It was Ok

I wouldnt go back again, but it was a nice drive through the back roads finding the place, always good to see how the locals live.

It is always a pleasure to go to the perfume factory. They have the most amazing smells which they put into oils, soaps and lotions. This is a must when visiting raro.

There was no visible tours or information re the factory and there was no information available to take home for the gifts. The items were lovely and fragrant and high quality with reasonable prices however we would not have visited there again.

This gift shop near the airport has a wide variety of fragrant gifts for yourself or to take home. The prices were reasonable. The staff make many of their own products so are helpful and knowledgeable.

Well that is what it is for, there is no indication of being able to see the factory or it's workings, just a shop selling product. Which was nice enough and the young lady was very helpful and guided us re taking stuff back to NZ and what to declare etc. But there was no offer of telling us about... More

this is a lovely place to visit. They have some wonderful things to buy and at very good prices. The lady was so lovely and helpful. She saw my fan was broken so she offered to fix it and glue the shells back down. We bought most of our gifts for family and friends from there as was lovely.
