  • Opportunity to get to know most of the spices and exotic tastes available on earth with ease. Got the chance to tase cinnamon and kinds directly cut from its trees. You can also shop a wide variety of spices and aromas specially prepared and bottled up, might be the freshest you'll ever get.

  • You must do the tours with a local who know the agriculture, I recommend Hatib from stone town ask the concierge peace at Zanzibar hotel . It’s very interesting organic farm

  • A lot of learning about spices and fruits in a short time. You leave with a better understanding of the sources of spices and food, and you have a fun time learning about them.

  • Good place for a 1 to 2 hour tour.

  • Fun and informative tour. My wife and kids loved it. It lasted about 2.5 hours and I could have used about an hour. But I'm not into spices. I think the wife and kids would give it five stars. Our guide was great.
