Hello and thank you for a great day tour. Jan was fantastic. Friendly, knowledgeable and easygoing.
We were very fortunate to have a wonderful group on tour. We all gelled and had a fun day. The conversation wasn’t lacking and plenty of laughter.
Would recommend the day. Ginger factory tour was informative. The rainforest walk beautiful.
Unfortunately, the weather was horrid and no views, but that’s out of the control of everyone.
Just a shame you don’t offer another day, but understand it all comes down to costs.
The Barn was an excellent venue. Food scrumptious!
We were especially impressed and appreciative of the exceptional service provided by Dave the Private Ginger Factory, Rainforest, views, Montville tour. Not only was he very friendly, professional & informative but he also went above and beyond to ensure our comfort and ease of mobility for my parents by placing down the step outside the vehicle at every stop, dropping us at the top of the hill in Montville and collect us at the bottom and parking as close as possible at each stop to reduce the amount of walking required.
Thank you for providing some wonderful memorable days.
We thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Geoff was a great host and very knowledgeable. The weather wasn’t great but we still got to do everything as planned.
Food was tasty , Chicken Sausage , Juice , everything was tasty. View was awesome.
This is one of the most famous in Montville, With beautiful views
