This is a fantastic day out.You see the whole process from 'bean to bar'. Derrick really knows his stuff and makes the tour very interesting. You get to taste all the different types of chocolate and get to try the raw ingredients. Great visit.

It was a small intimate group setting.The tasting of the ingredients and chocolate was awesome. The whole chocolate making process was facinating. Well worth the money. The tour lasted about 1 hour and 45 minutes. A must see when in Barbados

I must start by saying that I went to the factory without taking the tour, just for shopping. Just go to this place and buy some variety of their wonderful bars! Between all kinds the Rum Cream Filled Bar is probably my favorite. The mixed bar pack makes a great gift. Enjoy!

Derrick loves chocolate and loves what he does, very informative tour of a boutique chocolate manufacturer and the chocolate is to die for. You get to see how chocolate is made from growing the beans to wrapping the final bar. Make sure you buy some chocolate to take home as it's excellent.

We toured the Agape Chocolate Factory on a recent cruise stop. It was an excellent tour and well worth the price of the tour. The owner went through the entire process from bean to completed product. It was great that it was a small group. I would not recommend this tour for children because I don't think it would keep... More

Derrick was a knowledgeable guide who is passionate about his business and quality chocolate. We got to taste many types of dark chocolate, beans and sugars. Very interesting tour and would recommend as a must see whilst in Barbados. Buy some chocolate too. Very reasonable price and up there with the best dark chocolate I have tasted!

Booked online prior to arriving to Barbados. Derrick was informative with the chocolate making process. Derrick's presentation was good and so were the samples. Exactly as stated online. Have a new found appreciation for pure chocolate. Would recommend the tour and purchasing all varieties, great gift ideas.

We recently took a cruise and signed up for a tour of the factory with our group of 8. Our ship was late in arriving and the factory accommodated our late arrival. It was a short walk from the cruise port. The tour was very informative on how they make their chocolate bars. Recommend anyone visiting Barbados go on-line prior... More

We got to the factory a little early and had to wait for the previous tour to finish. Once it was our turn we were waiting for another group who were running late. After realizing they wouldn't be there for another hour or so we started our tour just my husband and myself. It was nice it was just the... More

We finally were in this cruise port on a day when we could visit this small chocolate factory, which we had seen featured on TripAdvisor. Spaces are limited, so it is essential to make a reservation online in advance. Apparently, if you are staying on the island for a more extended time, you can arrange a non-scheduled time to take...
