Joe? (older guy with glasses), led our tour. He was very personable and knowledgeable. He interacted with everyone and made the tour very fun and educational. Would definitely recommend this to anyone visiting. For the price, you can't beat it! Plus, their chocolate is DELICIOUS.

We saw this driving in to St Augustine. Then several times we heard it recommended. On one tour we were told about their Frozen Hot Chocolate drink. It was incredible. We ended up going back twice to get one.

This was a great tour! The price was reasonable and you got to sample different kinds of chocolate during the tour. Our tour guide was extremely informative. After a short movie, we donned our hair nets and crossed over into the factory itself. There, our guide explained the different machines they used to process the cocoa beans into the form... More

Went on the factory tour here in St. Augustine with Ty as our guide. After having toured Kilwin's and the Morley company/Sanders... I thought it would be similar.. but to my surprise I learned so much more about chocolate here! It was time well spent!

On our visit to St. Augustine we visited the Whetstone Chocolate Factory. There is a shop attached which serves the best chocolate ever. A specialty of the shop is a chocolate drink which is a frozen hot chocolate. It is to die for! The tour illustrates the making of the chocolate from bean to the end product. The actual factory...

This was awesome!!! First of all, I didn't realize reservations for the tour were available, but when a group with reservations didn't show up, the great staff at Whetstone squeezed us in. The tour was fun and informative! My 7 and 10 year old were kept interested the entire time. It was just a great way to spend an hour.... More

Our tour guide Walter was great. Funny and energetic. They give you quite a few chocolates to taste and we even got a fudge sample (delicious). It was interesting and fun. I recommend trying the frozen hot chocolate after your tour...it was amazing. I couldn't resist buying some key lime chocolate shells and they are so yummy. Tons of flavors,... More
