  • I highly recommend stopping here on your St Vincent journey. I also highly recommend grabbing a tour guide as the experience becomes that much better. Our guide was very knowledgeable and the gardens are full of interesting plants. We loved walking around getting to know the local vegetation or those imported from elsewhere. Definitely worth the stop!
  • Great tour by the resident guide, i was surprised at the history of the plants and trees. A fair walk from the port but at least we were able to experience a bit of real island life beyond the make believe of the cruise tours. Do not hesitate to visit.
