Enjoyed the 30min walk around and learn about the ports then 30mins to taste - a good timeframe. Also enjoyed the chocolate pairing!


Sep, 2023
I received an email from you well before the tour, and I replied within a day, but I didn't receive any response from you until the day of the tour. In the end, I was able to participate in the tour one hour later than my scheduled time. It was really the worst experience.
