A great couple of hours

Quiet, laid back, educational and beautiful. The houses are beautiful and Captain Tony was awesome! Hard to believe it is all man made.

Beautiful scenery, clean restrooms and something for everyone! The cost was 44 dollars for three adults and one child but well worth the money spent. Beware the shops on site because they are much more expensive than the port Lucaya marketplace. So if your staying in one of the resorts in Lucaya buy your wares and mementos there. One of... More

This was a nice place to go and get away from the beach for a couple of hours. It takes an hour and a half tops, and if you can arrange your own transportation, the entry cost is $15/person. It was a fun hour, but not worth the $35+ the cruises charged for it. The tour felt rushed, and there... More

We had an amazing rehearsal dinner here. Julie the owner pulled this all together for us 2 weeks before we go there. They had a shuttle service pick us up, Dewayne was our amazing driver from Nature tours. We had the entire place to ourselves. The food was sooooooo good. Mahi mahi was amazing and the chicken so yummy. The... More

I thought it was a bit pricey (around $15pp) but the plant life was beautiful and the walk was very peaceful! www.wanderingologist.com

A nature walk, quite and pretty. Some weird looking ducks, a load of turtles with water falls and flowers. The Groves built Freeport and this garden was a dedication to them. There'a a couple of shops to buy some local crafts and a restaurant on the water that was a little high priced. Our ATV ride ended at this park... More

The tour guide this day told us why the Groves was named this after a man who did so much for the island. We ate at a quaint little outdoor restaurant in the middle of the botanical garden. There was a waterfall and chickens walking around.

Last year (2014) we took a tour to Garden of the Groves and it was gorgeous! We didn't have as much time to spend there as we would have liked since it was a bus tour. I want to visit there again, but we didn't take the time to do it this year. It is very peaceful and relaxing to... More

we visited on our trip just to do something different. Fine for an hour or two but not an all day adventure. We happened to be there on our 24 year wedding anniversary so we renewed our vowes in the chapel and had a couple of laughs with our friends. It's a good voice for something non-beachy!

We stop here on our Jeep tour. We only got to stay for an hour and half. I wish we had more time to explore the 12 acres. We enjoyed all the plants and wild life around the property. We had a nice lunch there too!
