“One of a kind”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

When out-of-town friends & family visit, this is a first stop on the 'what to see in Fresno" list. From LA to Philadelphia to Australia, we've taken everyone to Forestiere Underground Gardens. We took our kids on occasion when they were younger, everyone enjoys this one of a kind marvel. We make it an outing, being sure to eat at In-N-Out Burger right across the street, either before or after!

“What a unique place!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012 via mobile

We had a great time while walking around this unique underground house!!! The history behind it is very interesting too! The tour guide was really good and funny.... It is really very amazing... I recomend it!!! $14 per adult to enter... I think it's worth it!

“Unique lifetime experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

A fantastic attraction in a flat/hot ordinary city where you don't expect anything exciting. On the contrary, this garden has become one of very few places I would like to revisit or recommend it to others! I love it and was inspired to accomplish more in my life!

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

Worth stopping at. It's big and beautiful. Mostly covered, with some outdoors. Knowledgeable staff. Kid friendly.
