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!
The cruise was lovely. The bus driver was friendly and courteous. The Cadbury tour is not really a tour but a talk about chocolate as tours are not permitted through the factory anymore. However, the half price chocolate shop was great!!!
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.
