    Informative Tour with a Nice Lunch
    We wanted to do a spice farm tour while in Goa to learn about the Indian spices and the drying processes. We arrived at the farm and were instructed to follow a path leaving to the starting point. We were greeted with petals thrown on us and then handed a nice cup of tea. Our tour started quickly and the tour guide brought us around the farm and showed us all of the different spices grown there with explanations of the spices and the processes carried out on the farm. I found the tour very informative and learnt a lot about Indian spices. We were then brought for lunch that was served buffet style on a thali plate. The food options were great and exceeded expectations. There were lots of options to include daal / curry / chipati / rice / pickle chillis / sweet rice etc. and the staff brought out new food constantly so it was plenty hot and you could eat as much as you wanted! Myself and my friends are vegan so we were very impressed with the vegan options available having had disappointing lunch options in other areas of India. We also bought some of the spices directly from the farm at a fair price. Definitely worth a visit in my opinion.

    Good time pass in the midst of nature
    This place is located quite far from south Goa area like Cavelossim. We took a hotel cab and reached this place. Nothing really great but for first timers it will be just a good experience. I have visited such places in Coorg, Wayanad and Bali, this is just a minor version of those. The entry ticket will cost you around INR 500 per person or grown up kids which will also include a lunch/meal. The total area of the farm is over 100 acres but the tour will be within 1 or 2 acres for around 30-45 mins. There are Hindi, Marathi, Goan and English speaking guides available. Based on the crowd, they will assign one guide. The guide will show various spice and coffee plants and tell also about the processing of those agri by products. Before the staring of the farm tour they will provide herbal tea and post the tour you can buy spices, coffee, chocolates and other medicinal products from their store or you can proceed for lunch. The only one thing I was not very happy is they took more than 10 people in a group for our tour. Otherwise this place is worth trying.

    Spice Heaven
    Spice heaven, a great tour with English speaking Francis. A refreshing cup of lemongrass tea to start and an opportunity to read what some of spices can do for you. Then a walking guided tour with Francis around the farm tasting and smelling the herbs first hand. Turmeric, nutmeg, mace, cloves, five spice, cinnamon , lemongrass and vanilla are just some of the delights we were introduced to. In addition we learnt how feni was made and saw the cashew apple and heard the stories around it. Introduced to some amazing flowers as well. We got there at 11am and had a guided tour just for the two of us, with a refreshing back treatment with water at the end!

    A lovely place to spend half a day.
    Great place to spend half a day. Really informative guides and very friendly. If you go for a guided tour you not only get the guide but lunch also. Good selection of Really tasty Thali dishes. Both veg and non veg. The Farm Shop has a an array of herbs, spices and essential oils. Plus other gifts. You can also buy their own honey.

Nothing here stands out which you can't get in another city. For a forcible 500 Rs, you get an average food plate, a small walk around a small space with talks about specific spices and a shot of Feni. Not recommended for anyone.

Great tour by Francis, around the spice farm. Only the 2 of us in the group and Francis made it very enjoyable and interesting. Had no idea how some of these spices grew, or what they can be used for. The lunch was also fantastic.

We had a decent buffet lunch here (far from luxurious, but very Goan) followed by a 20 minute easy tour of the garden, with our competent guide pointing out the trees and plants that are used for perfume, food and medicine. A nice change from churches.

Sheer waste of money.
We need to buy Rs. 500 ticket even if we did not wish to....
The food was also pathetic ... The quality of the food was not good at all and it was compulsory to have it which was even more worse......

The cab drive unnecessary recommend this place as very good , must watch etc..half day will get wasted in travelling..Drivers get commission for taking travelers to this place.. per head 500 Rs. They say food inclusive but bad unhygienic food..Do not get fooled and wast half day to benefit cab drivers.
Not worth the price to see.. Full trees and plants that's it...
