This is a must tour for those who want to understand chocolate making and those who like chocolates. Unlike other chocolate factory tours we attended, this one is given by the owner and takes place where he and his one employee actually make chocolates. The presentation starts by discussing and tasting the various kinds of chocolate beans, where they are... More

A tour of the Agapey chocolate factory is a must. The owner and founder of the factory conducts the tour and he is very personable and gives a very informative tour of his small factory. Your are able to buy his dark chocolate bars for a reasonable price at the end of the hour-long tour. Book in advance as the... More

I adore dark chocolate and my boyfriend had brought me some from Agapey when he had been here before. (He had taken the tour solo.) I loved it! When we had an opportunity to travel to Barbados together, he booked us a tour. What a great experience! The owner, Derrick, is passionate about chocolate making and it shows during his... More

I took my Girlfriend on this Informative Chocolate tour. We both enjoy good quality chocolate and this is some of the best we have experienced. This factory is equipped with quality equipment which the owner demonstrates to you, as you progress through the chocolate making process. It is a Boutique Chocolate Factory so don't go on this tour with expectations... More

Entire tour took place in a 20x20 cement floor space.Hot,uncomfortable and boring. Had to stand for over an hour. No redeeming value whatsoever.

This factory of gourmet chocolate bars is tucked away in a port warehouse, easily accessible to cruise visitors. The manager, Derrick, imports the finest flavor cocoa from Grenada, Dominican Republic and Venezuela to make rich dark chocolate bars which are sold at a good discount under supermarket prices. Reservations are needed for a rout limited to 15 who a given... More

Went to tour this small chocolate factory and was very pleasantly surprise. The owner provided great insight and knowledge in regards to the ingredients and making high quality chocolate. The chocolate available for purchase is a must as its quality and taste is wonderful. I highly recommend this tour but it must be scheduled in advance since it is given... More

If you are a lover of dark chocolate, this is not to be missed. You are in a very small group and he walks you though the process from bean to final product, while tasting and learning throughout the process. He only produces dark chocolate and the rum and coconut rum filled chocolates are just heavenly. Tip--this is just a... More

Our tour with owner, Derrick, was delivered with technical clarity and a genuine passion for his wonderfully tasteful, hand-crafted bars of love. This is a family business which deserves its international following of true chocolate lovers. Derrick's engineering background adds a very unique expertise to the experience. A visit to the bespoke Agapey Chocolate Factory is not to be missed... More
