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.

A gray November day is not the best time to see Jungle Gardens. Nothing is blooming other than a few camellias and wildflowers. There had been a lot of rain the preceding day so the ground was muddy and water was standing where you’d like...More

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!

Surprisingly, I enjoyed the jungle gardens even more than the Tobasco tour and I really love tabasco. The gardens were quiet, peacelful, serene, litter fee, and we almost had it to ourselves. I think three other vehicles passed us the entire time, so very few...More
