A great authentic experience! So much to do, but at a relaxing pace. Walk through the villages and interact freely with the locals. Visit the Chagga underground tunnels, waterfalls (walk and swim), lunch, coffee farms, de-husk  roast and crush your own coffee and drink it, a live museum - which was amazing by the way. Oh, and a stop at a banana beer bar on the way home.
