  • The tour begins with the garden with fun games on the topic of the cocoa, then a sweet lady tells the story of the cocoa while letting us taste its preparations. Each story, a tasting. Then finally, we have the opportunity to purchase products. Excellent tasting. We had a nice time. We highly recommend. Affordable price, € 7 per person.

  • Small Museum of cocoa with small issues on the course to find out the history of cocoa, with a beautiful explanation of one of the people of the place, which makes us taste the cocoa in several forms and everyone can understand whence the chocolate :)

  • Back to Pointe Noire, we discover this place that we had no plans to visit. Well we took. For € 7 per people, we move in a garden luxuriant, rich of variety to the fleshy pods, with a fun course. Half an hour of presentation, tastings, explanations in small group and we spin, 2 tablets (90% and choco-coffee) bought for a reasonable price. To do if you're in the area!

  • Interresting info about cacao and how they made chocholate. It's possible to get the info in english, but they mainly speak french in the tasting and when telling about the process, with a short recap in english. But really good flavors!
  • Great tour. Guides speak english
  • We start with a very playful garden for kids but also adults, then move to the most important step: the tasting! The explanations are clear to understand the manufacturing steps. Entrance €7 per adult and € 3 per child.

  • A small garden to start slowly... and then a workshop with a true enthusiast who tells us about the history and the transformation of cocoa. A must for foodies and curious (very surprising use of cocoa butter)

  • On the way to the airport we went here but luckily. It paid off in any case. We randomly got a private tour of a very nice person. It was a wonderful experience overall.
