Best garden I have been to
Nov 2021
We spent a few hours with Mr. Abraham who went above and beyond to introduce us to a whole world unknown to us. He was so enthusiastic about his garden, herbs, and spices. We learnt a lot from him. He is an incredible man with a beautiful garden. Extremely knowledgable. This is a place that you must visit!

Off the beaten track - spice garden and nature lovers

It was a very genuine tour where Abraham himself took us around his garden. His knowledge about all the plants and how to cultivate them was simply astounding. Very educational tour and throughly interesting. We enjoyed every minute we spent with him. Make sure you visit his garden if you ever go to Thekkady.

Beautiful place for nature lovers!

Mr. Abraham has a humongous collection of exquisite herbs. flowers, spices and fruits. He gave us a two hours trip of his garden, showing us all the varieties and letting us taste everything. We also got to taste some local fruits like the passion fruit which has an amazing taste. He seems to know each and every tree and shrub and the knowledge he shares with years of experience is priceless.

Excellent spice garden tour by Abraham
Mar 2021 • Couples
We already had a tour in some other spice garden but they gave us a 15 min tour and gave no proper explanation but then we heard about abraham and went there just to get spices, however we were so amazed by Abraham's passion and his knowledge about his garden that we had to take a tour again and I would say that it was completely worth it. If you are in thekkady don't miss out on this place. They also charge very genuine prices for the spices that they grow in their garden. All other plantations around kumily and thekkady are very commercialized and charge very high prices.

Excellent experience. Cab driver or tour operators will never take you places which really stands out. Mr. Abraham gave us a detailed walkthrough of his spice garden with unique sense of welcomeness. If you actually want to see how natural spices grow then this is the place. Do not miss this if you are in kumali. Super experience. His garden is also nominated by BBC.
Go there once, Do not miss. Thank You.

It's a beautiful, well-maintained spice garden. We saw a lot of spice plants, fruit trees and ornamental flowering plants. We got to taste the real mint/menthol. Saw the huge lemons, cocoa, coffee varieties, rare fruits and seeds and many more.
Loved the spice tour and it is the best part of my trip.

Site that one must visit, atleast once!!!!

The garden tour was truly amazing!! We got to see how the spices that we use in our day to day cooking are grown and cultivated, along with many other well known and lesser known plants. Mr Abraham was a great guide, eager to impart his wealth of knowledge regarding the great variety of flora present in our country, along with their uses and also very friendly. We had a great time exploring the garden, feeling one with mother nature. Truly worthy of being one of eighty gardens chosen by BBC.

Best Spice Garden
Jul 2019 • Couples
The spice garden is managed by Mr Abraham family and is spread over many acres. When we arrived, it was raining heavily. We took out our umbrellas and started the tour. It’s feels like everything is there in the garden and Mr Abraham shares such interesting facts, uses and varieties, medicinal qualities etc that one is amazed at how beautifully such a garden has co-existed. Each and every inch of the garden is planted with something and is a treat to walk around. Highly recommended if anyone is in Thekaddy. Don’t miss out the organic products which can be bought at his home. 😀😀
