Was on our map so we called in to have a look on our journey exploring Mahe by car. Eventually somebody saw us snooping about and told us where we would find the guide, we found her but she seemed to have been sniffing the tea bags as she was slumped over her desk and told us to go away... More

25 rupees for an unguided entry for 2 persons. There was one room with some photos and a couple of boxes on tea on display and that's it. All other activities were out of bounds (basically several people sat putting leaves into boxes anyway). The 9/10th of the factory was unused, empty dirty rooms with broken down machinery. Tried to... More

On arrival there was a staff member who would not acknowledge us and when we asked questions she muttered in monosyllables. was so unhelpful and unfriendly - We did not feel welcome so we left. Such a shame - a smile and greeting goes a long way in any language.

Worth the visit whilst you are in the Seychelles. Remember to take cash on this visit as they do not take debit / credit cards. The tea's are lovely.

The location & view from the tea factory is stunning. When we reached there, it was a sunny day, due to which the view from factory was awesome.

If you really want to visit this attraction, do so quickly. The whole place gave the feel it could be closing any minute. The cafe has been abandoned for some time, there appeared to be no processing of tea, just packaging; very sad state of affairs.

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.
