“Excellent!”
Reviewed 16 March 2017 via mobile

Abraham has an amazing variety of interesting plants and he knows everything there is to know about each one. The sights and aromas give you a true sensory experience as you make your way around this beautiful garden. Abraham's passion for plants is so apparent and he takes time to explain anything you may wish to know on a relaxing, slow-paced tour. We simply walked in off the road and he was happy to show us around. We were so impressed with this interesting man. Highly recommended!

“Interesting & educational”
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.
