We all enjoyed our visit to the chocolate factory! It actually was a favorite thing with the kids. We learned how chocolate is made and processed and turned into what we eat. Michael our tour guide was excellent and informative and even funny at times. It will be the best $8 you spend on your trip to this city.

We recently toured the Whetstone Chocolate Factory for $8/person. I thought the tour was very interesting but felt rushed in the factory. My husband was disappointed how little chocolate you could sample from the tour (6 different kinds) and how small the tasting squares were. I thought it was very neat to see the equipment in action and to hear... More

I thoroughly enjoyed our tour of the Whetstone Chocolate Factory. Our tour guide made the visit fun and shared enough chocolate to whet our appetites for using the coupon we received with our fee for the tour. I learned a lot about the process for making chocolate.

Our tour was awesome! Thank You to our tour guide Aaron for making our visit pleasant, fun & a memory our family will always enjoy! He has a wonderful sense of humor & was very knowledgeable & informative! Despite the fact that our 18 month old was tired, fussy & teething, he didn't make us feel bad at all &... More

Our tour guide knew almost nothing that wasn't in his script. Very disappointing. The chocolate is definitely worth a visit though. Just skip the lame tour.

The history of Whetstone is pretty interesting and the tour guide gives lots of information, if you can stand the corny jokes. Awesome to walk in the factory itself and see the chocolates being made and wrapped. The product is delicious and the hairnets are funny.

This is a very interesting tour of this small chocolate factory including tasting of several different chocolate samples. It was made especially interesting because of Joe, a wonderful entertaining tour guide. Felt like we were old friends by the end of the tour.

It was interesting to see the history of chocolate and how it is made. The tour is $8, which seems a little pricing for 6 bites of chocolate. The factory is interesting. Aaron, our tour guide, seemed so ill-at-ease that it made my wife and I uncomfortable. He really needs to work on his delivery! We laughed because it was... More
