Very interesting tour.
We loved this very informative private tour. We'll presented and the chocolate making process was explained completely. We got to taste the chocolate that we saw being made... It was yummy... We all had our own spoon and a very nice lady would drizzle some onto our spoon then you could add what flavours you like. My fav was sea salt and chilli.
The Baldi hot springs part of the tour was slightly disappointing but only because we had been to the Tabacon hot springs before. There was a lot more walking involved at the Baldi and my husband has walking difficulties so not ideal. Tabacon hot springs are a classier place.
We were glad we chose the private tour.. It was more personable than being on a bus with 30 or so people. We could stop for a break when we wanted.... Coffee or bathroom... And our driver Gerado gave us lots of interesting information about Costa Rica. Overall this tour was excellent value for money and very enjoyable
