We booked in advance through their website, and we actually got a tour on a Saturday, which is arranged by e-mail to the factory. There were a group of 11 of us on the morning of our tour. It was a very in depth learning experience-we learned where the beans & sugar come from and the owner showed us the... More

We booked this tour in advance for what turned out to be an incredibly rainy day in Barbados whilst we were on the P & O ship Ventura. As mentioned, it's a fairly short walk (about 10 minutes) from the cruise terminal. It's certainly worth paying careful attention to the very clear directions given on the web-site as the factory...

I chose this tour because of all the great reviews. As everyone has mentioned, it is a little confusing to find, but we did eventually find it. I've done many tastings-- wine, champagne, and rum. But never have I done a chocolate tasting. Hands down one of the most informative tastings I've ever done. Everything is explained in one room.... More

It's was a highlight of our day in Barbados. It was a very educational and interesting tour with a wonderful host. We tried a lot of good chocolate and bought some as well. I highly recommend this experience and would love to come back.

My group took a tour of the Agapey Chocolate Factory. While the "factory tour" itself was not a big one, our host, Alex was so incredibly good at explaining everything and answering all our questions, it made this the highlight of our visit to Barbados. While explaining the whole process, he gave us samples to try along the way. We... More

First of all, we had no trouble finding the factory off our cruise ship and found the walk about 8-10 minutes, in line with owner Derrick's emailed directions. We printed out the entire email which included photos and followed them explicitly. It is closer than you think; we could see the ship from the factory door and it seems like... More

This visit was well worth the money. The tour was hosted by the owner of the Agapey Chocolate Factory who is super cool and knowledgeable about the art of chocolate making. The samples were ridiculously good. You'll get to try sugars and cocoa beans from different regions and, of course, the delicious finished product. You'll also get a chance to... More

This was a great way to spend 2 hours of our day; I am not a big fan of dark chocolate but my DH is, so I booked the tour thinking it would be a treat for him. Well, this chocolate proved to be the exception to the rule, very smooth and tasty....especially the one with ooey gooey rum and... More

We booked the 9:30am tour. Excellent directions were provided to get to the factory from the cruise ship port. If you elect to walk allow about 15-20 minutes, depending on the temperature and your pace. As you walk through the port, and exit the security gates you will be overwhelmed with taxi drivers wanting to take you everywhere on the... More

We booked online for a 9:30 tour. Leave plenty of time to get there as its not easy to locate. Even the taxi driver had a difficult time. It's located in an industrial area and you will definitely think you are in the wrong location. This tour is all done in one room, which is spotless. You are required to... More
