Overview

Join me for an afternoon rich in cacao and chocolate. Ecuadorian cacao beans are considered the best in the world, and with good reason. Professional tasters often claim that the aroma of Ecuador´s cacao is more complex, with strong floral and fruits characteristics. On this tour, we will visit some of my favorite chocolate shops, specialized in the traditional production of this famous local treat, and enjoy an interactive, educational tasting. I will also show you around my city, give you insight into Ecuadorian culture and introduce you to other local foods.
