Would highly recommend doing the chocolate making class as it is very fun and educational, with lots of chocolate tasting! Also, Kenny our guide was fantastic - very passionate and knowledgable!

I booked a course to make my own chocolate and was looking forward to learn all about the process and history of it. Instead I was thrown back to kindergarten. The staff was friendly but the way they tried to teach us something was just nonsense as was the information they provided on chocolate. NO Content - MUCH Business.

I visited the Choco Museo with my wife, son and sister-in-law and we did the beans-to-bar workshop. It went from describing the cocoa tree, harvesting, roasting and chocolate making process. The museum was in a central location on Granada and was linked to a hotel in Granada. The tour itself was very fun and kid-friendly! Ours was led by Kenny,... More

Ismael is hilarious. You will not stop smiling with this extremely informative, hands-on tour. Well worth the money! Try three chocolate drinks from history (that you make) and then take home a self-made chocolate bar (we're talking full-size chocolate bar... not that little fun size)

Yes, the museum shows - and guides tell all that in a friendly but frantic way - but is primarily a commercial enterprise and shop/restaurant. Very interesting however, but the rushed atmosphere made the sampling of a dozen or so offered small shots of chocolate liquor (potent) drinks at the end of the paid tour many tourists a bit tipsy,...

I'm a chocoholic, so naturally I was excited to visit. So there are a few facts posted on the walls about the origin of chocolate and how to make it. That's it. The there was a store. One could buy lots of chocolate items. Other than the brownies, nothing tasted good. Chocolate seemed stale and not well made. I bought... More

We did the workshop where you learn about the chocolate making process. Alejandro was our cook and he explained everything really wel, he was very enthousiastic and made it an interactive workshop. At the end we did a little quiz to see if we had paid enough attention and you can keep your own chocolate bar! It was a nice... More
