The name makes you think this is a big plantation or even a group of plantations which could be explored in several hours. Actually it is simply 1 small plantation which you can see within a few minutes. The presentation by the owner is interesting...More

Very interesting explanations about the whole process of cultivating and preparing vanilla as well as about what makes Taha'a vanilla so special. The owners greet visitors very warmly. It was the best part of our visit to Taha'a main island.

Initially, I was hesitant to do this tour, I thought I may be bored. I was wrong though. This is a family run farm, and everyone we encountered was friendly and knowledgeable. The first part of the tour was an introduction to what they do...More
