Its natural and organic with some good hospitality by the staff.Food was good.....i mean really good and was served in a bit different way....it is a cool and soothing place in goa....better to be there if we want to just see some natural things otherwise its boring.....Youngsters can avoid this place as lots more to be done in Goa.....

Had a great few hours at the spice plantation. We took an English tour round. Just myself, my friend and a lovely older English couple. Our guide was fantastic. Knew everything about all the spice and we got to smell, taste and learn a lot. They showed us 'Tarzan', who is a man who climbs trees to get nuts down,... More

Honestly, this was the crappiest place we had had the misfortune of visiting in Goa. It is simply waste of time, money and energy. There is nothing that you can "learn" from a small and horrible tour of spice plantations. Apart from it, the food that they serve is undoubtedly the worst you can find anywhere in the world. Trust... More

The spice farm was part of our Old Goa and temples tour done by taxi (₹2500 from Mandrem). On arrival, we were welcome by our guide. (Young women, unfortunately I don't remember her name). Each guest is welcome in a traditional way by offering Aarti, Kumkum, and a garland of flowers. After glass of delicious herbal tea, we were taken... More

Our group was small and made it a great learning experience and our guide was very knowledgeable while being warm, friendly and invites questions and comments. The tour includes lunch and we found the buffet good and plentiful. The major positive aspect of this tour is... More

This is totally waste of time and money. Very bad food. This is private land. Who needs these information in Goa? Taxi driver took us because of commission.

The tour includes a guided information about spices their detailed information and how they are grown. The tour of 30 minutes is followed by a buffet lunch ( price... More
