This was a fantastic day. The gardens were truly lovely and the tea was wonderful BUT The main adventure was getting to learn how to blow glass! We all got to go into the factory and make a christmas ornament or paperweight. They even ship them home for you so they arrive unbroken. My husband and 2 boys( 10 & 13 ) all made gorgeous glass pices and learning to blow glass and work the different colors in was a cool( well actually hot- 2000 degrees!)life experience Highly recommend!

This fantastic garden experience has a restaurant open Friday and Saturday nights only, and it was five star. Don't miss it.

Gardens were good, but missed most of the commentary. Next time will like to know more information.
Liked to gardens, but don't rush the trip. For you it is everyday, but tourists are there once in a lifetime. Remember that please.

I was pleasantly surprised how much we got to participate in the glass blowing experience. I thought our participation was going to just be blowing through a tube, but we actually got to do quite a bit (turning the pipe in the oven, putting the colored glass on, swirling the colors together, and blowing). We went on the morning tour and had a lovely tea after we were done blowing glass. It was really fun and something a little different and unexpected for a trip to Alaska. The gardens are really pretty too, and it was quite amazing to see how big the vegetables get in Alaska with the extended hours of daylight.

We did the glass blowing along with the garden tour and everyone loved it. Unique and fun but not cheap!
