I took a group of kids here recently as part of our summer camp travel experience. The tour guide was an older man who was informative, funny, and really kept our kids engaged! The kids enjoyed the tour of the factory as well as learning about the origins of chocolate and what sorts of products Whetstone has offered to the community. They gave our samples throughout the tour which was nice and gave the kids - and adults alike - something to look forward to. The tour also requires that you were hairnets which created a lot of fun photo ops for our students. I would recommend this tour to everyone!

Our tour guide (his name was Ty) did a really good job explaining the chocolate making process in a captivating, informative, and fun manor, and I would highly recommend taking this tour when in St. Augustine, Florida. The chocolates at the store were excellent!

We went on a tour to see how chocolate is made. Joe was a great guide. We were able to sample 5 pieces of chocolate and some fudge. We went into the factory and saw how they make the different shapes and wrap them. It cost $8 each but you were given a $2 off coupon per ticket so the cost was not bad at all!

Great tour with lots of free chocolate to taste! Joe was our tour guide and he was funny and very knowledgeable! Love how they use actual people to make the chocolate and you see them on the tour. Lots of different types of chocolate to taste and a coupon for the store! My 7 year old LOVED IT and so did we! Must go if your in the area!

If you're in St. Augustine, I would highly recommend the Whetstone Candy Tour. It's both fun, educational, and delicious! Mike, our tour guide, was so funny and knowledgeable. This is the second time I've taken the tour and I would do it again in a heartbeat. It doesn't hurt that the chocolate samples are delicious as well. Make your reservations in advance.
