I took my 10 year old daughter and her 13 year old friend to this 2 hour workshop. We started with a short lecture including pictures about the cacao tree, where it grows in Peru and how the beans are harvested and processed. It was fun for us to learn how we could make a chocolate bar straight from the cacao bean. We were able to choose dark, white or milk chocolate to work with. We also made delicious chocolate drinks: the matador and the conquistador. The instructor was a young guy from Cusco who was very pleasant and helpful. We each made 2 chocolate bars and took them back to the hotel to eat. If you love chocolate this is a delicious and educational experience.

My husband and I really enjoyed this class. Enrique was our teacher- he was an awesome teacher! Learned and laughed a lot.
We loved this chocolate class! Our teacher, the staff, and our classmates were all very friendly. You get to pick between making milk or dark chocolate for your items to take home, plus you make some drinks to taste in the class. Everything was ready for us including aprons to protect our clothes, so you won't need to bring anything. I highly recommend this class to anyone who likes chocolate.
What a great time! Our tour leader was knowledgeable and a fabulous photographer-I had some great shots when I got home! The chocolate was delicious.

This was a great activity for my first free afternoon in Lima. The staff was really friendly and knowledgeable about the chocolate process, and made it fun for everyone. Our small class size only 5 people made it easy to interact with the instructor and each other, for a more personal experience. I had no idea that grinding the beans into a paste would take so much work! : We made two drinks to try as a group, and then each person got to use molds to make their very own take-home chocolate either milk or dark chocolate with a wide variety of toppings. Definitely recommended if you're looking for something other than a general walking tour of Lima.
This was a very interesting activity and we thoroughly enjoyed it. You did get to learn a lot about chocolate and got to sample quite a lot of it too! A very friendly instructor and a fun activity if you have 3 hours to spare.
Questionable hygiene practice and over-crowed group did not allow this otherwise very educational experience to fully be enjoyable.
