Very intimate and fascinating presentation of cocoa beans and their history. Lots of hands on activities during the tour. Yummy chocolate tastings and a good selection of finished bars for purchase in the gift shop!

Very exciting explained. Our guide did this in a very fun, entertaining way that just flew by. We learned a lot because we were able to experience the preparation step by step and also tasted it again and again

Muy interesante, los guías nos explicaron y constataron nuestras preguntas, nos encantó que el tour fuera interactivo. Definitivo una gran experiencia.

Super interesting experience with loads of chocolate! I would do it again in a heartbeat and it's really worth the price!

Exceptional traditional chocolate making and tasting experience.
