Beautiful views. Self guided tour was very short. Tea and other spices available to purchase. I would recommend visiting based on the views alone.

It is good to go there and see how the seychelles tea is produced. It is a small manufactory. You can go through the factory free of charge or pay some fee and the guide will go with you. These is also a small shop were you can buy all their products.
