An unforgettable experience

A unique experience accompanied by an incredible guide (Charlie), super attentive and worried because we always understand everything with a smile. As for the experience, it is enriching to pick up with their tools and see how they prepare tea by hand and with their relevant utensils. Apart from the machines with which other types of tea are made. In short, a day well spent in Thailand and with a good tasting of tea accompanied with some snacks. KOPUNKA CHARLIE !!!!

Very professional, very friendly staff, multinational speakers

Araksa's staff are very professional. Mr. Charlie came to greet us at the entrance. He's very kind and helpful as we booked our activities around 10:30am. However, Araksa staff's inventories in the system were shown as 13:00pm. Luckily, Mr. Charlie was very helpful and let us to experience their tea garden activities without waiting for so long. Very good explanations and instructions. Also, leave us some times to enjoy our moments like taking vdo or pictures. The knowledge of staff was perfect and easy to understand. Almost everyone could speak English and most of them spoke English very well. Araksa's staff also could speak more languages like French, Chinese and other European languages as there are a lot of European tourists come to join the activities with them. Overall, it's beyond our expectation. Araksa, you did such a very great job on taking care of us!
