  • We thoroughly enjoyed our guided tour. We initially weren't going to do the guided tour but we were glad we did. I think without the guide you miss all the planning that went into the garden. We've toured several on the islands and this was among the best. Great day, well worth the 3 hours. We'll have to come back and do the sunset catered dinner.
  • The guided tour of the Allerton gardens were a great value with a mixture of history, botany, art , culture, architecture and movie trivia mixed in. Something for everyone
  • Very cool and worth the entrance fee. You take a bus to the McBride area. We didn't have trouble with mosquitos.
  • Beautifully kept and meticulous landscapes make this a must see if you are on the island.
  • Loved it. ..
