This was a wonderful experience! I love chocolate so much and had learned a bit about the process already, but this experience was still illuminating, interesting and so much fun. The chocolate was so tasty and the hosts were very knowledgeable, professional and kind. Highly recommend!

Lucia and Mauricio were great!!! I loved this experience. Learning about the history of chocolate, and experiencing the process of making chocolate bars was phenomenal. Me and my boyfriend enjoyed every bit and are slowly savoring the chocolate we made throughout the rest of our trip. I absolutely recommend this 100%.
