  • our guide, a boho impostor as they took us to this sorry rachitic plants spice garden, they did do a massage (so to speak, since they pretty much just smitten and garbled with who knows what oil) and then demanded the eats. We tipped the cumulative but wanted a adding gratuity for each person! then they proposed products with absurd prices and gave the driver a percentage. they're crooked!!!

  • Run away, they are professional burglars. A big storytelling to take you money at the end on a "Ayurvedic" shop. Charging you 20€ for what you buy exactly the same on the supermarket for 1€. Be ware don't stop !!! The government should close it if they prosperous for the tourism.
  • It has been 9 months since I went to Sri Lanka. I went to New Ranweli spice garden and bought sandalwood and it was good. Once again I want to go to New Ranweli spice garden and buy sandalwood again. It's best.
  • They will show plants with its associated oil or cream , and the benefits of using it , plus a free massage (but u have to pay tips at the end) ! Then take u to their pharmacy, here be aware that the prices are very high compared with reel value, example one oil used against mosquito we bought at 15$ , I found the same in a normal supermarket at the price of 380 rupees!
  • be very wary, a well orchestrated scam to intise money from tourist, apart from that not a bad experience
  • Very detailed and informative tour with friendly guide. The tour was free with possibility to buy spices (okay prices) at the end. Would recommend it!
