I was deeply disappointed with this tour. It is advertised as a tour of a sugar cane mill, cane fields, harvesting and touring a citrus plant. This was not the case, there was no actual tour of the facilities, just a very limited windshield tour. It was expensive $42/pp. We drove a couple of miles outside Clewiston and stopped at a cane field where we got a piece of sugar cane to taste. We did not see any actual field burning, harvesting or rail car filling, as he would not drive out of this field. He said they were harvesting to the west, but we would not go there to see it. He kept saying we had a schedule, don't know why because we were not going to be taking an actual tour of any plants, just spent time sitting in the bus driving around. Drove into cane mill and saw them dump a railcar and saw a large pile of sugar, that was the tour!
We drove to a citrus plant where we again just drove around to see some trucks of oranges parked in the parking lot and watched some oranges fall into a bin. No actual tour again. The fresh orange juice they promise you comes from a carton marked Tropicana. What a disappointment after being promised "fresh orange juice" You can see just as much on the road as you can see on this tour.
Had lunch at the historic Clewiston Inn which was again extremely disappointing. Our salad plates had been set out for quite some time before our arrival, the lettuce was brown (which was obviously brown when it was put on the plate), the onion slices limp. Only ice tea was available. Had to ask for water. The buffet was very limited, chicken, very dry meat loaf, mashed potates, so stiff you could hardly get them on a fork, very small corn bread muffin which was quite good (the only thing that was good) and the vegetable was a California mix of broccoli and carrots which were so overcooked they were mush. Nothing for a vegetarian in our group. No one ever bussed the tables.
While on the bus we saw a couple of videos of the operations so that is as close as we got to a tour. Our guide seemed to repeat what was in the video. I had read quite a bit before the tour as I wanted to be prepared. He missed many historic comments that would have been of great interest to the group.
Did a quick drive through town and saw some historical homes and drove up to the boat launch.
For this tour to be viable they need to coordinate with the facilities so the people on the tour actually get so see what they have paid to see. I do believe we have seen more just driving around. Skip this tour.
