Excellent tour. Took the tour from Santo Domingo. It was a lovely 2 hour drive through the heart of the country. Once we arrived we were treated to a cup of hot chocolate and friendly staff. They were very accommodating and family friendly. We got to see all the processes of the chocolate industry from the cacao plant to the chocolate bar. Had a lovely lunch on the plantation. Definitely would recommend this tour. The chocolate is also great and a good gift to bring home.
