My friend and I had an incredible day doing the shared farm tour. It's a great way to see parts of the country/culture that you wouldn't get to otherwise, and the guides go above and beyond with their hospitality. Everything is taken care of for you, you get to meet some local

We appreciate so much your kind words. Glad you immediately grabbed our concept and the importance of positive-impact / sustainable tourism! The farmers and artisans within our network benefit from such tours, and without them, we would not be able to taste and enjoy so many delectable items and exclusive venues! So it's a win-win. Thanks again!
