    It was a rainy day but still got to enjoy my time. I liked harvesting green tea leaves and learning how to dry and prepare it. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and provided a lot of information on Buddha statue, Chinese history, and took me to the beautiful mountain where they planted and harvested tea. He showed me how to pick young green tea leaves and then went to a farmers house to prepare it. I enjoyed everything except the old town we went to, I didn't like it as not much to see and was very dirty and chaotic.

    I had a great and rewarding experience. This full-day tour combines tourism with life experience. Starts with a boat tour to Buda; then a visit to an old town where time seems to have stopped. Had the opportunity to interact with locals in tea places; local food areas and more. Fascinating. In the afternoon I went to a tea field to pick up tea leaves and then to a house to visit an old couple who taught me how to prepare tea. We enjoyed drinking tea together. A special thanks to EVAN my guide and now friend. He is professional and at the same time friendly. He is knowledgeable. He is well respected by people in the town and rural areas. Thanks very much Evan; I learned from you a lot and enjoyed your company.

    This tour was amazing. The tour guide spoke very good English and was very knowledgeable. The best part was going to tea plantation, learning about tea and drinking it. A very enjoyable day.
