We took time to visit the Agapey Chocolate Factory while on a cruise stop in Barbados in July 2015. We walked from the boat and past the friendly, but persistent, cab drivers who were not pleased we would walk instead of hop in their cabs. Nonetheless, we traversed the distance in about 20-25 minutes. The "factory" is a small cinderblock... More

We were on a cruise ship stop and came here after stumbling upon it in someone's blog and then confirming it on TripAdvisor. We walked here from the cruise ship. (If you walk, know that you are walking in an industrial area, when we went we were the only people we saw walking in that direction. It was fine, but... More

I had read about this factory on trip advisor and decided to book. It was about $18 U.S. a person. It was very informative. Derrick told us all about chocolate making and about this back group. And of course we got to taste a lot of chocolate. It lasted about an hour and half so not to long. We are... More

We did not do the tour - just stopped to buy chocolate. We were just passing buy and wanted to do tour, but we were with kids and kids are not allowed in the tour. Still the chocolate is amazing!

We walked to this tour from the cruise port. Derrick showed us his two room factory and all the equpment he uses to roast, shell, press and extract chocolate. We watched a girl pour bars into a mold and got to taste different types of chocolate beans, sugars and finished product. Chocolate bars are discounted to $5 each if you... More

I recently took my 15 year old son on a Southern Caribbean cruise vacation and Barbados was one of our stops. When doing my research beforehand I stumbled upon Agapey Chocolate Factory and decided to book it for us. I just though it sounded unique and it was reasonably priced at $18. Additionally, it left us with plenty of time... More

That man is Derrick who owns, runs and does tours of his dark chocolate making kingdom. Definitely worth an hour and a half if your time to show you all about the makings of dark chocolate. Plenty sampling and a chance to buy discounted product at the end. Found Derrick an intresting guide and wish him all the best for... More

The tour leader (I don't remember him even telling us his name!) was a real JERK, had an attitude and was very sarcastic. Any question I asked had a smart-mouthed answer. He totally ignored a suggestion that I made in the group setting. And we paid money for this tour! The chocolate was OK. I told various other people where... More
