Exceeds all expectations
This tour of a Sri Lankan cinnamon plantation was far better than I thought it was going to be. It was so beautiful with incredible views over the rain forest out to the Indian Ocean. We learnt about the history of cinnamon, how it came to be such a valuable, precious commodity, why it’s used so much in South America now, the health benefits and finally how it’s made. Rupert’s talk is fascinating and informative – my 13 year-old son, who is not the easiest audience, was gripped – and Rattu gave us a beautiful demonstration of how the bark is peeled and packed, dried and cut before it’s baled. It really is an art. We watched during lockdown and it felt so live and so real – if you can’t get to Sri Lanka or you want a Sri Lankan experience I couldn’t recommend this tour more highly. It exceeds all expectations.
