I thought we would see gardens with flowers and so forth. What they have is a nice walk through the woods. the couple that run the place are very passionate about the habitat and the trail is marked to tell everyone what kind of plant they are looking at, but it's really just a walk through the woods.. and not...

Interesting stop on tour run by husband and wife. Short walk on a trail and then a presentation with tea and cookies. I had a scooter and it is all very accessible.

Spent a rainy day in this rain forest attraction, which seemed appropriate. The gardens are relatively small but beautifully sculptured with waterfalls and inverted spruce trees as seasonal planters. Flowers were very colorful. Includes a shuttle ride through the Tongass National Forrest rain forest and up to an overlook of Juneau. It made for an interesting few hours. I thought... More

A small piece of rainforest with an interpretive trail marked with current blooming plants. The couple that owns and runs this are very knowledgeable and passionate about the area and rain forest. Nice educational stop while in the area.

This was part of a cruise line shore package excursion but was not worth the price. Yes it was peaceful but no really interesting points to the short garden walk. Morning tea was disappointing, would not recommend this tour to most people apart from travellers who can't participate in any other tours. Owners need to invest money into their enterprise... More

I found Jane and Jeff Svinicki's rainforest Garden to be enchanting. It is a little piece of heaven and a must for plant and vegetation lovers. Jane who carved out the meandering path of this lovely garden is a consummate hostess and her husband Jeff gave an interesting lecture at the end of the self guided walk. The walk which... More

Not worth it. This was part of a package that was grouped with the a glacier and tramway pack and if not for this we wouldn't have done it. Even so it wasn't worth it. The gardens aren't that impressive and you're forced to be there for close over an hr. The garden track itself is short and it's too... More

We drove all the way out there (lovely drive), but for some reason they had closed early that day. We were very disappointed. I guess you should call first to make sure they are open.

I wouldn't go out of your way to visit this place but if it's part of an excursion as mine was in sure most people would enjoy. Plenty too see in this 20 minute walk from wild flowers to moss covered forests, beat signs, statues and more. The owners are a very nice couple who treat you to light snacks... More

It was fun to take a self-guided tour through a real forest/garden where the many flowering plants and lots of trees are labeled and the stream had salmon spanning.
