This is a tour of a beautiful garden with a rich history, but the best part is getting to blow glass. Scott was a superb teacher, made us feel like we were actually doing the work of a glassblower. Brooke was an all around terrific guide and personal photographer..

A beautiful garden with many flowers and shrubs but also including vegetables and a greenhouse showing what can be grown in Skagway.(a bit pricey.) Lots of lovely blown glass and a nice gift shop.

We were fortunate to visit on a warm day in August, and the garden was absolutely perfect. We took lots of pictures to record how they did things. There were surprises around every corner! Gorgeous, and it was free! Would love to visit again and again!

I should have typed this in May. This place is amazing. It is beautiful to walk through, the pictures don't do it justice. The customer services is also amazing, every person I encountered greeted you with a smile and "how are you today". I did the personal tour of making your own glass ornament. I am a huge fan of...

This extensive garden is worth the entry fee. Not only are there extensive and spectacular flowers, but the small train running through the garden, the vegetable greenhouses, and the hand-blown glass ornaments adorning the garden make for a charming walk. Don't miss the restaurant, Poppies.

My wife, Sandy, and I were on a 10 day cruise on Golden Princess Alaskan inside passage and she wanted to take this tour workshop in glass blowing. We made ornaments and saw a demonstration of a bowl being made. We also got a tea and dessert experience and walked through their garden. We were so excited about this class... More

Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and pleasant while the gardens were meticulous. The tea following the tour was great and the staff were very courteous and friendly. Great shore excursion!

We were recently in Skagway for a wedding, which was held at Jewell Gardens. The reception included a glass blowing demonstration that was incredible. I ended up purchasing 2 pieces - one that was already made, and the 2nd which the artist help me design. They were mailed to me and arrived in perfect condition. A wonderful momento of our... More

We enjoyed our lunch at Jewell Gardens. Soups Salads and Sandwiches especially loved the Rhubarb chutney! Gardens were absolutely beautiful and got wonderful landscaping ideas. The piece of resistance was a pieced of glass that they shipped home to us. It was a very memorable day & we can relive gthe experience every timewe look at the piece we made!

These are very lovely gardens for a small town. The flowers were well maintained and the vegetables looked delicious. The long hours of daylight help to create exceptional color in flowers grown throughout Alaska and this garden was no exception. We even got to eat a few of the berries that were in season when we visited. There was a... More
