Very informative and the kids had a blast. Our host was very knowledgeable and we learned a lot about making chocolate, and the samples were great !! Well worth the money.

We were in the very first tour at the new location at Kupa'a Farm. Outstanding in every way. The drive to the remote location is easy and on good roads, but takes you off the main thoroughfares and exposes you to a less "touristified" Maui....More

We drove quite some distance to see pictures of chocolate trees. Truly. They had nice chocolate tastings but they were from chocolates all over the world.
