    The gardens here are absolutely gorgeous. You're allowed to walk around the grounds with your dog and they are happy to have them, with bowls of water scattered around. Unfortunately dogs aren't allowed on the trolley tours anymore, but I highly recommend you take it anyway. It's fascinating.

    A Cuppa Tea In The Morning

    Hal and I had a relaxing morning exploring the Tea Plantation. They were very dog friendly, offered him water and took our picture with Paddy.

    Sipping the day away

    Great patio to take turns while going into gift shop and factory tour. Would have liked to go on the trolley tour but dogs where not allowed. Employees were very friendly to us and our dog.

    Dog friendly

    As we arrived at the gift shop entrance, an employee came out with a bowl of water for our dog. My wife and I said we would take the factory tour separately. She offered to watch the dog, so we could go together. As I was buying tea, I asked about taking our dog on the trolley. She said we could, if nobody objected. The tour guide told us there was only one time he refused a dog. All said, we enjoyed the visit.

    Bring your mosquito repellent

    The people were very friendly at the plantation and we were greeted by the resident canine. We walked around a bit. Didn't take the tram as our time was short. One of the ladies inside was kind enough to stay outside with my dog while I shopped quickly in the gift shop (Dogs are NOT allowed). That was nice. She made sure he got some water, too. Mosquitoes are EVERYWHERE and it could ruin your visit if you aren't prepared.

    Dog friendly, but nothing to do!

    The grounds of this tea plantation are dog friendly, however the building and tour is not. The building is just a gift shop, and the tour is the only thing to do. We attempted to walk around the plantation a little, but the path was maybe only 150 yards long and then it was over. It was pretty, but nothing beyond that.
