Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Cadbury Chocolate Factory Tour and Derwent River Cruise from Hobart. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
Cadbury chocolate factory component was not a tour, it was a 15 minute description of how chocolate is made, the remaining 45 minutes could be spent purchasing chocolate from the shop or eating/drinking at the cafeteria.
The derwent river cruise was 30 minutes from MONA museum back to the Hobart starting point and included a small sandwich with a drink. Overall I was not satisfied with this tour and would not recommend it for your visit to Hobart.
I would not reccommend this tour to anyone I know.
What a let down. You no longer tour the factory. Save your money and buy some chocolate.
It is not a factory tour, only a visitor centre. And the river cruise with lunch and refreshment is a bread roll and a soft drink. There is no guarantee that you will make the river cruise as the river cruise will not wait if the drive from the chocolate factory is running late. It wil leave without you. Our chocolate tour got cut short in order to make the cruise.
The fire alarm went off before we sat in on the talk about the history of Cadbury Chocolate so we spent our limited time there on the lawns out front where staff tried to make light of the situation with free chocolates. The tour does not include even a viewing of the actual chocolate making process. I found the whole experience mundane and boring.
Was not what i had expected at all. I did the Cadbury tour many years ago which included a guided tour throughout the factory. This time we sat in a little room, was given a mini presentation, watched a DVD for 10-15 minutes and that was it. I would not have wasted my time by having to get up extra early to be on time to find we were just going to watch a DVD. It was raining on the cruise and couldn't see clearly out of the windows due to the fog and rain. Unfortunately, I felt it was a complete waste of time and money.
This tour was completely misleading and totally boring. There was no tour of the Cadbury factory. The Cruise was the ugliest scenery I could ever waist my time with. The lunch was pathetic. There was also no return transfer at the end of the day and had to walk for miles to catch a cab in freezing cold with 2 children.
