Great fun for the kids (3&7) plenty of chocolate samples. The egg decoration at the end of the tour was great fun. I would have liked a bit more info on how they process the raw cocoa beans and actually create the raw chocolate. Still a great 1-2 fun for the kids and interesting tour.

My husband & i visited Butlers with our 3 sons aged 7, 2 & 9mths along with my mum who uses a walking stick. The staff were very helpful & the tour was just the right amount of time & information to suit us all. The choc decorating was so much fun & again staff were excellent. Would highly recommend.
