  • Was the most delightful experience, went there with a group of friends. Aas soon as you get off in their parking space, you just walk down a small bridge to take you to the spice farm across a little waterway, with ducks and geese in the water. As soon as you enter the farm there's a traditionally dressed lady waiting for you with a garland . You can then avail of their buffet lunch and rest awhile and have a guide take you along the tour of the spice farm. You can see a toddy tapper climb the tree and jump to another tree all at the same time , once you are done with the tour as you walk back you can opt for a little splash of water down your backside and feel how cold the water is. Soon it is time to go back and after the lovely time i have had there I feel that I can recommend this place to any one wanting to go there.
  • One of the best place we visited in Goa which was full of new insights into the herbs that we put everyday in our vegetables and other dishes. Cloves, Cashew Nuts, Cardamom and many more. Around one hour of tour into the jungle with many species of plants mainly herbal plants and being guided and explained about these plants was really enlightening. We got to taste Cashew Feni one of the most famous alcoholic drink in Goa along with freshly cooked lunch. Must Visit Place.
  • Tropical Spice Plantation firm in Goa,at Ponda,though it is a bit far from Ponda and we went there by bus from Ponda towards Keri.a -20" journey.Soh beautiful.You will smell the aroma of spices.It is 150acres firm, and guide will take you a spicy tour around 2 acres of the firm around 40" time and will give you a in-depth knowledge of different plants.Entry-fee is 400 INR for every individual,includes inside tour and lunch.There is a small shop inside selling spice packets,can take as a memento!
  • Really cool experience. They have a ton of different spices all within a short walk. The guided tour is really cool as you get to see what spices look like as they grow. Tons of them I had no idea what they looked like! The lunch they served was pretty basic but good. Nothing too crazy.
  • A must visit for spice lovers. It is a private property. Mainly an extension of an actual and big spice plantation. Entry charge is Rs.400 and they give you a guided tour of the place along with decent lunch. A great deal I must say. Staff is very helpful with a smile on their face always. You can also buy organic spices and oils from their shop.
