Great mixture of chocolate creations and a history lesson. Our guide, Keilor, was very knowledgeable and entertaining. He added some extras with cinnamon and pepper samples. The melted cocoa with additives was divine. Fabulous experience and highly recommended.

Fun activity to do. Unlimited chocolate with an asterisk. I think it's a little overpriced.
