Nothing to see in the factory but it's a great area for photos and to have a smoke and continue to where you will go it's just a pass by place

We had a great time with the tea factory due to our driver knowledge on things. The employees were on lunch break so could not take a paid tour but our drive gave us a tour.

When we visited the tea factory, I thought we would be treated to a guided tour that explains the process and have us experience the life cycle of the tea tree. Unfortunately, we arrived only to be pay the entrance fee and tour a non- operating factory. Probably they did not have a production batch going, be we should have... More

We've visited the tea factory during our stay in Seychelles. Our guide told us very interesting things about the place and the tea plantation. The factory is located very high in the island, but the view from there is breathtaking.

It was dull and overcast up in the hills when we visited so photo opportunities of the coast views were limited. Interesting tour which was very short as the tea production process does not take too long to explain. Entry cost was only $2 per person so didn't break the bank. Various type of tea can of course be purchased... More

We went and there was no tour and despite a notice saying no entry without a tour guide we were ushered through to look for ourselves. We felt a bit voyeuristic and uncomfortable staring at people at work packing teabags. The rest is a museum of old machines used for making tea. We did not see anywhere where we could... More

it's very nice place, nice view. But I think the presentation was only about 2-5 minutes and it was not too much. They don't have a lot for view. But if you have way around you have to see it. I saw first time machines for sorting tea and also how they pack the tea

Visit if you like tea and are interested in knowing about processing of tea. There is a guided tour costing just SCR 25 (USD 2) per head, where the guide will give you complete details of various stages of processing of tea, starting from tea leaves to packaged tea. You get to see the machinery and finally you end up... More

Very good view. It is a little bit interesting. Nice to walk around with children. It is a place to visit for 30- 40 minutes maximum.

It's worth a stop on the trip if you rented a car for the day. It has a couple of great views of the other side of the island and the tea is very inexpensive and makes a great gift from the islands!
