Stooped here for the chocolate tour but was disappointed in the price. The winery tour & tasting is free so why is the chocolate tour $8?! The chocolate for sale seemed over priced as well.

Sooo interesting and delicious. Who knew? Inexpensive at only $8 pp. Free samples throughout. You may never look at chocolate the same way again.

Of course he has done this tour probably hundreds of times, but he made it interesting nevertheless. You get five various samples throughout the tour and lots of... More

Randy did an excellent job educating us about chocolate. The tour was extremely interesting, and we got to sample a wide variety of chocolate! They gave us a discount coupon to use after the tour. I think they have the best chocolate I ever tasted!

The tasting tour was fun and delicious. Great for chocolate lovers and rainy days. Our tour guide Joe was great. He is very knowledgable and had a great sense of humor! The samples are delicious and would cost $8.00 if you were to buy them separately.
