My grandma, mom, and myself all really enjoyed this tour. The chocolate tasting was amazing and I would recommend getting the hot chocolate at the cafe - it’s delicious! The cheese factory was a little disappointing as we didn’t get to really see any cheese being made. Overall it was a great time and our tour guide Babis was very friendly!
