This tour exceeded our expectations!
While there were good reviews to begin with (this is what influenced us to select this tour), we didn and #39;t realize it would be as good as it was. Every stop we made was full of charm. Our tour guide Kathy is amazing! Very knowledgeable and courteous!

Loved the tour, especially the Chocolate Bar. We plan on returning in January and I know our kids will want to take the tour. Those of us who went this time may decide to meetup at the Chocolate Bar. LOL
