    Wonderful guided experience to explain the cacao to chocolate journey. Nick was funny and informative, which is a great balance. This tour works great in any weather so don’t sweat it if things are rainy. Go and enjoy it, especially the chocolate tasting at the end!

    The tour was a lot of fun and VERY informative. I never knew how chocolate was processed or what type of plant it came from so it was a great learning experience. Our tour guide was very helpful and knowledgeable. I highly recommend this tour.

    We had a wonderful time on the farm. Loved to see the chocolate making process and loved the samples even more. Everyone was wonderful. The only down side was that we spent a bit too much in the shop.
