We spent the afternoon at Jewell Gardens in Skagway Alaska while on a recent cruise and found the afternoon absolutely fabulous. After touring the gardens, we sat down for an outstanding glass blowing demonstration. I have been to Murano in Italy and this glass blowing demonstration blew them out of the water. They demonstrated how to make one of those... More

We had the opportunity to experience the glass blowing at Jewell Gardens. Both my husband and I had a great time. Travis was a great hands on guy, and very funny too. His 'assistant' and our guide was MaHaddy. She was very informative and very pleasant. Both made our experience a good time. The gift shop is fabulous and they... More

My husband I took the Smart bus out to the cometary and then discovered the gardens. The flowers are amazing, but $12.50 to walk in? The gift shop clerk only charged us one entry fee as we were going to eat lunch, so it wasn't so bad. The tea house is lovely and it was a nice break from the... More

This is not your run of the mill excursion. If you like learning something new everyday then this is for you. The employees made the experience very interesting and foolproof. Travis and Haddie, both made us feel at ease and helped us experience a technique that obviously takes years to master. The gardens were beautiful, the tea room was a... More

This is a beautiful garden with many flowers and vegetables. There is a lovely tea house for lunch and all the vegetables come from their own garden. There is a moderate fee per person to visit the garden but one could easily spend two or three hours there. The gift shop (no fee) has many art pieces of blown glass... More

We arranged for the glass blowing experience after reading reviews on Trip Advisor and booked directly with the vendor. Our cruise ship offered different excursions, but nothing like this one. The glass blowing experience only accepts six people and you truly get to learn about and participate in the glass blowing of your own ornament. We had a very personable... More

We ended up here after a trip on the White Pass Train and bus trip to the Suspended Bridge in the Yukon Territory. A very nice ending to a activity filled day. Food was good, I was a little more hungry than they thought but a sufficient serving for anyone. Amazed at the vegetables.

Tucked away on acres of fantastically manicured gardens you find yourself in a "Chihuly" dreamscape! My granddaughter and I thoroughly embraced the artistic flair of the master artist in residence by the name of Madison. He was not only a truly gifted artisan but a wonderful teacher. Following our glassblowing lesson, we dined at the lovely garden-side restaurant and enjoyed... More
