“Tastefully interesting”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

While surfing the net I discovered the chocolate tour at Whetstone. It was fun, interesting, tasty and lasted just an hour. I learned alot about one of my favorite foods and we were given samples and encouraged to be critical tasters. I would definitely recommend for something fun to do. Our guide was very knowledgeable and fun - the store after the tour offered many items, from sauce to t-shirts, packaged and individual artisian chocolates. Yum!

“A gourmet's introduction to chocolate”
Reviewed July 14, 2013 via mobile

We were initially sceptical about touring a chocolate factory but we were pleasantly surprised and learnt alot about the production of chocolate from farm to market and the various steps of production. Tiffany, our guide was highly motivated and it was clear that she loved her job and we enjoyed sharing her enthusiasm, not to mention the mutiple samples that were part of the tour. Try and include this on your itinerary, you won't be disappointed.

“An enjoyable tour whether you like chocolate or not.”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

This is an interesting tour that provides you with a specific viewpoint of this chocolate manufacturer. The different types of ingredients used in the process as well as the different types of process are clearly explained and the samples provided add to the tour's thoroughness. My only criticism is that our tour guide somewhat oversold the products but her enthusiasm did make the tour that much more enjoyable.

“Second time around”
Reviewed July 12, 2013

Wife and I took the tour in 2011, and this time we brought the kids with us. Still a great tour with an energetic and fun tour guide (I think her name was Tiffani). Our eight year old loved it. Oh, and the chocolate is fantastic! Make sure to sample one of the chocolate wine syrups. Awesome!

“Worth the money and not a bit too long”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

Tiffany, our tour guide, was great. She answered all questions and offered a great amount of incite into the chocolate industry. The movie explains the cultivation of the bean. Also, she explained why the family decided not to stay as a large company but rather stay as a regional company. All of the sample candies were explained as to how they were made. The company store was also great. We spent our money on first class chocolate, etc. Tiffany did this excellent presentation - and she is pregnant.
