Very nice staff, very informative tour. Whatever you want to know about vanilla you can learn here. We did the tasting experience and tour. It was good but if we had to do it over again we would just come up for coffee, ice cream and look at the gift shop. It was neat to see the vanilla vines. Stop by if you have the time.

We had a wonderful time learning about the propagation, harvest, and curing of the vanilla orchid/bean. Zach was an awesome guide and host. I couldn’t believe he only started 4 months ago. The lunch was fantastic! We highly recommend everyone take a tour.

Did the basic tour and learned a ton! However, the “tour” has only one stop before returning to the main building. While tricky because vanilla flowers infrequently, it’s more of a “Vanilla Talk”, than a tour. Still informative nonetheless.

Ian, the owner and founder’s son, gave the tour. He was highly passionate and knowledgeable about vanilla and the company and gave a tour complete with insight on the business, growing practices, challenges, and even how to make vanilla extract. He was well-spoken and answered our questions at the end. We were lucky that we got the tour from him! I appreciated how we also got complimentary vanilla tea/lemonade, vanilla ice cream, and espresso from the tour. We loved the ice cream so much we bought a delicious Kona milkshake and a few beans afterwards! Highly recommend.
