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

First, let me say, while we loved the shop (and ALL those samples of delicious chocolate), we did not take the tour. I can only assume we would have loved it even more if we had taken that tour. So, do yourself a favor and find out the tour times! The chocolate flavors are creative and wonderful. It's a great... More

For the fee charged for the tour you have complimentary bar and a host of chocolates to taste.. You can witness chocolate production from beans to the... More

This chocolate production starts with the harvesting of the cocoa beans all the way through the final product and the end result is an exceptional chocolate, The facility has tours which are very educational. Samples galore of... More

Wow, simply amazing chocolate! For $10, you get an hour tour of Theo Chocolate. You start out getting a brief history of Chocolate and the factory itself while enjoying samples of the chocolate. From there you go into the factory and learn how it is made and end up in sampling some more truffles and specialty pieces. At the end... More

Was really pleased with the tour! $10, an hour later, a hair net, chocolate samples galore and we are all loving Theos and know a lot mode about how the chocolate is made. The tour is well run and I imagine the kids would like it - especially since you get to walk the factory floor.

Had no plans to go on the factory tour until recommended by friends just before our trip. At $10, it is very reasonable. Very interesting background on how the beans are grown and sourced, and then a tour of the factory floor. And of course, chocolate samples...they make great chocolate here! Ended up buying more afterwards (of course). Only one... More

It was very interesting to see how chocolate is made lots of delicious samples! Our guide was very knowledgable and friendly. The gift shop has tons of items for sale and i thought they were fairly reasonable. This is a great tour that is only about an hour long.

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
