It was a great experience! We were shown and explained a lot, we were able to make stops and the plantation was impressive and very interesting. At the beginning we were shown how to make fried banana dough and cuzcuz ourselves in the house of a local family (Mama Lisa), we were able to try it out and then eat it together, a great experience. Our tour guide Fidel was very nice and a safe driver.
