  • We chose between various possibilities and it went well, from Panajim to Ponda bus and then a taxi to Keri. The place is clean and well maintained, the welcome was excellent and revolution in the plantation tour is guided and our operator was very good. Included in the entrance fee there is also lunch.

  • Well Maintained, cool and peaceful place but not worth the Entry fees of Rs.400. Good local food. They serve an awesome Lemon-Grass Cardamom Tea. Visit only if you have never seen any spice plants. They show you: Black Pepper, Cardamom, Turmeric, Vanilla, Cinnamon, '5-spices', Peri Peri Chilli, Maize, Cashew Nuts, Beetle Nut plants.
  • Came here as part of a tour of Goa. I really enjoyed this experience. You get to the spice farm by crossing a long bridge across a lake. The bridge is a bit rickety, but it adds to the charm. On the other side you're greeted with a shower of petals and a talika. It's fascinating to see all the plants we cook with every day, but never think about where, or how, they grow: black pepper, cardamom, turmeric, vanilla. It's like something from the pages of The Mistress of Spices. At the end of the tour, you get a refreshing dose of cool lavender water down your back and treated to lunch, served on recycled palm leaves. You can even sample their homemade feni, a lethal moonshine unique to Goa, distilled from cashew nut apples.
  • This place was cool, got to see a bunch of nature and learn alot about where spice come from. Very calm and fun destination. And bonus food at the end.
