    We enjoyed our experience at the chocolatarium! From learning the origin of chocolates to making our own one was really fun! We got to taste chocolates from different countries too! Also, our guide Lutta was exceptional. Just quite sad that gin and tonic chocolate was not available in the shop at that time. Did not expect that I will love that!

    What an experience! Our guide, I can’t remember her name but she did mention she was from Sweden if that helps hahah! She was absolutely brilliant! Our experience right from the Jungle room right to the very end was absolutely amazing! Getting to taste so many chocolates from different years, countries and times was amazing! The tasting room was just awesome. I highly recommend the Maple & Bacon Pancake chocolate… absolutely delicious! Will 100% be back!

    Amazing experience! I highly recommend and it was definitely my favourite tour I have ever done and my favourite tour in Edinburgh. The value is amazing for the price. You get to try so many chocolates, make your own chocolate, try 3 different drinks, and learn all about chocolate! Highly recommend and the tour guide Sandy was very knowledgeable and passionate about chocolate. They also have a wide range of selections of chocolate in the shop and really beautiful looking sets.
