I have always loved chocolate, so I knew this trip was for me. What stood out was visiting the small chocolate boutiques to taste their signature pieces. The fillings were so creative and the chocolate sublime. Meeting the individual chocolatiers added so much to the experience. There was just the right balance of food, history, scenery, culture, and chocolate. This trip is a chocolate lover’s dream. - G.E. - California
