First off, this is imported Belgium chocolate that they melt and put their own fillings in (felt a bit cheated on that front!). Our tour started 30 minutes late and presented very basic information on chocolate. So many better things to do with your time, maybe young kids would enjoy it as the guide personality was funny, but overall not... More

After visiting Bebe's chocolatier in Stellenbosch a few hours earlier, I was dissapointed with the service, choices and variety available. There was nothing that stood out and was unique. It is very close to visiting Geldhof in In Sandton.

Jermaine did our tasting for us and it was excellent! He was so entertaining and friendly. The chocolate was amazing and demonstration just as good. Will definitely be back!

We went to the demonstration at 1500. It's really information and the chocolate was very tasty. This guy is so funny and he introduced the history of chocolate which is not boring. You will be amazed by his skills of making chocolate.

We always pop in when we visit Franschoek. This time we visited the shop only and bought some loose chocs for ourselves for the road. They have so much variety which is an extra bonus. The lady who assisted us advised that you may also order online and they deliver almost everywhere. A real gem in the heart of Franschoek.... More

I didn't like dark chocolate before tasting their dark chocolate! I liked it so much I took some back to Texas! Learning about the chocolate process was entertaining and interesting. Was a fun activity with my 9 and 12 yr old boys in this quaint winery town just outside of Cape Town.

My daughter nailed it, when, hours after the tour she said, that man who led the chocolate tour has groovy moves. His name is Jermaine, and he was entertaining, even if the spiel was canned and rehearsed. I would have been far more impressed with the place if it featured fair trade chocolate and spoke more of the ethics in... More

Had a private show as we were the only two. Very interesting talk and demonstration on how the chocolates are made on the premises- all hand made. Could sample as much as we wanted (pity we had just been to lunch) and got a small sample to take away. Interesting to see why their chocolate is different to others because... More

We loved the individual chocolates. We bought a 100g bag our first day. We came back on our third day for another bag - they're delicious! Favourites were the vanilla truffle and the strawberry chocolate.
