A very interesting tour of 2 acres of the spice garden. Our guide showed us many spices which were supposed to cure anything from tummy upset,baldness and romance!! The lunch provided was basic but did the job.

I like cooking and i am not indian so for me it was really nice time to learn more about indian spices during 45 mins guided tour followed by lunch. In my opinion not expensive and worth seeing.

They treat us nice and on arrival gave us a necklace of flowers and a hot drink. Then a half an hour trip begun. An indian lady was our leader. She showed us about ten different spices plants and explained the effect of each in a very good manner. It was good but nothing special . I don't know the... More

Had been to Tropical Spice Plantation with few of my friends in the month of December 2014. This was my second visit to this place; the previous one was in the year 2011. The place is just awesome. It's around 30 odd Kms. away from Panjim. But you can always experience the scenic views on the way. You need to... More

short of expectation to sum it up...specially after a 2 hour ride on ferry from panjim to phonda on mandovi... food is average but included in overall package .....spending whole day just to visit spice plantations that too just 10-15 types is waste of time...

An interesting trip around the plantation learning about all the herbs, spices and plants. The shop at the end is great and we all purchased lots for quite reasonable prices. I wouldn't recommend the elephant ride or washing that is offered next door - it was a poor show and the staff are rude. However the spice plantation was fun... More

We like to travel around when visiting a foreign country. The visit of the spice plantation was interesting, as we have been shown spices growing in the nature and how they are being treated after harvesting. The spice-packs that they sell are very cheap and of good flavor. They served a very tasty meal. In total it was a good... More
