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

I was very impressed with this chocolate tour. The owner, Derrick, did an excellent job explaining the chocolate process from bean to bar. We tasted different sugars, beans and chocolate. Only children over 8 years old are allowed. Mine, 10 and 12 were interested and engaged throughout the tour. They both had their personal favourites and chose to use their... More

I'd give it an excellent rating if they didn't run out of the chocolate I wanted to buy so be the first to buy after the tour is over. Very informative about chocolate processing. He let us take pictures. Samples were provided.

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!
