An amazing experience and a must-see

On our tour through the ricefields we saw two different segments of the fields, both as beautiful as one expects. Despite the rainy day, Andy, our guide, managed to keep the tour entertaining. We had enough time to see the area and let it’s beauty sink in. I definitely keep this tour recommended. Besides the lovely area, Andy arranged several things for us and adapted the schedule to our preferences, whithout trouble.

sehr schöne Tagestour

der Fahrer war sehr nett und konnte gut Englisch. bei den Reisterrassen angekommen, wäre eine "Wanderung" von ca. 30-40 Minuten vorgesehen (dies steht leider nirgends). wenn man diese nicht bewältigen kann, kann man dies dem Fahrer sagen und man kann gegen eine kleine Gebühr mit einem Wagen rauf fahren. wir waren noch im einem kleinen Einheimischen Lokal essen und auf dem Nachhauseweg noch in einer Teeplantage, was auch sehr zu empfehlen ist.
