We recently had the opportunity to be in St. Augustine and visited the chocolate factory. We did a 55 minute tour with Joe. It was quite informative and Joe did a great job. He has a wonderful sense of humor. The samples were terrific and we left with several items that we purchased. Get there a little before your tour... More

my wife and I were in town for our babymoon and since I got to tour the distillery, she of course chose the chocolate factory. It did not disappoint, Sheryl was out tour guide and did an amazing job (even snuck us a extra bite of fudge on the tour). Loved her and this place, will recommend to friends.

The chocolate factory tour was great. Cheryl Five-Star was the bomb! 😉 The tour lasted about 50 minutes, but it was split up. There were sitting segments, walking segments, and standing segments. (Anyone could enjoy this tour.) You were able to taste 5 different chocolates and learn about what makes each one unique. If you normally hate dark chocolate, they... More

We had a wonderful experience, learned a lot about chocolate, how it's made, and what makes the chocolates different. Had many samples as well. The best part of our tour was Cheryl our tour guide. She was fun, humorous, and made the tour special and interesting! Fun for all!!

We went in for ice cream (which was delicious) and got some fudge to take home for later. Wow! We got mint chocolate chip and chocolate/peanut butter. My daughter and I both agreed it may have been the best fudge we ever had, especially that mint chocolate chip. I regret we didn't get to do the chocolate tour. If you're... More

My girlfriend and I went on this tour and it was just awesome. Our tour guide Joe was funny, full of information, and showed genuine passion for his job. You could tell Joe enjoyed doing what he did. I learned a whole lot and thanks to him I could remember the 6 ingredients and the different processes. I made a... More

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Our guide was Randy and you can tell he enjoys his job. He is very funny and very informative. He explains the process of making chocolate from the start of harvesting to the end product. On the tour you get the chance to sample several chocolates and see how they are made.... More

Bet you learn a lot from this tour! It was a fun tour and I urge you to go ahead and treat yourself to a frozen hot chocolate afterward (if you can fit any more chocolate in you).
