The factory was down for maintenance and the guide was not that great. The candy was so-so. If I had a company like this the tours would be free! Don't be suckered into buying a ticket at around $8.00.

We called and made a reservation, we were early (which for me is quite an accomplishment) and spoke to our guide before the tour, but nobody mentioned that the factory was actually not operating b/c of maintenance. This wasnt told to us until we had paid and started the tour...I was not happy; we would have come back another day.... More

Tour guides were funny as well as informative. Of course, the chocolate tastings were the highlight of the tour! Inexpensive and fun! I would recommend this tour for anyone visiting St. Augustine. Yummy way to spend part of an afternoon!

Don' t miss this one hour chocolate factory tour! This was definitely one of the highlights of our St Augustine stay. Our tour host was Ty and he was animated, informed and most enjoyable. History, incredible chocolate tastings and impeccably clean production held us captive and then we shopped for every kind of cacao imaginable =))) A pre- empt to... More

We were in St. Augustine and heard about this factory tour and decided to check it out. So glad we did! We had Ty as our tour guide, hysterical, and very informative, and got to sample different chocolates. Highly recommend this tour!!

Went here with friends of ours that were visiting St Augustine and what a fantastic tour. Not only did we get a great history of the factory and chocolate production in St Augustine of course we got samples of chocolate, what is not to like about that? Having just moved here a few years ago I had no idea that... More

Awesome tour. Our guide Ty was personable and very witty. My daughter was thrilled to "help" him pass out the hairnets. The samples were delicious and I learned quite a lot about the chocolate making process. A great way to cool off after exploring historic St.Augustine. ****the gelato was really good too****

The $8 per adult ticket price might seem like a lot, but you can get discounts with Old Town Trolley ($5) or any of the coupons in tourist printouts ($7). Plus, you'll receive 8-9 samples of chocolate and fudge. That's less than you would pay to buy the chocolate outright in the shop, and you wouldn't be able to buy... More
