There is a guide that will walk you through different spices and explains how they can improve your health. You will also be offered a massage for free. Everything is free- but it is expected to tip the guide.

Worth going, the guide is very knowledgeable , the layout is very tidy so you can see all the trees very clearly . We did get a neck & head massage which was great and bought some massage oils they were really good.

Worth a visit to see how spices grow. Helpful guide explained about the spices and their uses in both the kitchen and for medicinal purposes (in some cases). There's also a shop on site.
