We went on a weekday and ended up being the only people on the tour (2 adults and one 8 year old kid). I never thought I would say this- but we got alll chocolate out by the end of the tour! The samples were very generous. My son enjoyed the samples and looking at the factory floor.

It's an hour-long factory tour which starts with a short documentary about the production of cacao from the rainforest of the Congo to the Pacific Northwest for final processing. We got to taste the cacao flakes before and after other ingredients are added. The narrator is very knowledgeable about the product. We only got to see the factory from one spot, not wander all around it. After the $12 tour, you get a 20% discount off the products. Free roadside parking available if you go early.

Short presentation, not a typical factory tour. More about how this company is giving jobs to the town in Africa where the chocolate is sourced. We came during Thanksgiving weekend. Not worth bringing more Christmas visitors. Candy was only so-so.

Amber was a delight to meet. She was witty, informative, provided lots of treats, and professional. Theo chocolate is unique and delicious. The tour was over the hour time but worth the information, and visuals being able to see inside of the factory. There is not a lot of walking involved and is great for all ages. We also received a discount coupon for items purchased onsite after the tour. A great deal.

Lovely chocolate shop with generous samples. I have come here 4 times in the last 1.5 years, anytime I visit my son at nearby UW. I have yet to take the factory tour, but look forward to it on my next visit. Also have enjoyed walking around the Fremont neighborhood for coffee and Fainting Goat gelato!

Theo Chocolate, both the factory and the retail store, are favorites of mine. The tour is great fun (lots of sampling, lasts somewhere between 30-45 min. ) and very informative. Make reservations in advance, as they fill up fast. I take out-of-town guests there often. The chocolate is top-notch and fair trade. Try it--you'll love it.

In my opinion, Theo’s is a local treasure. I have long been a fan of their chocolate and always enjoyed visits to the retail store, but the tour is definitely a fun and worthwhile experience. I had no idea that Theo’s imported their beans from around the world and that they produce everything in their factory starting with the raw beans. It is an interesting and fascinating process and the machinery to make it happen is amazing. There was not much production happening on the last tour of the day on the weekend day that we toured, so if you want to see the factory in action, you might want to check to see when they are actually making chocolate. They do have videos that show the process in action, so even if they aren’t making chocolate on your tour, the videos do a great job of showing the process. Tours book up quite a ways ahead, so be sure to plan ahead if you are looking for a specific time and date. They are quite generous with samples, both in the retail store and on the tour. Purchases following the tour are 20% off. The tour is a little over an hour. There are plenty of restaurants, parks and shops in the area and a walking path along the canal across the street from Theo’s if you want to make a day of it in Fremont. If you’re visiting from out of town, the troll under the Aurora bridge is well worth the short side trip. And not far from Theo’s (about 2.5 miles) - at Kerry Park on Queen Anne Hill you will have the best views of the city, water and mountains for some fabulous photos of your Seattle visit.

I was hoping this would be like the other tours we have taken in the pastime Parma Ham, Parmesan, Distilleries, Vineyards, etc I would not Recommend this as it was very boring and did not get to me hands on at all. They should us where it was manufactured but it was not in the process. The tutorial sitting on benches for 30 minutes was definitely not worth it. I would honestly Rather read the info on my own. Very boring;(
