We really enjoyed this tour. The owner did a great job of explaining the ingredients and process of chocolate making. My husband peppered him with questions concerning the business end of things, which Derrick kindly answered. I enjoyed his clear and informative presentation; subtle, dry humor...and of course, the chocolate.

If you love chocolate this is the place to go! A really informative tour and Derrik has a very dry sense of humour which was really entertaining. You leave knowing at least 2 facts, how chocolate gets it's flavor and how it is so smooth! Great to buy products which were discounted and so everyone on our tour took advantage!... More

Really informative, got to see how to make chocolate try different beans, and also sample the end product. Well worth it

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

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
