We explored the facility and a guide ran us over the history and facts about chocolate! We then decided that we would stay for a chocolate making class (extra $$), which was also great. We learnt more about the process of chocolate, roasted and crushed cocoa beans and then enjoyed a few different chocolate drinks. We then got to create... More

This has been a highlight of my time in Cuzco. I enrolled in the 4pm workshop and was early so was able to have a hot chocolate with chilli and honey, I sat outside on the balcony which has a lovely view. All the staff were very helpful and friendly. Josie was my teacher for the class and she sure... More

You get to see how they make chocolate and have a few free samples. Not that exciting but my wife did go to a chocolate making class the following day which she thought was good fun. The chocolate is high in coco content so doesn't really suit my tastes

Our tour was very informative. The nice guy from Barcelona who provided the tour was very nice, patient, and enthusiastic! He also spoke good English which is always a bonus in Peru. We then tried the brownie which was excellent and the hot chocolate which was ok.

Try to cocoa tea and buy it. And if you're a 'real chocolate' lover you'll love the different types of chocolate. If you like Cadbury, Hershey's or Mars you probably won't like the choc here. Get the cocoa tea instead.

Shop assistant was so rude and unkind. I thought if I had wanted to take part in their class she would be kind. Even when I left I said 'Chao!' but she turned her head and just saw me without reply.

Had a hot chocolate here - delicious. HOWEVER - the chocolate itself is not nice! My friend and I bought samples of different flavours.... We threw the majority of them in the bin (and we're chocoholics). They weren't cheap either. Think twice if you're buying as a gift... Especially if it's the dark chocolate.

A good alternative from all the ruins and great mountains in Peru... This is where you will indulge in 2 hour of warmth, laughter, and of course, chocolate. In my 2 weeks of trip in Peru, I put Choco Museo in the middle- it helped me recollect myself in many levels :)

Really interesting to learn the history of the cacao bean on the South American continent, delicious chocolate samples and funny tour guide. We sampled chocolate from beans that came from all over Peru. Our tour guide was Pedro. We love you Pedro.

Took the chocolate making course with a group of friends, awesome!! You get to shell the beans, roast them, grind them, taste a few types of chocolate drinks from different parts of the world, and then make your own chocolate bars with a variety of toppings and things to add in! Absolutely great@
