“Fascinating garden”
Reviewed 28 February 2017

Mr Abraham gave us a wonderful tour of his amazing garden, with lots of smelling and tasting along the way. He also has a well-stocked spice shop which we had to ask about - how nice not to feel pressurised into purchasing - of course we were eager to do so! Fantastic quality and value for money. This was a delightful visit and not to be missed!

Reviewed 26 February 2017 via mobile

We went to Abraham's Garden this afternoon and had a wonderful time. Abraham is very knowledgeable and let us sample many of the spices he grows fresh from the garden, a definite must visit when you are in Kumily. His coffee and spice chocolates are wonderful.

“The most beautiful garden!”
Reviewed 23 February 2017 via mobile

Abrahams garden is so beautiful and it is filled with so many different trees, shrubs and herbs. Abraham has good knowledge about all the plants and their possible uses. He is also just a really nice person to walk around with and chat. He won't make you feel like you are on a special tour with the purpose of making money. Its just so friendly and relaxed.

If you are a botanist or you are interested in spices and fruits and plants in general, this is the place to go!

I'm feeling like he is a friend and that I will come see him again. And after less then 2 hours of chatting!

Thank you Abraham
