  • Gained good knowledge on the spices. Very scenic location and polite and friendly staff. The trip itself is extremely reasonably priced given that it includes the tour package and the meals too! The meals were rather decent in offering variety with great taste. Great experience
  • Superb experience of a completely different kind. Completely in tune with nature. It feels like a one day holistic healing experience by food, sights, sounds & smell - all contributed by nature. The staff is very polite and obliging. The elephant ride and bath are AWESOME. The elephants too seem to have picked up the passion, affection & hospitality of the plantation owner and handle the baths / rides in a very loving manner. I have heard people visit goa for only 2 reasons - Beaches & Tropical Spice Plantations !! Cheers !! Please keep it up.
  • I liked it. A nice experience to walk through the tropical plantation. The lunch was ok and the elephant ride was a unique experience.
  • Well... Was quite well presented.. The guide was knowledgable.. Chicken curry was cartilage and beaks. As for the elephants.. I was giving them the benefit of the doubt with the bathing elephant was shackled. But the the female who was giving rides.. The chap on top climbed on by grabbing it's ears and walking up its trunk instead if just getting on again and to take photos he stuck a spike under its chin to lift it's head up.. Apart from that I would recommend it.. Just take it was a Warning for the softies!!
  • Absolutely loved it! Peaceful place with a revitalizing elephant bath and a tour of the local spice plantations... At the end of the tour there's a chilled surprise which was amazing!!
