Waterfall was amazing as there was heavy rain at night, rise fields were just harvested so looked miserable. There was also a visit to coffee farm which I liked and a restaurant with a view which I liked even more. While every attraction was really nice I didn’t have anything “wow” that’s why 4 stars. Maybe taking part in temple ceremony would have given me some spiritual experience. Driver was very helpful.

This was a nice experience. My cousin chose this tour and I was expecting bit to enjoy it but I did. It wasn’t the nicest day out, kind of gloomy and very hot, but nonetheless I thought the sights were nice. The tour said it was 8 hours, however it probably ended up being half that time (which honestly I enjoyed because I was very tired by the end of it).

Great!

This tour was great! Our guide, Bisma, was lovely - he was very punctual and couldn’t do enough to make sure we had a fantastic day. We wanted to find out more about the rice fields so he came with us and showed us the rice in its different stages, taking the time to explain it all to us. The waterfall was great, loved the temples, and had lunch in a really relaxing setting. We felt like we spent the right amount of time in each place. Thanks Bisma for a wonderful tour!
