  • Informative and beautiful! Had Brad as our tour guide. If I had time I would have gone back with a book and relaxed in a quiet spot. Once you’ve done the tour you become a member and can go back without a guide. Lovely place!
  • Uncle Bill and Brant spent 10 years converting raw jungle to absolutely stunning botanical gardens. Tours available and well worth the visit. Bug thanks to Brant for the after hours private tour.
  • The chocolate tasting garden tour was awesome!! Brad was super informative about plants in the garden, and shared a lot of information about plants for herbal medicine in the garden. The chocolate tasting part was also amazing. It was great to try a variety of different chocolates and be told about how they are different.
  • Beautiful gardens with gorgeous selection of plants. Our tour guide was friendly and very knowledgeable. Great experience 👍🏼
  • Had a great time on the botanical and chocolate tour. Highly recommended!
