My nephew and niece, 2 friends went to your luncheon tour. They enjoyed it very much, especially the meal. They bought different gifts to take home, and said they would gladly go again

Very enjoyable. We learned a great deal about the commercial growing vanilla. The food was excellent as was the vanilla ice cream. We will certainly recommend this tour to our friends.

All three of us were impressed very favorably with the lecture and the tour. Lunch was tasty, but not enough time allowed to enjoy thoroughly. Teas were great!
