    Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and explained the chocolate making process brilliantly however he was only armed with some laminated photos and jars of the ingredients. I was expecting an actual tour but we sat at a large table and listened. The chocolate tasting was fun and the truffles are amazing- apple & cinnamon is probably the best I’ve ever eaten. Just thought it might be a bit more interactive.
