  • It is one of the good places to visit, walk and chill. Very good environment and very nice feelings around it. Many choices are available for selection. Our time were well spent and I have a great time with my accompany and my whole group. Thank you very much and appreciate for the time. Have a great day and night today and tomorrow.
  • Kiambethu is a must must see. Whenever we have guests from Canada, we make sure the "Tea Talk" is part of their Kenya experience. Fiona is a fantastic host. Her knowledge, he hospitality, and her very sweet demeanor make the experience so pleasant. Her staff are very welcoming and dote on guests. The Meal they provide for lunch is a feast. Arrive hungry. You won't regret it. The food is locally sourced and much is grown on the farm. Even the ice-cream and heavy cream from thier cows. The geography is stunning. The rolling tea fields, Fiona's garden, the majestic trees and fauna, it's such a beautiful and peaceful way to spend part of your day. DO NOT MISS THIS EXPERIENCE!
  • Interesting, educating and charming. Sweet old lady (Fiona) explains pretty well but speaks quietly, so be sure to sit and stand really close to her. Nice and tasty lunch.
  • Very detailed presentation about tea business from the plantation of tea trees, harvesting, processing, marketing, auctioning, exporting and more. Wonderful history of the tea farm from the grand-father of the current owner till now. A short trip to discover the neighouring forest. Excellent lunch with wine, beers, ice cream. Perfect service provided by the local personnel and special care and attention from the owner. Thanks for this instructive and wonderful day.
  • Beautiful place with astonishing views. A true gem outside Nairobi. Everything from the tour to the lunch given at the end was great.
