Was mildly disappointed with this one. The entire spice tour lasted about 15mins, excluding the waiting. Didn’t show a whole lot of spices, neither explained much. Started off with a welcome drink, then the tour, and then lunch. Lunch was pretty good.

Elephant rides have been discontinued. This is still a wonderful place to visit. Almost all varieties of spices growing in a jungle format. And a delicious meal is included in the ticket price. You can also buy fresh spices.
