What a great place, the outside is beautiful, went during the day, but bet is pretty at night. The staff was great and so fun to see the chocolate being made.

Always enjoyable to visit during the Holidays. The christmas lights on the cacti are beautiful to wander through the paths and then visit the chocolate shop.

My wife loves when I go here because she know she is getting truffles and chocolates. Better than Godiva by far. You cannot go wrong here.

The cactus garden was cute—so many varieties. Nice relaxing stroll—not busy at all. The chocolate factory was ok—it was just a store in my opinion. Yes they have the factory going—however, for me they didn’t go into any factory tour or anything like that.. The...More

It’s about 20 minutes away depending on the time of day. I’d say it’s worth the trip if you are really into Seeing how chocolate foods come to life. As fas the Cactus garden, I haven’t had the pleasure of touring the grounds... More
