    Well worth a visit. Really enjoyed the tour. So much chocolate tasting. Fraser was funny. Made me laugh a few times and understands the consequences of leveing a room full of chocoholics with chocolate in. He kept everyone involved and great with the kids. All age groups recommended to do this. Dont forget to get something from the shop at the end.

    This was our final activity that we did in Edinburgh and it was the perfect thing! It was lowkey but still so enjoyable to learn about chocolate and how it’s made. The Chocolatarium was following COVID protocols, and they offered vegan alternatives to people that needed it. The chocolate selection they had too was amazing- if I ever go back to Edinburgh, I definitely want to go here!
