We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to McBryde Botanical garden. Go on a Wednesday morning if you can so that Neil can be your guide. It would be okay as a self-guided tour but not nearly as educational and enjoyable.
Really enjoyed the Trail and beautiful gardens. The tour guide was very knowledgeable. Its self guided and you can walk the trails at your leisure. Only negative is you have to be shuttled in and out so on there schedule
The gardens are spread out over a relatively flat terrain wih thw spcimens pretty much alone rather than grouped in bunches like the LImehuli gardens. the beutiful shpwer trees in the parking lot are worth he visit. Youn can take a guided tour or go...More

What a wonderful place! I learned so much about native plants as well as the mission to protect a wide range of native plants and endangered species. It was simply beautiful. We had a volunteer tour guide named Neil. Wow! He was so knowledgable and...More
Amazing garden! A fantastic selection of local and other tropical plants in a beautiful setting. We took the self-guided tour and were very pleased. Lots of informative signage, too. Very knowledgeable staff, as well.
We took the self guided tour and was very disappointed. Plants needed water and the only flowers were some locust trees. The pathes were not well marked. I expected more flowers and manicured areas. It was all open dry landscape.
