It’s a self guided tour. Very entertaining and enjoyable. It was staffed with very friendly people who gave a little more information. The store at the end is quirky and fun. Absolutely try the Tabasco ice cream!

We were on Avery Island and we couldn't pass up the Tabasco Factory, even though the product is too vinegary for our taste. It was a quiet morning, and though there were buses in the parking lot, we never saw busloads of people. I love...More

Who knew that Tabasco sauce was aged 3 years? The fact that they havent changed the way they make it in over 150 years is amazing. It is a self guided tour with some videos and signage. Doesnt take too long

It was self guided but if you had questions there are people there to ask. Most of the video stations gave you the information you needed.
