So we paid $10 for a tour of an abandon bldg with chocolate machines. We got a total of 5 quarter sized pieces of chocolate. Save $9 and go buy a Hersey bar. These people are just taking advantage of tourist! Don't waste your time.

Very educational but not free. Why the alcohol tours are free and this family friendly stop isn't baffles me. Get a frozen hot chocolate on way out. Plan to make reservation. We picked a time after lunch and treated it as dessert.

This tour is great. The video is short but informative and the tour begins and ends with Chocolate samples. Our guide - Mike - was very informative and kept everyone involved in the tour. All adult tickets come with a $2.00 coupon off of a $4.00 purchase. From the gelato to the chocolate you can't go wrong. Plus, Miss Billie... More

Being a choclate lover, I enjoyed it! We got to sample several kinds of choclate and see how chocolate is made. Also, the shop has so much delicious treats it is hard to choose only a few.

Our tour guide Mike was great. Very informative and a down right funny guy... Or was his name Steve? No, Steve was what he told us to call him if we didn't like the tour. Seeeee, funny guy. Anyway, I recommend this tour to everyone. The history of chocolate is interesting and the chocolate tasting was awesome. Oh My Gosh!... More

We stopped here on our red train trolley tour. The tour last about 45 minutes. It is informative and well arranged. The guide was knowledgeable and friendly. This is an artisan chocolate factory. Their goal is to produce the best tasting chocolate and not just to produce quantities of chocolate. It does cost and you get a $2 coupon if... More

My boyfriend and I did the chocolate tasting tour, and we are so glad that we did. The tour was informative, and very fun. It was $8 per person and included a $2 off coupon for their store. The chocolates were all amazing, including a Key Lime Pie flavored chocolate. The fudge here was delicious as well.
