I was expecting an in-depth tour of citrus groves and the process of growing and selling fruit. The grove part of the tour was minimal and disappointing. Most of the tour was the wildlife refuge - this was interesting and well done.

We had a groupon for a tour. It was really neat! Of course, the best part was the ice cream at the end of the tour!!!

We enjoyed the tram tour through the fruit trees. My kiddos loved the animals & we thought the gentleman who talked about them was very informative & could tell he really cared for those animals. We tried the orange ice cream too!
