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

They show you various spices and the tour describes how the spices are grown and used. We bought some spice packs and the flavours are out of the world. They serve a very... More

The food was really ..really bad,with a batter fried mackeral, white pea curry ,rice and roti and an ice cream; not worth the price: so crowded place, avoid the fenny sold in pet bottles or you may need a doctor like we had to.

On a fixed charge you can eat a simple but nice food after or before the tour of spice plantation. Guided tour is very interesting and educative. Tour guides know their spices well

We did it all! We rode an elephant, took some great pics, went on a tour of the spice plantation, ate their lunch and soaked up the atmosphere. Unfortunately the prices were in my opinion overpriced. It was 700 rupees per person to ride the elephant for 5 minutes. I have always wanted to ride an elephant so that made... More
