We thoroughly enjoyed our three hour tour with Paul, the owner. It was interesting to hear the story of the business and to learn about the production of chocolate. It was a relaxed pace and the time flew by. Would highly recommend.

I loved this tour, learning about how to grow and make chocolate. Paul had great information and we saw a number of birds, frogs, and animals along the way.
