I would recommend this tour for slightly older kids, say third grade or so and up. There's a lot of information, especially good for those who love geography, and they don't "dumb" it down for the kids. They do get to taste all kinds of chocolate, and it's not all sweet, lol.

We loved it--it's a fabulous tour, and in a fun neighborhood in Seattle, Fremont. It's very close to the famous Troll and we walked to a nice soup and sandwich place after, right around the corner. Make a full day of it.

If you love chocolate than you have to check out Theo's. As your waiting to get started on the tour they have all sorts of samples to try. But be careful at the end of the tour I tried one that didn't suit my taste buds. They really have some exotic choices. Our group was large so they split us in two. One touring the factory first the other in a room decorated interestingly. They talked about the history of chocolate and the beans and all sorts. And passed around the beans to smell and taste. I would say if you have a squirmy child that this might not suit them. Lots of information. The tour of the factory was good. Its a very small factory so not a lot of space to move around as you have to stay behind the designated lines. It was neat seeing all the various machines they had and seeing the process of how they make their chocolate. We even got to try the chocolate they were making that day in the room where the people that make it by hand were. Overall a very good learning adventure. Oh, and they do have water to drink in the front room where they have all the samples so if you need to cleanse your palette. You can also just stop by there and buy chocolate. So be sure to bring extra money if you have kids that will want to buy a treat before leaving.
