On our recent rip our tour guide stopped at this so called spive garden.There was nothing other than a green pepper, & Cardomum.The sales perso who was showing us around took us to their shop which sells so called pure Ayurvedic products.
He put a lot of stuff in the basket and at check out we discovered it had cost us almost $600 US.
We came home and opened one of the products ,labelled Sandalwood Oil only to discover that it was a gel with faint smell of sandalwood.
I do no think they have license to produce and sell Ayurvedic products. None of their packing has any date or manufacturers name .I have written to the Sri Lankan Tourist Authority & have not received a reply.
AVOID SPICE GARDEN TOURS & DO NOT BUY SPURIOUS PRODUCTS like we did.
