“Family day out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2013

As my daughter and boyfriend were over from Edinburgh and we decided a trip to the Tayto factory was a good idea .In total there was seven of us we headed to Tandragee. We all had to get dressed in protective clothing, take off our jewellery . Even the men had to put on beard masks and as my daughter has her nose pierced and wore a sporting blue plaster over it..We had a good laugh dressing up and having our pictures taken .The tour was excellent , plenty to see and lots information on how they make and store the crisps and all of the different flavours and lots and lots of different kinds of crisps to try and take home. Its a trip well worth trying , excellant price as well £5 adults and £4 students and children

What an amazing tour! Our tour guide Jill was fantastic really informative and entertaining. Not many company's would let you walk round a working crisp factory. On top of the tour we got to meet Pat Tayto and got to sample loads of free crisps. Well worth the £5 entrance fee. If you do decide to visit make sure you book in advance as I don't think you can just turn up and go on the tour.

“Really worth a visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2013

Having intended to do this tour for years whilst home visiting family, we finally managed to get a slot (you do need to book quite far in advance). Went with husband and two children, and we all thought it was brilliant. Great guide, and loads of crisps, much to the kids delight !! So interesting to see the whole process from the muddy potatoes (which were rolling off the back of the truck when we visited) through to slicing, frying and packaging. We all loved the hot crisps fresh from the fryer. Definitely value for money - especially when you throw in the 6 pack that each person is given at the end.

“AAAGGGHH Excitement!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2013

That's how I felt when I booked this tour a few weeks ago....and I wasnt disapointed!

My wife & I took this tour on the 25th March and found it both fun & educational, The Tour is kinda geared towards the U-10s BUT dont let that put you off, as no matter what age you are, you will LOVE this tour.

We were initially met by Jennifer and then our main Tour Guide was Charlene. Both were really friendly and you could tell that Charlene is passionate about her knowledge of crisps!

The tour takes you from seeing the whole process from Potatoe to Packet....apart from the secret ingredient room!

For £5 you get the tour, a free 6 pack of crisps and the chance to meet Me Tayto!

Go on, you know you want to book this tour!
