interesting tour with lunch. Learnt a lot and had a bit of a walk. Not so keen on the elephants as they didn't look very happy. Bought most of my holiday presents here as it felt like more than just tat from the market.

Rip off deal. 400 rupees cost for one meal is outrageous. No fish in the menu. And the garden is no big deal.

This is an excellent location for families and children to view various spices in the guided tour. Also this location visit includes food, though the entry ticket is an expensive. Plan about 3 hours stay here.

It was very nice to see actual plants of the spices we all see and buy for the kitchen. The guide is very knowledgeable and also makes the narration quite interesting. Now I know that the most expensive spice is safari. At the end a nice lunch is provided as part of the entry ticket package. I strongly recommend a... More

Visit to to Tropical Spice Plantation was a different and an amazing experience in Goa. It was great to see such wide variety of spices that Goa produces. We were taken through the farm in batches and the guide was very patience and informative in explaining about every plants we come across. The place is quiet far about 48 kms... More

1. Beautiful views / surroundings. 2. Warm welcome. 3. Tasty food. 4. Informative tour about spices. 5. Open round the year. 6. Different face of Goa. 7. Disheartening to see the elephants in very poor health and shape. 8. No direction boards to guide you to the farm, Google doesn't show the correct location of the farm. Advisable to travel... More

Spent an afternoon here and saw how spices and fruits are grown and extracted, which was fascinating and a learning experience. Also the birds and the elephants are an added attraction here. Was a time well spent!
