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!

Went there with my 2 little kids. Even though the weather left much to be desired we had a great time. The best part is when the train stops in the middle of the plantation and everyone gets to feed the animals with the food that is provided by the tour guide. That is really entertaining especially for children. Our... More

I would recommend this activity to families. It's great for the kids to get out to feed animals and see all the vegetation on the property. The guide was super personable and knowledgeable. I highly recommend this activity.
