This is an absolute wonderland of color and beauty! I have 8 black fingers and 2 black thumbs and I had a wonderful time! If you have time, be SURE to go visit the gardens!

Went to Alaska on my honeymoon and this was the best day we had. The whale watching was perfect and the glacier was beautiful. I highly recommend this for new people to Alaska or if you want a fun filled day. It only rained a little the whole day. It was perfect and one I will always remember

I'm a gardener so was quite interested and very surprised! My only complaint is that you have to find your own transportation to the gardens - not a big deal, we talked to the bus station and took a city bus that drops off just outside the entrance. Coming back just caught the bus on opposite side of road, 10-15 minute bus ride. Very worth it.

Definitely a worthwhile excursion. Great flowers, trees, and well informed guide. Loved taking the guided tram through the forest. The tree root flower baskets were so creative and beautiful. Mind boggling that all of this was created out of one man's imagination and persistence!

Definitely a different take on Alaska! Tour is short and sweet, worth doing as a filler.

This is a unique experience worth doing. The owners of the gardens take great pains to cultivate unique flower gardens on inverted tree trunks, and have carved out some lovely ponds and fountains throughout the grounds. The tour guides are local and very nice and well-informed. The history of the gardens are interesting, and you can even buy a guide that explains how to build your own upside down garden.
