Enjoyable and well organised tour. We walked through the plantions and to various stunning viewpoints. The tea factory tour was fantastic and it was great to learn about and try all the teas. Tour guides were very friendly and informative.
We unfortunately only had one full day in beautiful Munnar but we are so glad we chose to go on the Tea Trail Tour. This tour combined a trek through the breathtaking landscape of the tea plantations and a visit to a local tea factory. We got to truly appreciate the landscape in which the tea grows then learnt how it was made and even had an education in tasting the different types! Both of our guides were knowledgeable and friendly, and the driver was also very nice. I would strongly recommend this tour if you want to immerse yourself in beautiful Munnar.
We had a very nice time during our tour. The scenery was stunning and the tour of the factory was very interesting. So far, my time in India has been spent mostly in a car and it was nice to have a peaceful walk in the fresh air. Our guide, Amanju, was very friendly and knowledgeable and she kindly picked us various berries to eat during the tour.
it was great experience with family , when u take hotel try to be there around this is only place in munnar whiuch nevar be find in other place

The tour was really nice with beautiful scenery. Mr mutter explained very well the facts about the tea farms and other plants growing there. He also told us some funfacts and insights from the tea farming work. 100% recommended!
