This might look disappointing at first site - a wander round a few cacao trees, but then it all changes. A talk on the history and method of chocolate making with lots to taste (not all nice!). The talks are alternatively in French and English....More

The people who work at La Maison du Cacao made this a great experience -- knowledgable, friendly, and interesting. There were two different tasting stations for a variety of chocolates and both guides had good English-speaking skills, so that was a big plus for us....More
