This is a must-see in Goa if you are here for several days. Amazing food, an educational and fun tour, and certainly a bargain.

Was mildly disappointed with this one. The entire spice tour lasted about 15mins, excluding the waiting. Didn’t show a whole lot of spices, neither explained much. Started off with a welcome drink, then the tour, and then lunch. Lunch was pretty good.

Its almost an hours drive from the shores of Goa. Once you get closer to the location, the drive resembles a hilly ride! The place has a decent parking space. Once you get in, you are welcomed by the crew members with a nice welcome...More

Elephant rides have been discontinued. This is still a wonderful place to visit. Almost all varieties of spices growing in a jungle format. And a delicious meal is included in the ticket price. You can also buy fresh spices.
