The half day "rice experience" is educational, entertaining, and enlightening. At the conclusion...More

The experience itself was great, but we got a guide whose English was pretty poor. Even many of the American guests had a very hard time understanding what he said. I had the chance to hear some of the other guides in passing, and their...More
