The spice tour at Villa Vanilla was great. Our guide, Chris, was interesting and took us on a great tour through property. We smelled and tasted spices. There was a beautiful stop halfway with snacks made from the spices and a tremendous view! This tour is a must do. Hike was easy. Everyone loved it, parents and teens.

We loved this tour! Very informative presentation on herbs and their uses. We examined plants in their natural setting and learned so much about vanilla. Christopher was excellent and the treats we sampled were amazing. I hope to return in the future with my family.

We greatly enjoyed our visit to Villa Vanilla back in February. We traveled with three generations, and it was a tour that everybody enjoyed. Loved tasting the cocoa pods, nibs, and small chocolate samples along with the cinnamon and peppercorn. I never really thought about where cinnamon came from, so it was interesting see how it was harvested. The tasting at the end of the tour was delicious - so many small treats! Note that the guide does not wait for you, so if you linger to take pictures along the way you'll have to hustle to catch up with her explanation at the next area. You may want to buy stuff at the shop before the tour, since they were out of a few things afterwards.

We toured the spice farm two days ago, with Christopher as our guide. It was a wonderful experience. The farm itself is beautiful, and it was interesting to learn about growing/harvesting vanilla and the other spices. It was also a great way to experience new spices and tasted recipes that utilize the spices. We particularly enjoyed sampling the home made vanilla ice cream + chocolate at the spectacular viewing area. Highly recommend!
