Fun tour with lots of chocolate to taste! Our tour guide was also lovely and very knowledgeable.
The class was small and intimate, allowing for a real sense of being able to get hands-on experience in our first experience making chocolate. Our guide was knowledgeable and comfortable, making the lesson feel conversational rather than instructional. I really feel I learned enough to try and make chocolate myself at home, but with the self-awareness that as a novice mine will not taste as wonderful as Raaka’s chocolate! I also really enjoyed the whole team: everyone was nice and engaging while they were busy. Raaka is truly some of the most delicious chocolate I have ever had (try the limited edition sage flavor!) and it was great to learn from them on this quick trip to NYC.
Had a great time. Was interesting seeing how chocolate is actually made
Anne was so sweet ! Learnt a lot and enjoyed chocolate!
I received this tour as a gift and it was incredible! You learn so much in the walk-around factory tour and get to do some fun taste-testing along the way. Creating our own three bars was definitely the highlight! Will keep an eye out for their chocolate in stores :)
Great session and great chocolate. Definitely something cool to do with friends or as a date. Love the product!
Really fast but fun tour of Raaka Chocolate Factory. Staff were friendly, proud of their business. Chocolate is amazing.
Informative and yummy!
The overall experience of touring and tasting chocolate was amazing. A very interactive and informal tour that basically taught my group that theres a lot that goes into making chocolate nevertheless selling it simultaneously. It was a great community building activity and I recommend it to everyone. Plus the staff is so kind and welcoming.
It was tasty and fun! Would definitely do it again!
