The experience at the farm Doble Actitud was very nice. Mihkel and Beatriz are very beautiful, kind, friendly, and caring people. They always made us feel comfortable and happy! They love their the farm, and it shows a lot because it is impressive and beautiful. I was able to practice my English, learn about the local culture, and learn a lot about farm life. I highly recommend it!

The farm experience was amazing! Mihkel and Beatrice make you feel really welcome like you are part of the family. They were really kind and helpful, they offered us a lot of information about the local towns, things to do around, and the culture of the country. We learned a lot from the farm work, sustentabilty, the importance of organic produce and farmlife. This was a really beautiful place to connect with nature, do some hiking in the woods and have beautiful activities and conversations with the family. We recommend this experience 100%!

The time on the apple ochard was wonderful. I immediately felt welcome and was able to have great conversations with Mihkel and Beatrice. You feel like part of the family on the project and I really enjoyed the time there. This family will always have a place in my heart and I already miss them. They always tried to make me feel comfortable, for which I am incredibly grateful, and also the other Worldpackers made the two weeks an unforgettable time, thank you for everything! I Hope we will see us again☺️🫶🏻

The stay is fine, the food and the room meets the objective, the activities in the free schedule consists of going to the 2 nearby towns, the amount of working hours are fulfilled. The good thing was to be in some social gatherings in town and see the local activities, The low point is that the family is not flexible, you have to coordinate activities in advance because they do not move their calendar.

Mihkel & Beatrice replied

Thank you for your feedback. We're happy to hear that you enjoyed the food, accommodations, and local social gatherings. We try our best to balance our farm responsibilities with volunteer activities, which is why we need to coordinate plans in advance.

From the moment you arrived, we asked about your departure plans to ensure everything would go smoothly. Unfortunately, we found out you changed your departure date after you had already bought your plane tickets and without checking if we could accommodate that day.

In this rural area, there is no public transportation to the airport. We are happy to be flexible with your departure date but we would have preferred you validate our availability to drive you before you booked your ticket.

We appreciate your observations and will use them to improve. Best of luck in your future endeavors

We had the most amazing time with Mikhel and Beatrice! They were both super welcoming and accommodating in allowing us into their home, and went above and beyond to make our experience as enjoyable and fulfilling as possible. If you are open and willing to learn, they are more than willing to teach. Could not recommend highly enough 😊
