We had reservations for this tour between our first hotel and second, so this was a stop along the way. Have to say we were glad it was a detour and not the reason for our drive. Our tour guide was Michael, who was informative but seemed a little scattered. The tour consisted of mostly showing us the pineapples in the field, how they are brought in cleaned, sorted, and packed them for shipping. Because we were the only two people on the tour (they have a trailer that could hold more like 60 people) the tour took 2 hours, but was a lot of standing around. We probably could have done this tour in 30 minutes, but I think Michael felt like we had to get our time, so much of our tour was repeating and eating. I'm sure this tour would take much longer with a larger group which is why they say it is 1-2 hours.
The best part is boy, did we have TONS of pineapple!!! We did learn how to pick good pineapples, and the fresh fruit was amazing (as well as the pineapple drinks at the end) but don't go here expecting to have any "wows" except from your tastebuds.
(A couple side notes: Michael was also training another tour guide. So many times the other guide would say something and then Michael would repeat it. Patience is a virtue, but it was somewhat draining to hear everything twice. Michael also asked--because we had rented a car-- if he could have a ride back to the main road after the tour. Now we agreed to this because we really felt mean saying no, but it was unprofessional, and let's be honest... would you want a stranger with a machete in your car?)
