It was a nice drive around the gardens. We stopped and had a picnic inside the gardens with some nice scenery. We didn't see any alligators while we were there but we did see quite a few birds.

Even though it is winter this is a beautiful place with huge oak trees and lovely gardens. The Camillas were outstanding.

Great experience. We did this in December and it was great, it would have been outstanding in the spring or summer. Very well laid out and well explained at each stop. It is a self-driving tour.

Jungle gardens is an oasis of beauty with rawness of nature splattered. We loved the manicured gardens among wilderness thrown here and there.

Since we came to tour the Tabasco factory we thought a nice driving tour through a garden would be lovely and it was. Cute gift shop that you stop in to get a map and see a stuffed alligator. The trail is beautiful, so many...More

We enjoyed our tour of jungle gardens today. The relaxing drive was beautiful. We enjoyed stopping and walking around at the various spots. We will definitely be back in March to see the snowy egrets nesting...I can’t imagine how fantastic that is to see!
