Reviewed 11 March 2017

Interesting & informative guided walk through the plantation. So surprising to see such variety of plants & spices growing in the relatively small area that we covered. There is also a shop to buy the fresh spices.

“Very interesting, not to be missed”
Reviewed 10 March 2017 via mobile

No visit to Thekkady is complete without a trip to this spice garden. It is not very big so you can easily walk through in an hour. The tour guide is very knowledgeable and engaging and makes the tour really interesting. There is an abundance of spices in the garden and, if like me you are a foodie, it is very exciting to see the spices in their natural state.

“Really excellent Visit”
Reviewed 5 March 2017 via mobile

Abraham was delightful and the garden tour was excellent. His knowledge of the flora was excellent the garden was established in 1952 and the variety of plants was large. We had the chance to taste a lot of the herbs in. The garden. There is a well stocked spice shop. One request Abraham please put on a service supplying a cup of tea. Really needed one at end of tour.
