This was a wonderful tour, showing how the business progressed and its contribution to the WWII war effort. Very relaxing and interesting.

This tour is a must! I love the tasting part, Ha! My kids loved it, they were very intrigued the process of making the chocolate. They end up buying two bags of chocolate covered pretzels. They also loved the tasting part too. Oh, the tour guy was really funny, he made the tour fun!★★★

I visited whetstones today and took the tour. I was very impressed with the guide mike. He was very informative and funny at the same time. The chocolate was delicious. I would strongly recommend this tour.

The factory tour is a blast! Learn about chocolate and how it is made! The chocolate samples are great but also a little educational. The chocolate is delicious. Worth a stop while visiting St. Augustine.

The tour was interesting and the guide excited and knowledgeable but they don't run the factory on Monday or Tuesday and didn't tell us that until we had already bought our tickets. They gave us an extra sample but I wanted to see the machines in action- A little disappointing.
