“Nice side trip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

This was a nice side trip, bus through main part of Freeport on the way to the Gardens. The Gardens are lovely and we enjoyed ourselves. Our guide was quite a bit on the "theatrical" side of docenting, but she knew her stuff. It was a nice day and a pleasant alternative to shopping. The history and the importance of the Groves in developing the Bahamas, was quite interesting. Would recommend it.

“Amazing garden”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

I loved the work they put into it and all the tour we got. Of course they tried to sell you stuff on the way out but what place doesn't.

Beautiful relaxing garden...and great salad at the cafe located there. Time went by too fast, I could have stayed there for days.
