We did the tour for the first time today after hearing about it from several different friends who have recently gone. They like to use organic and fair trade products which is nice. The tour is about an hour long and they have you wear a hair net during the tour. The first half of the tour is a presentation... More

We went on the factory tour for my son's birthday and we weren't disappointed. It wasn't just walking us through and letting us loose in the store, they actually sat us down in a classroom setting and explained the whole process through pictures, samples and information on sourcing. Who knew that cocoa pods actually grow on the side of the... More

This chocolate factory tour was enlightening. It is not too long and who doesn't like chocolate? A good place to take visitors to Seattle.

You can smell the deliciousness for blocks. Very cool factory that offers tours (I've never been on the tour). The store sells all the good stuff. Extremely interesting variety. A great place to visit and to buy for loved ones.

Around 30 minutes interactive lesson on how you get from the bean to the factory. Next is around 30 minute tour of the factory itself. You will need to wear a hair net and possibly a beard net (even for my mustache). They produce millions of chocolate bars. The tour cost $10 but you get a free ($2.00 bar at... More

Have been on a tour before and fun to go again. You need to book in advance on their website, so you will need to be prepared. Otherwise you can stop into their retail area and get some samples and very fresh chocolate. Also gives you an appreciation for awesome chocolate.

It delivered on everything! Great chocolate, great tour, and the for the price($10) you really can't beat it as you probably eat more than $10 in chocolate on the tour itself. Well worth a stop!

It is chocolate heaven the minute you step in the store. You can have a feast of the unlimited supply of free samples available throughout the store! The coconut mint flavor is a must try.

This tour was on a Sunday so no production was up and running. You start the tour with a very knowledgable tour guide who will gladly answer any questions you might have. the "samples" are broken bits and pieces. Once you enter the production area you are required to where a hair net and men a net for beards and... More
