This tour came highly recommended, and we had to try it!

Spent several fascinating hours wandering the grounds, immersed in fruits that, with permission, we got to eat straight from the tree. A wonderful tasting and smelling experience. The end was chocolate-tastic. I mean...a LOT of chocolate. And it was FANTASTIC. Wish all of the options were tasted were available in the store! The only squicky thing for me was kids sticking fingers in their noses/mouths, then reaching into the bowl of chocolate pieces that was being passed around. Would be great if parents were asked to pull chocolate out with their fingers or, better yet, if small tongs were offered.

Our guide was so great, the energy was palpable and you could tell he really enjoyed what he did. Would definitely come again!

We attended the tour on December 27, 2019. This was a great experience and thoroughly enjoyable. I can honestly say I was "chocolated out" by the end of this tour! You get to try a LOT of very rich chocolate but you get so much more. The knowledge of the tour guides was great and their passion is obvious. I will never balk at paying more for "good" chocolate again after learning all about it. I highly recommend this experience.

Great tour! There’s way more to chocolate than a Hershey’s kiss. Very knowledgeable guide and a great place to learn something new for young or old! Bring everyone!

Awesome! so glad you liked the tour and chocolate. It's a challenging lifestyle farming cacao, many years of hard work just to make some chocolate bars. It is very rewarding when folks can appreciate it. Thanks again

Layla conducted our tour. It is obvious that she is passionate about her job. She enjoys what she does, and lives her chocolate. She led us on a tour through the farm, explaining the different types of cacao growing on the farm, as well as other assorted fruits. We ended with a taste testing of several different chocolates. We would highly recommend this tour!
