I enjoyed being a client of Suncoast for sure. I did two tours but started with the Spice Tour. My guide picked me up on time and drive me to one of the farms as he explained local history and how the spice farms came to be. We walked through the farm and he,for the most part explained every spice we came through and had a local get them for me for tasting and touching.
The same local makes a crown of leaves for female clients, very touristy but I didn't mind.
Part of the tour involves tasting fruits and this was the best part for me for sure. Some of the best tasting fruits of my life and yet I am African (Kenyan)
My two points of critique are this, I understand Swahili and at some point my guide negotiated with the local, skipping some parts because he was tired, he didn't raise this point with me though. I paid for a full tour and that is what I expected.
Second, at the fruit tasting and the palm tree climbing you are nudged to give a tip, I am not against this but I was surprised since I had almost zero cash on me (all on my card) please do something about this.
All in all I enjoyed the experience and please note there is a chance to buy local soaps, perfumes and the spices themselves at the end of the tour. My guide was good and he made sure I was constantly hydrated. Very thoughtful. Tour price can be negotiated as well. Suncoast comes highly recommended.

Mohamed was a very knowledgeable guide and knew a lot about the uses of the herbs in medicine. We were shown many rare spices and it was very interesting to see how and where these spices grew. A very hospitable team who gave us coconuts and an assortment of fruit, with an opportunity to buy some spices.
Would highly recommend this tour.

Very nice trip. Recommend. Guides are friendly, punctual, ready to answer our questions. We saw many interesting plants trees. They explained about all the plants. Gave us enough time for photos and videos. Special thank to the guys who made crowns and bracelets out of plants.
