    What can we say. It was a roller coaster of emotion. The highs , the lows, (dramatic effect only- there were no lows)… every second was absolute pure joy. SP melted our cold cold London based hearts. Her effervescence and poise made the whole thing all the more magical. We are better people for it. We know more, we are more. We are chocolate. Do it.

    Fraser was great during the chocolate tour. He is very enthusiastic as chocolate and where it comes from. He was able to impart so much knowledge into the time in an interesting and informative way. We really enjoyed making our own chocolate and cone away with a great memory. This is highly recommended for families, couples, singles and groups.
