We’ve visited plenty of chocolate tours in our travels, but I think this is one of the better ones. The tour starts with a visiting various rooms to learn about the history of chocolate. Whilst I’ve seen plenty of tours which explain how chocolate is made, this is the first I’ve seen with the history of chocolate. I had no idea that it was once upon a time banned! Of course there is the standard information about how chocolate is made, with an emphasis on how it’s made at Cailler of course. Another difference I enjoyed was the room where you could touch, smell and taste the various ingredients that make up chocolate. There’s a short section where you can see chocolate being made which is always fun too. But of course the best part is the room where you can eat and unlimited amount of Cailler chocolate, yes that’s right unlimited! There’s around 10-15 different chocolates on offer and there’s absolute no limit on how much you can eat. You just can’t take it out the room. Needless to say we left that room full of chocolate. For those visiting with kids, there’s a great playground outside for little ones too.
Really enjoyed my visit here. Interesting tour and nice tasting session. The store has a great selection. I like Cailler chocolate. You can see the chocolate being made. I’ve been here several times. Nice thermal baths nearby. It’s a cool place even if you think candy is stupid.
Very well designed tour with interesting history of the chocolate industry, informative guide to how the key ingredients of Cailler chocolate originate on farms and become their product. Visitors are drawn into the process as guest tasters and taught to use all their senses to experience chocolate as a fine culinary delicacy akin to wine or cheese. A delicious sampling of chocolates awaits you!
Loved it! Very interactive tour and the best part, tasting many different chocolate samples from the Cailler portfolio. To finish, a delicious hot chocolate! Definitely recommend it!!
Excellent experience. The journey of chocolate through time is very well done. Highly recommended.
