Great to look round the museum and small factory - also to taste some of their wares and see how some of the moulded chocolate items are made. Made all the better by 'YourGuide' selling the tickets cheaper than at the venue. I could order the tickets in their reception area and immediately get in cheaper :)

It ran smoothly from start to finish. it was a really good experience. We had a laugh and learnt a lot in the process. The group size was just right and the person giving us the tour was friendly and knowledgeable. Even for people who know a bit about Cologne and the history it is worth experiencing.

Hello, it was an all-round success. Were about a 14 - ner troupe. Marcus has the troops entertaining with info. supplied and the 2 hours were interesting and the stop in a brewery for a Kölsch should not be missed.

we had a very nice young man Marcas ! He was very helpful, polite, friendly, the knowledge of the city was amazing. Would definitely recommend this .

It was really cool to walk around and see chocolate being made! The staff were friendly and there’s lots of opportunities to get some chocolate!
