    10000% better than Cadbury world! Bogi was our guide and she was amazing! Very knowledgable, full of enthusiasm and a really good laugh! We enjoyed learning all about where chocolate comes from and the process it goes through! Making our own chocolate was really fun and then tasting different chocolate was even better!

    Sandy our guide was really friendly and informative. The day was so much fun. We really enjoyed it. There was so much chocolate on offer to taste it really was great value for money. The chocolate making was really fun and so many ingredients to choose from. This was a highlight of our trip.

    Absolutely brilliant! I attended with my children aged 6 and 10, and they regularly mention The Chocolatarium as the highlight of our holiday in Edinburgh. Our host Augusta was great - super friendly and knowledgeable. The session is really interactive - we were given hot chocolate to drink on arrival, made our own chocolate (choose from a range of different moulds and flavours) and tasted lots of different chocolates from around the world. There's also a little shop on-site, where we brought presents for friends and family. If you're thinking of booking this activity - do it!
