We went with the idea of having lunch first and then visiting the chocolate factory. Sadly you were not able to enter the cafe without purchasing a ticket of 95,000 for each of us, including our 4 year old twins. We asked what the ticket...More

Be clear on one thing: The $10 entry fee only gets you (1) parking and (2) a shotglass of chocolate drink. You have to pay extra for everything else - at an extravagant price. At the prices they charge, you'd hope that the elephants they...More

For the price of entrance you have only a cup of chocolate. You have to pay more if you want a tour, which is also a joke in itself. Small, tiny and trying to get money on tourists credulity. Pls avoid this place !

You are able to purchase tickets without reservation. Keep in mind that you will need to pay for entry to the reserve area where the factory is located. You pay at the gate but you are able to deduct money for the tour... More
