I Visited in Feb & was amazed to visit such a nice place. The Problem over there is food is not that great. But Ayurvedic Stuffs like the Lemon-Grass Tea & Lavender Oil is truly great. We were shocked to discover things on spices. The Guides are very good in knowledge and they share many useful tips for body &... More

Went with a group of 14 friends. The tour was very interesting as they show you how different spices grow and explain how they are processed for consumption in food or medicinally. The tour includes a buffet lunch with a few choices of dishes which was very nice. I didn't find a prawn in the prawn curry or any chicken... More

We visited in January 2016 at the recommendation of our hotel's concierge, to include as part of an Old Goa sightseeing itinerary. We were very interested in seeing the spices in the wild and thought that the tour -- thought short -- was conducted well. Our expectations were quite neutral, so we were not disappointed. A plus for us, and... More

I am writing this review now, although I visited back in October 2013. I recently visited another spice plantation in Goa which prompted me to write this review. I really enjoyed the ambience and cleaniliness of this tour and plantation. The lunch was really delicious, especially the masala rawa fish. Good value for money. I preferred this location to the...

Unfriendly, rude, abusive and biased staff. And if you want to pay 400Rs and eat the worst food you can get in that amount, you must go here. Highly advisable to not go here.

I highly recommend not to visit any of the spice plantation in goa. They are nothing against spice plantation in kerala or any botanical garden in your city. They are very professional and you feel like cheated. 400 for a wastage food and 15 minute walk with salesman like lady guide. Wastage of time and money on any kind of... More

This spice plantation is located next to a small pond. The bridge over the pond and the scenery around is very soothing. The spice tour was quite informative. For a person who grew up in India, the information wasn't much new. Perhaps it is exciting for foreigners. Food was very authentic. The price of the trip is worth only for... More

If you've got several days in Goa, this is a fun way to learn about the origins of spices and herbs that you may never pay a second thought. Learn how cloves, cardamon, vanilla beans, ginger and more are cultivated. Enjoy a tasty meal at the end. There's even elephant rides if you're so inclined. I avoided this as I... More

It was fascinating to learn about the spices with the informative walk through the plantation. Shop was good with plenty of supplies to buy and try. The only thing which let it down was the food. Cold and not really very appetising, they need to sort this out or eat somewhere else.
