  • My husband and I have been wanting to go here for a while now, we finally made it out to take a tour. It is a wonderful experience. There is so much to see our guide was so full of information. I definitely recommend this place. However, I would not recommend taking kiddos who can't walk for about an hour being that you can not take strollers in.

  • A hidden treasure. Glad we found it! Sad story about a man who wanted to build an underground resort but died before it was completed. Found amazing combinations of citrus trees.

  • I lived in fresno over 30 years and drove past this place daily before I ever visited. If you live in the area, you should definitely visit once. The tour is quite overpriced, though, so one trip is enough for me. It's sad to think how much of these gardens were destroyed by Shaw avenue or for strip malls and economy hotels. Classic Fresno move.

  • This place has to be seen to be believed. It's about an hour long tour through beautiful courtyards and rooms that were all hand dug by one man. there's even a clever aquarium. A Fresno treasure and a must see! ***Note they are closed during most of December, January and February

  • Most gorgeous place I've ever been. I hope it's still just as beautiful when I take my wife to see it.
