These gardens are not to be missed. They are painstakingly designed and maintained with love and passion for gardens. The admission price is worth it beacause you can return again and walk through the gardens at your own leisurely pace.

Great tour - well worth it the price. The Botanical Gardens were beautiful and our Guide was extremely knowledgeable! The chocolate "lesson" was also very informative and the chocolate tasting was quite delicious as well.

We visited the garden while we were killing time before a red-eye and found it a delightful and perfect activity. Very casual and relaxed. Not hot in July when we went. Not muddy either.
