reply - just book a place. The tour consisted of an introductory video about chocolate, a tour in... More
