National Tropical Botanical Garden Reviews
A magical place and an un-missable experience! I especially love the biodiversity trail and the Polynesian canoe garden (featuring plants brought by Polynesians on their migrations). more »
We were not able to take a tour but the gardens have an area that you can wander around. The garden area that is free to wander was wonderful. The foliage is well marked for identification more »
Way better than I expected and certainly worth the $60. Michael was our tour guide. He was insightful and had a great sense of humor. Really kept the tour interesting. Glad we did this tour.
My wife and I wanted to take the guided tour and I flipped when I heard it was $60 per person. The tour was a full 2 1/2 hours and was I soo glad we did it. Our guide was Bobby and he was amazing. He knew every plant, tree, statue, building , rooster and duck, their origin and how long they have been there. The property is absolutely amazing and I highly recommend a tour.
