Best place for spice tours. In Spice farms tour you will enjoy a unique rainforest nature with lots of tropical plants, trees, spices. Taste and smell different spices.

Our driver has recommended us this farm and we were not disappointed.
I do have to warn you, apart from the entrance fee, you feel like you have to tip several people or buy several things, but of course its all up to you.
We did tip because the people were really friendly and funny and we did learn a lot.
We did also buy some things to support the community, we wanted to buy spices anyway and I dont think its much more expensive than at the spice market...

We took a tour from Mubarak and his assistant Isa in the community spice farm
On our way to Stone Town. I was reluctant to visit a spice farm which I was very wrong. We get to see many different spices, tastes and smells and learned quite a lot about cinnamon, cloves, ginger, nutmeg, lemon grass and many more. I say dont miss it! You get to buy locally produced herbs, spices and soaps to support the local community as well.

We had a great tour with a well informed guide. He showed us all the spices and fruits, we could taste them and got very much information. It is definitely worth doing it.

How all these spices are grown!?!?
Our driver (Benzino what’s app: 255 777 399 827) recommended Big Body’s Spice Farm- Mohammed, a younger brother to Big Body gave us the tour. He was so knowledgeable and patient with our annoying questions. Bring small bills for buying perfumes and salves in the middle of the tour. It is a really well done experience and would suggest this tour to everyone(even if you don’t cook).

We went to the spice farm with the family and we had a great experience. The entrance fee was negotiable depending on how they felt. Then you have to pay the 3 guides which worked out at 5 dollars each.
There were plenty of varieties of fruits and spices and we were treated to fresh coconut water and fruits from the farm.
Reasonably priced and a good experience.

A visit to big body spice farm is what you'd expect on a typical spice farm tour. There's a negotiable entry fee (ours was approx. USD15 per person), after which a local guide from the farm takes you round the different plants/trees/spices while giving a brief overview of each one. There was quite a wide variety of these on the day of our visit - coffee, cardamom, cinnamon, curry, vanilla etc. Visitors are also presented with gifts (usually artefacts such a crown, a necktie and a bracelet all made from plants on the farm) as well as allowed to drink fresh coconut water for free and eat some fruits at an additional fee. Towards the end of the tour, visitors are able to purchase local spices, perfume and incense all made from the plants within the farm (generally in the range of USD10 per piece).

At the end of it all, an optional tip to the tour guides is "encouraged." 🙂

Overall it's an interesting experience.

A very nice local spices farm. A must-see place as they sell the freshest spices which they grow. The guide was very informative and friendly.

So different than what we expected, but absolutely worth a visit! Very interesting, entertaining and insightful. We bought lovely spices and spiced coffee and tea, which is supporting the local community. The fruit tasting afterwards was also tasty and interesting.
