    It was a really great experience. Fraser, our chocolate expert, knows a lot and he was able to give us a lot of knowledge about chocolate. We also got to try a wide selection of different chocolates, which is a great part of the tour. We also tried making our own chocolate bars which is really fun to do.

    Bought this experience for my partner for his birthday. He loved it! Had a great afternoon exploring different types of dark, milk and white chocolates with different textures and flavouring. You also have the opportunity to make your own chocolates using their various different chocolate moulds. Great gift to give to a chocolate lover.
