What a great, informative tour. If you've ever wanted to learn anything about the chocolate making process then this tour is for you. It was really interesting learning how the entire process works, right from where and how they get the beans all the way through to the final stage of actually making the product. We also got to sample... More

This is a great tour that is only about an hour long. It was very interesting to see how chocolate is made and they held our attention by providing lots of delicious samples! Our guide was very knowledgable and friendly. This would be a great thing to do on a rainy day. The gift shop has tons of items for... More

If you've ever had a question about how chocolate candy is made, look no further than Theo. You will learn a lot at this small artisan factory about the process as well as their particular philosophy (two of their selling points are being organic and fair trade). Samples aplenty both during the tour as well as in the gift shop.

This was a really interesting education on the entire process of chocolate making. It was really nice, as the tours are small and intimate, and the tour guide was really knowledgeable. We got to sample all the different types of chocolate, and even a "nib," or an unprocessed cocoa bean. The gift shop had many delectable treats in it as... More

And what I mean by the headline is this: The tour itself is informative and the guide seemed very knowledgeable. But the tour is mostly a classroom style lecture with what I guess you could call viewing the machinery in the factory, kitchen, etc. There was plenty of chocolate-sampling. My objection, however, is that we had children with us, including... More

This was stop on a tour. I was excited to see so many chocolate flavors with 70% cocoa. Lots of samples in the store and the chocolate I brought home was fabulous. I would like to come back for the tour. Expensive but so worth it!!!

Theo offers a tour of their chocolate factory. Lasts about an hour. Simple but interesting tour showing all the steps of chocolate making. AND, lots of samples! Makes a nice stop while touring the Fremont area in Seattle.

My husband, friend and I went on the Theo chocolate factory tour after reading reviews and looking for something different and fun to do in Seattle. Overall, we enjoyed the tour. It was interesting and informative, but different than what we had expected. Things I/we found particularly good: - the online booking/reservation system is excellent! We had to change the... More

I enjoyed the tour of the factory in Fremont, but the chocolate is just above average. I lived in Switzerland, so maybe my standards aren't reasonable.
