  • It was the best excursion in Alaska. The people were very friendly and informative. The food was simple and delicious; fresh from the garden. Of course, making the glass was very interesting. It's a little expensive to blow glass but well worth it. I have a memory hanging in my window. The grounds were lovely, as was the view of the mountains. It was a perfect day.
  • We had a wonderful lunch then toured the gardens. It was late June, so the weather was good. Hampton was our guide and he was very informative and took a lot of time with us. The gardens are exquisite, and I was pleasantly surprised that they were so large. I did not expect such a thing in Alaska! It was really a great time.
  • My husband and I got married at the Gardens last Tuesday (8/29/17). It was a simple ceremony and totally perfect for us. Brenna was amazing! She made everything go smoothly and was there for us with all our questions. Since we live in TN and were getting married in AK, it took a bit of coordinating. I am an avid gardener and the grounds were so lovely...I felt totally in my element. After the ceremony, Keith and I did the glassblowing. Travis, our guide, was quite a hoot and also a great teacher. We had a fantastic time! I highly recommend Jewel Gardens to anyone visiting Skagway. I truly hope to get to go back someday!!!
  • We went for the glass blowing class. It was a one of a kind experience. It was also interesting wandering around their gardens looking at their glass art that was placed through out.
  • Signed up for the glassblowing experience during which we got to participate in making an ornament of our own individual design! It was an awesome hands-on experience; the artist, Travis, was friendly, encouraging, knowledgeable, and clearly loves what he does! The hot shop overlooks beautiful small gardens that include some glass sculptures. There is also a small cafe, a gift shop, and clean restrooms. Our ornament should be shipped to us back home, so we don't have to worry about toting the fragile piece on the rest of our vacation. Highly recommend!
