Spent much longer here than intended, and despite being a clip joint it was quite fun and the guide was charming. We did buy one thing which was expensive but it seems to work, but we declined everything else. Quite educational, so worth a visit.

The tour was sweet and we enjoyed the tour, however did buy a basket full of stuff that was very overpriced and we knew this but was our last stop. Even the airport has cheaper stuff and the nutmeg we got home appeared to not even be fresh. So it goes! Cute little place though. Enjoy.

We spent like an hour there, escorted by a nice expert. He gave fair explanation about everything there. Also I had a free short shoulders and nick massage. We bought many items from them.

A local professor showed us around the garden and told us how each of the products was good for the body. Honestly he was really impatient and quite rude and he kept asking us to 'shhh' when he heard even a whisper from our group. They provided a small cup of hot chocolate and 3-5 min massage for the head... More

I'm not sure this place is really worth a visit. It was nice to walk around and smell the herbs, but often times it just looked like signs in the ground and you had no idea what you were actually looking at. For all we knew, they could have just been putting the signs anywhere and we would have believed... More
