We toured the factory on a Sunday. Even though we didn't get to see the factory actually making the chocolate, the tour guide made up for it by giving us two surprise tastings. The tour itself comes with 5 free tasting during the tour, so to get 2 free ones made it worth it! The guide was full of life... More

Very nice tour and very informative. We went there on a Monday and unfortunately the factory is closed so we were not able to see it running. There was one gentleman there making some chocolates on one machine and he went to another to show us how the wrapping is done. You are given samples throughout, we got 5 different... More

My wife and I decided to go on the chocolate tour sort of spur of the moment and I'm really glad we did. The tour was reasonably priced at only $8. The tour lasted about an hour and we had Mike as our tour guide. He took through the factory and showed us how chocolate was made and what types... More

As residents of UK we have all visited the well known Cadbury Factory near Birmingham. This tour was far more informative and the chocolate far superior in quality.

We went on a tour led by Mike. He was hilarious! We absolutely loved every minute of it. There were two young kids in the group and he went above and beyond in getting them to interact! I would reccomend this tour to anyone. The chocolate sampling was an awesome bonus!

WOW! Great factory tour where you taste several of their chocolates and of course they have a nice large shop where you can buy their chocolates and ice cream to your heart's content. Very nice tour.

This chocolate tour is awesome!!!!!! Well worth the money!! It was great to see how the chocolate is really made and how they got started. You have to wear a hair net because you are going into the actual factory. There are many tastings along the way!!! Learned the specific ingredients in what they make and learned about the benefits... More

We did the Whetstone Chocolate Factory tour as our last stop in town, and it was a great choice. In it, you get a little history of chocolate, details on different kinds of chocolate, and a tour of the facility as they make the chocolate. You get samples throughout the tour. The tour guide was knowledgable, funny, entertaining, and never... More

I really enjoyed this tour and not just because of the samples they give out. ( : It's a very informative tour. The tour guide we had was very funny and kept it interesting. Just make sure you have time as it is about a 45 minute tour, most of it sitting though. We almost missed the last trolly back... More
