Completely wonderful tour with Danielle as guide (like some other reviewers here). She was terrifically knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and responsive to types of visitors and all levels of inquiry. Fun for all ages (over 6), lots of samples, and just the right amount of information about why organic and free trade certifications matter. Did I mention the chocolate is delicious with... More

I've been on tons of tours, paid and free, for all sorts of things all around the world. For the most part, I find they vastly enrich the travel experience. I usually recommend them to everyone, but I found this one to be very lacking. I'm a HUGE foodie and chocolate lover. I can't resist good chocolate, so this was... More

Our tour guide, Danielle, was fantastically entertaining in a "not in your face" kind of way and so passionate about chocolate and the free trade, organic way that Theo does things. There was an abundance of samples as well, so be warned! Their chocolate really is delicious, and such a small factory to learn how much they produce each day... More

We heard this was a fun place to tour so we reserved a weekday tour near the end of our Seattle trip (factory only runs on weekdays, so there is much more to see). We did not regret it. Our tour guide, Danielle I think, was so personable, comfortable in front of a group, and very knowledgeable on the chocolate... More

Walked in off the street on a Saturday morning for a chocolate 'factory tour'. They took our $10 per person and no one mentioned the factory was not operational at weekends. If you want to watch a bit of video and see idle machinery, view marble-topped cooling tables in the small kitchen area. then you might enjoy a 60 minute... More

We visited the factory on the recommendation of our chocoholic daughter. The tour was interesting. The best part was that we got to taste at least a dozen different types of chocolate. We felt good about spending a small fortune on "souvenir" chocolate at this socially conscious company. Go there. You will be glad you did.

Gear up with a hair net and venture inside for an hour tour. Start with an informative presentation about cocoa production, then take the plant tour. Best part is tasting the samples. At the end of the tour, each guest receives a chocolate bar and led to the candy gift shop. Some products are sold exclusively there. But take note:... More

This company is very small when compared to Hershey or Cadbury - other places we have toured. Theo provides a $10 tour of their factory which produces organic chocolate made from beans. Both the tour and our guide were very interesting although it was very, very hot in the actual factory. You do get to eat chocolate samples but, even... More

What is a visit to Seattle without a stop at the Theo chocolate factory. We were just planning on a bit of sampling and buying but arrived just in time for a tour. We all looked adorable in our hairnets, our tour guide, Danielle was the most effervescent person I have ever met. She did a completely amazing tour-interesting, informative... More

OMG! Talk about a chocolate lovers dream! You get to sample at least 15 different chocolates and talk about good....yum yum....we all were on a sugar high when we left. Of course we all purchased enough chocolate to pay for all the samples we consumed!! Great place to tour.
