  • Impressive gardens and great hospitality. Showed up spontaneously and still got a great guided tour by Abraham himself. We tried many fresh fruits and spices on the way through the gardens, all for free. They have a nice little spice shop, too, to support the gardens. Overall a very informative and entertaining visit. Definitely a highlight of our trip!
  • We had the most incredible spice experience visiting Abrahams spice walk. So much time was taken to explain taste and talk to us i couldn't recommended this place enough. Set in a beautiful garden of wild flowers and walk ways spending an hour here was time very well spent. Even purchased some spices and coco powder
  • We went there in pouring rain. Mr. Abraham was kind enough to still take us around the garden. It's beautiful! And he is a very knowledgeable person to see it with. It was lovely to feel, smell and taste all the different varieties of bark, stem, fruits and leaves. It's like he has put together all possible spices in a very accessible area. And not only spices. He has exotic fruits and dozens of varieties of some of them. This was an education. I would love to back there again and spend more time!
  • I would recommend anyone visiting Kumily and Thekkady should visit this almost 65 years Abraham's Spice Garden. You could see, feel and take in the aroma of the spices. They take you around the garden explaining each plant, tree,flower,fruit, nuts. You could buy fresh spices from their shop. Mr Abraham is a kind and patient person. He credits his grandfather who started the garden in early 1950s.
  • A Wonderful place to get educated about the large variety of spices and other intrinsic plants of Kerala. Highly educational and interesting for both adults and kids. The guided tour takes about an hour and cost Rs 100/- per head. Well worth it.
