Staff were very friendly. A nice hidden local factory bean to bar in OC. I love that you do get to sample the different stages of chocolate from fruit to actual product. In addition, you get 3 truffles to pick from and a choc bar. Worth it! However, being someone who loves chocolate and have done a similar experience in another state, there are some area they can definitely improve on to maximize the tasting experience especially for folks who don't know much about chocolate. For ex: when tasting the solidify choc, how to properly taste it. Just like tasting beer, wine, and coffee, there's a proper way to taste choc. Teaching guests how to would add value to the experience. They offer 2 melted choc shots from the fountain, but the taste is not also the same once it becomes solids. It is less sweet or more bitter depending, so if they offer two melted samples, offer two solid samples so customers can tell the difference. Also they make milk choc, a sample for those who don't know much about their choc, can taste it. Then it'll help when they get to choose their bar and truffles but also if they want to buy more. I usually don't like milk choc, but had bought some in a bag, came home had some and it was delicious. Silky and smooth and not too sweet. Would have bought more if I knew. But I guess that's how they'll get you to come back. :-)

I bought this tour but I did not know that was not recommended for kids. They were flexible and change the tour for a kids tour, which is more cheaper, so they gave us extra chocolates. I will be great if you actually see when they are producing the chocolate. We were unable to see the actual process of the chocolate because the employees were on vacation.
