  • This tour, about an hour, goes up a mountain in an open air tram. The flowers are unusually planted. Then the rain forest woods are majestic and the air so pure. The view at the top is awesome...

  • My opinion mirrors that of a lot of other reviews. We took the reviews with a grain of salt but hindsight should have listened. It’s clear that the owner spends a lot of time on the plants at his garden, a lot of which seem to be a product push for his secondary business, but little time is allotted to admire the efforts put in. Visitors are not allowed to tour the grounds until after paying and going on the 1 hour tour up a short but steep hill (not that you can walk much). You take a the extended golf cart up to the top and back down driving past the manicured gardens along the way with no time to admire or see the artistry behind it. The upside down trees are cute but not anything to write home about and certainly don’t warrant a paid tour. The tour also talks about the owner as if he is giving a gift to the land but is actually exploiting it with over priced, overrated tours. I think the concept of a rainforest garden is missed here. There is very little talk about native plants to Alaska or how plants survive the environmental conditions. If they want to continue the business they need to find areas to improve. The tour guide was great with what he was given but if he had been given more to work with, he could have excelled more.
  • Beautiful plants and flowers. Relaxing and informative ride to the top for some gorgeous views. Plenty of room to relax and buy a coffee and snacks at the bottom. And don't miss the live eagle nest cam.
