We were shown around the plantation by an informative guide, served tea and cake at the homestead which was relaxing, then shown through the tea factory and to the gift shop at the end where you could try all sorts of teas. The whole thing...More
Really wanted to visit a tea plantation not too far from Bentota. Far exceeded my expectations. The people were so kind, patient, informative - and not obviously interested in your money, so unlike the culture I am used to. The guide showed us through the...More
I didn’t initially expect to enjoy this visit to the tea plantation and joined my family to check it out.
We started off on a free tour around the tea plantations where we could see the locals picking the tea. The tour guide was informative,...More
It is a free tour although you have the option to leave a small token in the tea tasting room. It is a very pleasant stroll to the tea house, where along the way they also show you collecting sap from rubber trees. The view...More
On a private Tuk-Tuk tour our driver took us to the Handunugoda Tea Estate. The tour guide was very informative and showed us around the estate showing us the various plants, and how they make tea.

We had a very knowledgeable guide who explained all about the different types of tea and we had a slice of chocolate cake and cup of Saphire Pekoe on the owners verandah before going to the factory and then tasting all 50 varieties of tea...More
I was interested to read the comments in these pages from the Poor and Average contributors.They may have a point. It seemed to be a long way to go for little reward. On arrival a quick walk up the hill for a cup of tea...More
I’ve been to a number of tea estates as a child during visits to Sri Lanka and assumes they were all in the hill country in the centre of the island; so I was very surprised to find the Handunugoda Tea Estate near Galle. Upon...More
We were staying in Galle and took a taxi which took about 40 minutes. Xavier led our tour and was very knowledgeable about all aspects of the plantation. We had a few different nationalities in our group and Xavier was able to communicate with all...More
Like I said you should be flexible when you know that visitors are coming. The traffic conditions are tough now and your staff should not keep calling and saying that they have to go off so please make it before 4:30. That... More
Like I said you should be flexible when you know that visitors are coming. The traffic conditions are tough now and your staff should not keep calling and saying that they have to go off so please make it before 4:30. That was so dissapointing, at least with a greeting on arrival and a small explanation that its too late for a tour of the estate would be nice, then they could at least show the guest a brief tour of the productuon area and bungalore will be a memorable one isnt it. Its all about being service oriented and caring that makes you top of your game. We as guides see the good and the bad of services around Sri Lanka, and just hope that Sri Lanka brings back that always smiling people service back that we are seeming to loose slowly and surely.
No worries will try once again to visit your estate with other clients again. Thanks for your feed back and Good luck for the future. My regards, Tony.
