The tour guides were really welcoming and explained in detail about all aspects of the tour guide. It was very interactive which kept me wanting to learn more. Got everyone involved with the tasting and making of chocolate where we learnt about the history of chocolate, tried different types of chocolate, made our own chocolate and then finished with trying chocolates from all around the world. It was very informative.

The chocolate experience was a highlight of our trip! The leader, Sandy, was unbelievable! So knowledgable, so engaging (even for a sixteen year old boy), funny, and friendly! Sandy made chocolate tasting a making seem like so much more than an edible experience- it was a learning experience too! So worth it!

We are still raving about the fun we had making our very own bars of chocolate from moulds and tasting a vast array of chocolate with the tour guide, Augusta who impressed us with her knowledge and humour. We were 2 aunties treating our niece and nephew! We will be talking about it for ages to come.

We had a great time, learned lots, and got to try SO much chocolate - highly recommend! Our guide (Lolla?) was phenomenal

Great experience, tour guide very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. I must for chocolate lovers
