Good family fun

Our second time at the plantation and we enjoyed it just as much. The wild pig feeding was the highlight for our 3yr old. Will come back again.

We did the nature walk, train, lunch and orchard tour. It was AMAZING! Our guide was fantastic and we had a great time. We cannot wait to bring the whole family back!

We had a wonderful tour of the plantation on an old train. It takes about 45 minutes for this tour, but it is great for anyone, and everyone will enjoy it . You can walk around the old plantation, and visit the home which has been turned into a restaurant and shops.

Great time. The staff were friendly and easy to hear and understand on the train. Very organized. Had an amazing person during our rum tasting portion of the excursion - she was the friendliest person and had an amazing memory of everyone's name - 15 people - that's pretty great. The rum was terrific too. Shops had a nice variety,... More

The nature walk and orchard tour were beautiful, informative, and very delicious. It was an all around great time and well worth the money. Tiny was an amazing tour guide and very fun to spend the afternoon with.

The guide on the train was very knowledgeable and clearly explained the unusual trees, crops, and livestock we passed. When train stopped so we could disembark to feed some livestock, the little children on our train really had a great time feeding the goats, pigs, donkey, etc. We took just the rail tour, not the walking/rail tour.

It was a whole lot more than a walking tour. It was a hard climb and I would still be at the bottom of the ravine if the tour guide had't helped me out. Should warn the people beforehand that it is a strenuous walk before you go.

Our 2 yr old loved every minute of the train ride and feeding the animals! The adults also really enjoyed the ride and the tour guide on the train has lots of interesting details and information about the plantation. Definitely worth a visit!
