A vast area of spice plantation all green and serene. Walk through a bridge across a stream you are welcomed by staffs out there with a kumkum is put on your forehead and a small garland round your neck. Then they give you a welcome drink - lemongrass tea, which was different, worth a try. Then you are taken around... More

We learnt a lot about spices that we use every day - cloves, cardamom, betel nut, vanilla, etc. The food here was one of the best we had in Goa - very simple but extremely tasty. The area that the (very knowledgable) guide takes you around is quite small, although the (fully organic) plantation itself is spread across 100 acres.... More

I visited the Spice Plantation in october 2014 with my friends, on recommendation of our hostel hostess. We were greeted with a nice, simple flower necklace and a herb drink. I loved the tour on part of the plantation. Our guide was very friendly and kind, and seemed to know a lot about all the spices. She told us about... More

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.

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

It's around 30 odd Kms. away from Panjim. But you can always experience the scenic views on the way. You need to... More
