Excellent tour for family and adults. Great history and cultural lesson. Wonderful explanations. You make your own chocolate from scratch and take it home with you. You get to sample more chocolate then you expect. Kids loved it. The experience is just right on time - about 1 hours so an active 6 year old can handle it. Miguel (guide)... More

This is a great activity to do with the kids. Educational and fun! You get to see how chocolate is made and get to put your chef hat on (literally!) and make some chocolate to take home. The people there are really nice and friendly. They even helped me by calling a cab and looking out for it to come... More

The place was well decorated. Our guide was pleasant, helpful, and informative. It was fun and interesting to create our own chocolate patty. I plan on going again on my next visit to perfect my patty!!!

Three of us did the tour and we were the only guests which was fun. The chocolate is very good and the process was interesting. Our guide was a riot, but had a thick accent so was hard to understand at times. Overall great experience.

We went to the Factory as my girlfriend's loves your chocolate. We had a quick tour and taste testing and ended up buying my new favourite - chocolate cover cranberries and raisins. Amazing to see where the chocolate comes from and how it is made. Even to see the staff packaging by hand.
