  • I entirely agree that this company is a scam. A so-called Ayurvedic doctor, who is also researcher for Lilly in Alsace (impossible to verify) laboratories, keeps us a pitch on the almost miraculous virtues of various spices. We questioned him on how he combines his role of pharmaceutical researcher and guide to the spice garden, he tells us not work 3 months a year as a researcher. Not very believable. His speech is riddled with contradiction. For example, he told us that its products treat the causes of disease, not the symptoms as traditional medicine. When we stop a little to the description of products, curative claims that he mentions us concern the symptoms, not the causes. It's almost anything! It's a beautiful show which aims to hold out to the people they are going to solve their problems of health, by some miracle, or even be able to lose weight without effort. He plays on the sensitivity of people. Avoid. Too bad that tour operators (in this case, Visit Lanka) encourage such places.

  • The visit of the Park is very interesting but the passage by the shop cools the atmosphere! exorbitant prices and tested for a miracle product a visit to Lourdes would be more effective

  • The guy who gave us the tour wanted us to believe he was Ayurvedic doctor. The shop is excessively expensive. It's a big scam! Stay away!

  • The information that the guy gave us was more or less interested, but they just want to sell you their products, and they are not the special that they said. Just beauty products!
  • The actual information about the spice plants themselves, is very interesting but that is where it STOPS!! This is a SCAM - BIG TIME!! PLEASE Beware of these shady, swindling, con-men, scam-artist, fraudsters! Most of their products [if not ALL] are super cheap re-branded imports. The pills that were supposed to reduce fat being absorbed by the body made me very ill and cost US$315 for 180 small green tablets that were not adequately labelled and were crumbling into a powder. The ancient hair removal cream that you only use three times and your hair is then permanently removed forever and NEVER grows back [reputedly used for centuries by monks, the so-called Doctor told us] was very badly repackaged Veet. Two were a pink cream and three were white [and the cream was all splodged over the outside of the tiny pots during filling] and cost hundreds of US$ for these tiniest of little pots. I am too afraid to use the other products I purchased. I paid rediculous amounts of money for the products, having believed the fraudsters. Please be very, very aware!
  • THIS IS A SCAM!!! At first you are greatest for an interesting tour of the spice garden then led into the shop to purchase there products. They charge up to Rs 15000 for single products of there 'herbal medicine'
  • Bought the hair removal cream its not the same product as you demonstrate. Its actually just veet you are ripping people off!! I have reported this to Newmarket holidays and your tourist office all your products are ridiculously overpriced and you are a con man.
  • Nice tour but all ridiculously priced products can be bought at a fraction of the price at the Kandy market. I would like them to have enough business but at these rates you are scaring everyone away!
