  • Fabulous guided tour. The owner, Abraham, is very knowledgeable about his vast array of spices. Lots to smell and taste. His passion for the spices and plants is very evident. Speaks excellent English and French, and we've heard, a few other languages as well. Can't recommend a visit and tour highly enough!
  • Abraham's Spice Garden has many different spices, coffee beans, fruits trees..many many more other fruits & spices tin many to mention here. I have never seen so many varieties at the one place before. Must see it
  • Herbal / Spices plantation , planty of variety, very nicely maintained also very well answered queries.
  • Excellent guided tour of a spice garden! The variety of spice plants here is immense, their aromas boggle the mind, and our guide also really knew his stuff and also knew how to communicate it well! The guide ends with a visit to a very nice spice shop with home grown spices, at slightly expensive but likely reasonable rates. We loved our visit here!
  • Highly informative about spices in a tropical garden of delights. Only 45 minutes, but so much learned. Go if you can. Worth a journey.
