It was a chocoholics dream come true. Our tour guide Joe provided a very entertaining and educational trip down the road of our favorite desert. We very highly recommend this tour for health purposes as well as the San Sebastián winery next door. All good thing healthy 😄

Being a chocolate lover, this tour was very interesting and informative. I had no clue in the difference between chocolates and even the companies that produce some of my favorite chocolate candy. I left the factory with a better understanding of good, quality chocolate and the entire process of artisan chocolates. Ty, our tour director, was the best. He kept... More

You must take time to visit this factory for a tour. You leave with a wealth of knowledge about the different types of chocolate and how's it made. Our tour guide Ty was full of information and fun. Great Chocolates but there was other items to purchase as well...please go and enjoy!

There was a short video, then a trip through the candy making portion of the factory. It is a small factory but they do make delicious chocolate. You get several tastes of chocolate as you go through the tour. Great tour guide!

Best chocolate tour we have been on! From the tour guide, Joe who was very entertaining, to the quality of the chocolate. Free samples along the tour and a ton of information! Well worth the $8 admission to the tour!!! At the end you receive $2 off anything you purchase at the shop. Definitely worth it!!!!
