Beautiful Christmas lights.

If you are in the Metter area around Christmas you should definitely try to visit the gardens. Go after dark of course. The displays are just beautiful!

Wonderful people, fantastic historical review, great place to visit at Christmas. The workers greet you with a smile and are very smart regarding facts of the Bible. Take my family every year.

You have got to come during Christmas time. The lights are wonderful and meaningful. Make this part of your Christmas traditions. It is also a very beautiful place to have weddings or just to enjoy natural beauty.

Although the lights at Christmas are the highlight of the year, the gardens are a peaceful place to visit and worth a stop anytime. Spring would be exceptionally pretty. Fall would be an additional time that is cooler. Metter during summer is hot and has gnats. Chapel on grounds is nice place to pray and meditate.

Glad I searched Tripadvisor for towns on I-16 with something worth stoping for. I-16 from Savannah to Macon isn't too exciting. Happened to read about Guido Gardens and thought it'd be a good stop for our "roadside" picnic on our road trip. Beautiful and well kept garden with a sparkling, little water fall with pelican statues, benches & gazebos and... More

This was our first trip to Guido Gardens. We drove an hour just to see the Christmas lights and we really enjoyed our visit. The glass chapel was beautiful. The light displays of the animals and scenes from the Bible were a wonderful reminder that Christmas should be about the reason for the season, Jesus Christ. We would love to... More

Guido Gardens is always a great place to visit. Spring time the flowers are all blooming and makes a lovely setting. The best time to visit is Christmas when all the Christmas lights are out,it is magical.
