Really a great tour. I compare it with the Britt coffee tour. This is a very informative tour where one comes out filled with knowledge about chocolates. The taste tasting is something to remember. Great for families with kids Friendly staff

Great experience around the chocolat process (fruits/beans to chocolate) and test with different flavours. It is also a great opportunity to walk on the longest tree canopy bridge and see animals (snakes, sloths, bullet hunt....). I recommend this tour.

Most people think they know a lot about chocolate, just because they eat it. This tour and shopping extravaganza should not be missed.

I went here after reading some reviews with my family, including two young children (1 & 6), and grandparents (76). We came after they had started a tour, but they were so sweet as to offer us the quick version, including making our own chocolates,...More
