Had a terrific day. Our coach driver was absolutely fantastic. He gave a running commentary all the way out to the factory which was valuable for us as we hadn't seen much of Hobart. Once we were at Cadbury the tour included a good run down of the making of chocolate and plenty of time to buy things at really good prices. Half a day well spent.
The Cadbury staff guide were friendly and informative. I loved it from the first whiff of chocolate as only a chocoholic could.
It was a very fun and informative day. The people were extremely friendly and professional and we had a few laughs along the way, not to mention the chocolate we ate and bought. Well done.
I would love to do it all again. It is fascinating to see how the products I love are made. I went mad in the chocolate shop too. Yum! We had a comfortable trip out in the bus and the cruise back was great. The delicious light lunch was just right. A great way to spend a morning!
I didn't go on the trip but my friend did and as someone with a mobility issue she found she was well cared for, not rushed and the information provided well presented and interesting.
Unfortunately our tour started badly, the bus waited over half an hour for guests who never arrived cutting our time at the chocolate factory very short. The bus commentary and factory presentation were very good, but there was no time for a coffee in the cafeteria. The returning ferry was quick, with no commentary and the access down to the ferry landing from MONA does not cater for wheelchairs.
The tour was very interesting and they gave you as many samples as you wanted. You could buy a carton of mixed seconds for $12 which is really cheap, only trouble is if your flying the weight of your luggage. If you really are a chocoholic try the hot chocolate !!!!!
It was very easy to book the tour online. I discovered I made a mistake with the date but, this was easily solved without any fuss.
This was actually a combination of two smaller tour activities. Pick-ups, transfers and direction between activities was smooth and organised, so that the whole morning was very enjoyable, without being rushed for time.
The trip was organised and as promised. Just curious why Cadbury charges to tour when there is no tour but a movie and display. After all a lot of money is being earned by their off sales.
This was a great tour by bus and river cruise, and all questions were answered. They both had lots of knowledge of Hobart. It was a bit disappointing that at Cadburys we weren't able to walk through the Factory while they were making chocolate. However, apparently they are looking at reopening it so that we can walk through the factory again when safety measures have been implemented. When this happens I will definitely rebook. The bus tour guide very friendly and helpful, and the cruise staff were very friendly also.
