We booked the 1/2 day garden tour with Mandoo directly for our cruise when docked in Grenada. It ended up that there was another couple from our ship signed up with Mandoo too. We were flexible as to what we saw in our 4 hours so ended up going along with what he suggested seeing. We were pleased to see an overview of the island which included a spice plantation, rain forest with fresh water lake in volcanic crater, monkeys climbing on my husband's shoulder fed with fresh bananas that Mandoo bought for a snack, beautiful coastline scenery. It was obvious that Mandoo was well respected and a revered local. He was so professional and knowledgable. Very capable of answering all our questions and adding interesting antedotes on our travels. He is a wealth of knowledge and very personable. We enjoyed his sense of humour and interesting stories. We had a comfortable trip in his air conditioned van and learned a lot about Grenada. Would definitely recommend Mandoo.

A great day. Mandoo has an encyclopaedic knowledge of the Island and he made the day extremely infomative & enjoyable. To see what we wanted there was a fair bit of driving and so it was great this was masked by a superb commentary.

We booked Mandoo's Spice Island Tour based upon Trip Advisor Recommendations and e-mail exchange with Mandoo. One major mistake marred a very good experience. Our Van included passengers from rwo ships with different departure times. As a reult the trip felt rushed and we never made the scheuled stop at the Annandale waterfall. We spent too much time driving with only two stops in four hours.

On the positive side, the driver was very knowledgeable and informative and regularly pointed out the various spices as we drove around the island. This was the only tour on our cruise that did not provide any beverages

Mandoo Tours Grenada was OK, and next time I would consider someone else to book with. There were only two of us in the van for the day and the driver was very pleasant. However there was no drinks, food or entrance fees to attractions included in the tour. This made the trip very expensive for $50 US each and since all other Caribbean tours we have been on, provides all sorts of drinks and some sort of lunch.
We were on a Caribbean cruise visiting Grenada, so we chose to book Mandoo via the internet based on some reviews. We spent far too much time on the van driving passing several sights of Grenada, mostly rainforest. The highlights were the Spice plantation display, Volcanic Lake and the monkey.To my wife and me, we felt that we wasted our day, should have just got a taxi and spend the day on a beach on the island.
Mandoo should follow other tour operators and provide a bit more than just transport. Any other Taxi could have provided that service...

We visited Grenada the Celebrity Eclipse but booked our Spice Tour Mandoo online through our travel agent. There were 18 of us on his excellent 24 passenger bus. Mandoo is a self taught teacher passionate about his island and youth. he talked non stop during the 5 hour tour and everyone was enthralled with his knowledge of the island - the history, the vegetation, the people, the politics, the spice industry, the impact of global warming and globilization of the island and its economy During our stop at the spice farm, he explained and demonstrated how the various spices are obtained from the plants. The stop at Grand Etang lake to see the monkeys was entertaining! We would highly recommend Mandoo if you want to learn about Grenada
