The tour is brief but it does the job. They also offer a cup of tea and we are not pressured to buy anything. The place was packed with tourist coming by buses so it was very busy. All and all a decent tour.

Great place to see the locals making tea. The tour is free and you get a lovely cup of tea at the end. There is no pressure to tip your guide or buy anything from the shop, but of course we did!
