Interesting to visit the Government's Spice Farm with a local guide and to discover all types of spices. If you have never see one, it worth. Disappointing however because this is not really a farm in activity but just to show tourists how we produce spices. You may even taste them and buy small plastic bags with spices (at you... 更多
I had this spice tour arranged by the hotel I stayed in. It was not expensive and a nice outing to see the countryside towards the north of the town. It is probably about 30 mins drive to the spice farm, in a small minibus. We were shown many different spices and the guides explained quite a bit. We were... 更多
The guides know exactly what they are doing. Make sure you have a look at the rick doors of stone town, make your way to the market and buy something especially spices and clothes.
I absolutely loved this tour and the only downside was that we went out of season for cacao We got to try so many fruits and spices and tea, we learnt so much history and got an insight into local day to day living and working conditions. Our tour guide was awesome, humorous and spoke fluent English. Would recommend highly... 更多
Lots of fun! Lots of information to be learnt and spices to be tasted. James climbed trees to gather tastings and another person climbed a coconut tree to show us how to collect these.

Such a great cultural experience. Our second time on a tour. There are multiple choices for farms. I'm always amazed at the knowledge of the spices. The boys like the coconut climb and water. Everyone walks away with a homemade hat and feeling like they are better for it.
