We have taken this tour before, but this time was the BEST! We learned so much more. Kevin had a great personality which really captured your interest. You can tell he really enjoys his job and has done his research.

I'd been here once before, and just had to go again. They have tours at set times, but they fill up fast so be sure to call ahead. And the tours end early (like 3:30 or something), so be sure to plan it in your day, you don't want to miss this! Very informative and interesting, you get to taste stuff, and the tour guides are hilarious. I would definitely recommend the frozen hot chocolate as a treat afterwards... you can take the chocolate home, and you can get gelato anywhere... but not frozen hot choc. And I've had it from several places, it's the best from Whetstone!

Tiffany took us on the tour. She's great!! Our party of 8 enjoyed her tour. We learned about the chocolate making process. We were able to taste the different chocolates as she explained them. We of course had to buy more of our favorites!!!

We have been looking forward to this since our last visit to St Augustine which is why I was so disappointed. Our tour guide, Josh, was terrible! He made terrible comments about where everyone lived. He openly criticized the front desk staff for booking more participants than he had chairs for. All of his comments during the tour were biting and sarcastic. This could have been entertaining and fun if we had a different guide. Instead we left with a bad taste in our mouth from him. If you see he is your guide ask if you can have a later time
