We thought it was a lovely place to visit and learn about how different spices grow. The audio guide was great as well. The restaurant was worth eating at.

I didn't know what to expect but I was so happy that we went. The herbs and plants were well labeled and very informative. The audio recorders were an interesting way to guide us through the garden. Great places to stop and take photos.
