Well worth the $8/adult $6/child. Great tour guide and great samples of a wide assortment of chocolates. $2 discount retail pet adult ticket is a nice bonus.

If you are a chocolate lover, you should consider this tour! Lots of humor (with Joe as your guide) and a whole education on the history and process of making chocolate. A tour comes complete with sampling several chocolates. Bonus is their gelato selections. The pineapple basil was really good!

Discover how chocolate is made from start to finish. Great for all ages. So worth the small admission fee with plenty of samples in the factory and store. Cannot walk out empty handed! And great gifts for all! A definite must see in St. Augustine!!

Decided to visit St Augustine and heard the tour of Whetstone Chocolate was a great tour. Booked the tour and had the best tour guide Aaron. Learned all about Cacao and how it becomes chocolate and the best part is you get 5 free samples of the chocolate they make. Great tour,very educational.

What a great learning experience! The chocolate was delicious, and seeing the machinery and some of it being made was awesome. Our tour guide was wonderful! You also get a $2.00 off coupon per person for purchase of chocolate. Yummy!
