Enjoyed my free tour and free cup of tea. Factory was interesting. They do try to sell you some tea leaves but are not pushy. Would definitely recommend. Try it, you might like it!

Not having enough time to visit tea plantations of Nuwara Eliya, we had to settle for Geragama Tea Factory, about 30 mins from Kandy. It seems that the factory owners are aware of this and in fact capitalise on tourists who are time-poor but resource-rich......More
