Wonderful & energetic team at Crossroads Foundation - from Patrick who took us on an introductory tour, to Ming who hosted the Blind Experience! Ming was extremely kind, encouraging and an excellent host in the darkness which felt extremely daunting initially. Take time to explore or hang out at the fairtrade cafe after your experience! Worth the 1 hour bus ride I took from Mong Kok!

This is a very unique experience, and we would consider going back to try other offerings at Crossroads. This is a compassionate NGO that should be supported for its fantastic work and mission. Patrick (our host) was very informative and passionate about the work they do. He also was patient with answering my incessant questions =). Ming, our guide through the "African village", was amazing. He knew where we were in the dark and always jumped in to make sure we were a)comfortable and safe, and b) accessing our senses. The fair trade shop has beautiful things to purchase. Bring $$ and support global small business!

This really was a unique experience. It gave me a chance to step outside of my normal daily life and get a peek at life for a blind person. I highly recommend it for anyone looking for a break from their normal routine and get a little more perspective things. Crossroads is great!
