From beginning to end this was the best Tour we have ever had. We homeschool our children so all of the information give was above and beyond what we were expecting. The owner/ host was so engaging and made sure it was easy to understand for our younger children. I honestly will never look at chocolate the same... #getchocolatewasted 😂😂

Our group of four friends took the Chocolate Farm and Waterfall tour with Lyra the owner of Taste of Belize, what a fantastic day! Lyra is from the area and we got a much better understanding of the people and culture of Belize. Our only regret was that we didn't take this tour first when we arrived. The Ixcacao Chocolate Farm tour was fantastic and the lunch cooked by Adelayne was one of the best meals we gad during our stay, that says a lot because all of our meals were delicious. The people in Belize are very kind and welcoming we would go back in a heartbeat! We spent Christmas 2016 in Paradise.

Had a chance to walk around the store. The staff was very helpful. Samples are available. We were able to taste the drinking chocolate. There is an option to attend a session with a fee as well.

If you are into chocolate, this is a place to visit! Not only can you learn what goes into making the delicious chocolate, you can catch workers making it. A large variety of chocolate products are available for purchase. The only trouble was getting it all in a suitcase.

Testimonial Tours & Travel was amazing. You can't go wrong when you plan your Central America travel with them! Delia, our guide, was so accommodating and flexible. She was more like a friend than a guide. Our driver, Alfredo, was a safe and excellent driver as well as a genuinely great person! The Chocolate Factory was a cool stop in Antigua. Be sure to try ALL the samples! The chocolate flavored alcoholic beverages are quite tasty! There take credit cards and the rate was better for me than their cash prices!
