Elio was energetic and knowledgable about the whole chocolate manufacturing process. He guided us through all the steps that he and his partner Patricia performed in front of us with everything to touch and taste and in some steps to participate. I was alone but suitable for children from about 5.

We love the tour! Especially for those with children it seems to be a lot of fun! Guide Angélica was super polite, funny and computer friendly. We learned a lot! We saw all the stages of the chocolate making process and were able to eat as much as we wanted at the end! We love!!

Such an incredible experience to learn how chocolate is made, and to taste the amazing chocolate was the highlight of our trip!!!

Just awesome! Can be recommended to everyone, the staff is passionate about it.

An exciting journey into the world of cocoa and chocolate. An absolute must!
