Loved the experience! 5 out of 5 stars

Came here with my family over the Easter Holidays. I learned so much about chocolate! The tour was very informative and the guide was very animated which made it interesting for all ages. There were plenty of samples throughout the tour. They accommodated for those with special diet care as well. There was a lot of people which made it hard to hear but that's understandable since it was the holidays. Making our own chocolate lollies was the best! It was a great day out. Takes about 2 hours to go through.


Great chocolatey afternoon 5 out of 5 stars

Great time had by all at York's Chocolate Story. Guided tour was by a great young man who brought out loads of interesting facts about the history of chocolate making in York. We got to try various chocolates as part of the tour and especially loved making chocolate lollies.
