“Perfect "free" family fun”
Reviewed November 2, 2012 via mobile

On a recent trip to the Orlando area we decided to avoid the crazy Disney scene and take advantage of other Florida attractions. We stumbled on the showcase of citrus and found it to be not only educational, but entertaining for our group which included two grandparents, parents and two young school age children. The staff was friendly, knowledgable and created a great Florida tradition. We were impressed with the large variety of citrus grown there. The prices were unbelievably reasonable. As a teacher I could afford to bring back an entire bag of asstd citrus for my class. The shop is very down to earth and the "extras" made great photos for our memory book. Well worth taking in when in the Orlando. You won't be disappointed.

“Showcase of Citrus”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

This is a GREAT way to spend a few hours.
The monster bus tour was exciting and informative, the children even got to drive.
Our guide was able to tell us all about the country side and the animals, he brought good humor to the tour.
We also got to sample the fruit and other delicious produce ( honey was my favourite).
Got to see a Gator and a turtle!
Great guys, good value for money.

“Monster Trucks & Oranges: Who could ask for more!”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

This was a last-minute actraction we thought we'd try, and are we glad we did!
Monster truck safari through the forest/swamp, feeding oranges to the COWS (whats that all about ?) and an excellent "country boy" tour guide.....Lovely setting, pick fresh citrus from thier own grove, and they have thier own GREAT WHITE SHARK (Well, its 12ft tall and fibreglass, but details details...)
All in all, 10/10. Great fun and above all, family friendly.

“Very nice day out with the family and end up with great fruit!”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

We have been picking grapefruits here now for a couple of times and it's so much fun doing that as a family. And the bonus is that you get great fresh fruit for little money. Never ever eaten grapefruits as juicy and sweet as the ones we have handpicked here. There is also a nice little shop with some really funny stuff.
