This was an unusual visit, a bit like the final processing part of a tea plantation. Friendly guide - thanks Karen - and interesting to see that it is still a people based industry. With Nut-Med to buy in the shop to ease your aching joints and a restaurant just up the road that you probably won't find on Tripadvisor.

Was super interesting to see behind the scenes in the wonderful world of nutmeg. The tour is informative and the ladies working there are friendly. And if you ask them, its rude in general not to ask, you can take their picture. They are extremely proud ladies and were super friendly. Hard work done by hand. It smells marvelous in... More

It is fascinating to learn what all goes into processing nutmeg and mace. This quick tour takes you though the entire process from start to finish. A gift shop is on site to purchase spices and other goods.

It's always interesting to know where our good comes from....and getting to see how nutmeg is harvested, dried, graded, and shipped was very educational and fun! Would recommend the tour.....and the jar of Nutmeg Preserves that I brought home with me wasn't near big enough!! That jam was downright delicious!!!

Great to see nutmeg processed mainly by hand and by women. Very interesting tour that cost about $1/pp for a personal tour.

The local tour guide,s other job was to rake the nutmegs back & forth to dry them in dozens of drying racks. Everything is pretty well done by hand here. The ladies working in the plant seemed very happy doing the boring job of sorting,drying & bagging the nutmegs.The staff were all pleasant. It was a very informative tour. If... More

In this age of automation , it is amazing to see how nutmegs are processed and sorted in this fragrant warehouse in Gouyave . My only complaint is that the tour seemed rushed. I'm not sure about parking its kind of a busy street. Beware the lance bridge it is narrow and crossed by many trucks.

We had a tour with Frank who is great, he had all the history, of the place as well as an excellent description of what happened and why., the shop was useful for those small present that are needed back home.
