We took the bus up which only runs every two hours. We got there and paid the entrance fee of SCR25 per person for the tour. The lady then gave us back half the money as she said part of the plant was closed. There was no tour. We just wandered through the site. There were no signs or descriptions... More

IT was nice to visit this location. They have spectacular views from the top of the mountain, however their paid tour (which was inexpensive) was nothing fancy. We paid the fees, roamed around and left. No explanation and not very special. However, Worth a visit especially with kids to show them and explain to them yourself.

This was a rubbish experience - think we spent all of 2 minutes there. They werent offering a tour when we were there, however being of positive minds we were still interested in sampling the tea and making some holiday purchases... only to be told they dont let you sample the tea and so you may as well buy it...

If I could retire anywhere and have a nice little job to keep me busy, it would be to work as a tour guide at this quaint tea factory on this hilltop overlooking the gorgeous Seychelles coastline. We went on a non-production day, but still got to see the inner workings of the factory from start (drying) to finish (packaging).... More

Okay, my review is based on without the guided tour. So we were on our on. The entrance fee was 25 rupees (<-2€) for two person, so basically free. And if you want the tour its 25rupees per person. We didn't take the tour because we visited in afternoon and the tour would be shorter than in mornings (In mornings... More

The tea plantation is great... the drive is via jungle ... the most impressive ... so impressive was the variety of the tress , birds and the density of the tree along side the road...

This place is nothing extraordinary. It was a simple stoppage during the tour and we have many like these in India esp when you are traveling in the hills. I assure you we have even better stuff liek Tapri etc here. The factory has a small cafe which is very rustic and seems to come from the olden era. We... More

Altogether I agree with the previous evaluator. Fee 25 SCR (cca 1 Ł) is not overpriced but sometimes there is no one at reception and your tour is free of charge (and without interpretation). Tea tavern is fine.

This may have been different if we had done a tour. If you don't it's a nice place to stop and have a cup of tea! There is a small cafe and a shelf of tea you can buy. We had vanilla and citronella or lemongrass tea. Both were good. If you are passing its definayely worth stopping off for... More
