Informative tour of the spices and herbs, with oil infused herbal remedies freely on offer. The shop is really cheap for the quality of the products. The migraine bottle cost a pound sterling approximately, and worked brilliantly.

We were all really looking forward to visiting this spice garden and we certainly weren't disappointed. From the moment we arrived and were greeted by Sashini and Ruwandi we felt so welcome and learned so much. My daughters helped Sashini to prepare a Sri Lankan lunch of dhal, pol sambol, pol roti, chicken curry, pumpkin curry, fish cutlets, aubergine salad... More

I went with a friend who is an aroma therapist and we ended up spending over 2.5 hours here! The owner is young, inspiring, and very knowledgeable. The tour was fun, light, educational and tailored for us. By the end we actually couldn't believe that we didn't have to pay for anything and we gladly would have. This is NOT... More

After hearing horror stories of Spice Garden tourist traps, I found Euphoria Spice Gardens. It was further than I wanted to travel from Kandy (about an hour and a half by bus), but it was worth every mile! I was greeted by both the owner and guide, and was offered a delicious herbal tea before they took me around the... More

If you're anywhere near matale then this is a must do. We did the cooking class which was not only great fun but excellent value. We enjoyed a feast of dishes at the end. Ruwandi made us feel so welcome and was generous with her knowledge of Sri Lankan cuisine and the herbs and spices. The grounds are beautiful and... More

I suggest to stop hereby by for a very interesting half an hour to one hour tour: the guides were extremely kind and knowledgeable and not at all pushy on sales: you buy just if you are interested, otherwise they give you a big smile and say goodbye. They were so kind to prepare a local roti for us and... More
