We were really looking forward to the chocolate workshop as i have always been interested in the process and of course making my own chocolate! Though it was really good fun and the teacher is very enthusiastic, the class was not as interactive as we would have liked as we ended up just watching the teacher do most of the... More

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED Things to do in Granada - the chocolate museum, on the website I found they had chocolate workshops and tours - I'm a chocolate fanatic and this was an opportunity I would not miss. We signed up for a workshop in the morning and were the only 2 in it. Our guide spoke excellent English and had a... More

Did not realize the place had a tour- stopped in for coffee and dessert... The table we sat at was private and quaint ( set in a gorgeous garden). We lost track of time talking and enjoying the ambiance . Coffee and dessert was great too! Would definitely return,..

Our 5-6 year olds had an awesome time!! The instructor kept their attention for 2 straight hours. It was hot, but the kids were more than happy to pay attention. The chocolate at the store is over priced and not very good, but the class was great for the kids!! Great instructor!!

We had so much fun learning about how chocolate was discovered and first made. We loved learning and doing the same steps that people did thousands of years ago. And the results were very tasty. Then, the chocolate bars we made were such a treat to get to eat.

The exhibits were informative, the staff extremely friendly and helpful. We did not take the 'make your own' class nor the day trip to the farm - but wish we had allowed time for those experiences too. We read the signs (in the front room and back on the interior courtyard), drank iced chocolate (quite excellent!), and bought some bars.... More

We had so much fun taking a class with Kenny learning to make chocolate. We roasted the beans, took the shells off, smashed the chocolate to a paste with our pestal and mortor all before making our own 70% chocolate bars. We had a blast and learned a lot. Very fun class if you want to escape the heat.

One of the best things for kids in Granada. My kids (3,6,9) all loved it and learned a lot about chocolate production. It's hands on and entertaining. The guy was funny and cool and at the end you have made your own chocolate bar. $11 for kids worth every cent.

We are HUGE chocolate fans and I have to say this was an incredible experience for chocolate lovers. Learning to make our own chocolate starting with raw cacao beans was awesome. We made three delicious chocolate drinks (Mayan, Aztec, and European) and our own custom chocolate bars. Ismael was a fun, energetic and knowledgable teacher. Highly recommended!
