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
We took a short walk through a small grove of cacao trees. The demonstration had already begun by the time we reached the area. The guide spoke French which was fine, we could understand most of what she was saying by what she was doing....More

We spend so much more effort on beer/wine/distillery tours & tastings as a culture... this was...More
Garden is nice but the tasting is just so much fun! You get to taste everything from the bean fresh out of the pod to the various stages until the finished product, which makes you queue at the (expensive) shop!
