This is a tour of a family owned fruit packing company. The tour was very interesting, the guides were informative and friendly. The tour is suitable for adults and kids. They also have examples of trees which are being grown for experimental purposes. Well worth a visit.

Oh my, where to begin with this.... Something for everyone. The basic tour was 8 dollars and they also have lunch tour for 14 dollars. The tour was informative with citrus trivia and a neat little area for children with interesting games as well as a "dont turn left" maze. They served an abundance of citrus from grapefruit to several... More

Found this place as a happy accident and had to go back and visit. We enjoyed the food and the fries were cooked to perfection. The fudge was excellent for dessert. Can't wait to go back.

Informative and enjoyable tours, a great little restaurant across the parking lot and the best fresh, unpasteurised juice around. OJ on offer depends on which type of orange is in season likewise grapefruit. Try their ice creams too, delicious. The staff are always friendly and can't do enough for you. Always nice little treats like home made fudge, fruit jellies,... More

Al's was a friendly place, the tour was good with a lot of citrus info, if you havn't seen shows like "How its Made", "unwrapped" or any of the other factory automation shows then the packing line would be very interesting to see. I wouldn't make a special trip just for the tour, but if you're visiting the Seal museum... More
