I didn't go into the gardens, was just enthralled by the cafe. Cute courtyard with tables, nice inside seating, and a large seating area in the garden. Good menu with a variety of specials with drinks included.

The range of plants and birds in this beautiful site was very impressive. We joined a tour being led by a volunteer docent, expecting to stick with her for only a short while, but then found her information more and more interesting.

These gardens are wonderful. Even though it was winter and a little early for the cactus to be blooming the walk was worth the time. There are many birds throughout and we followed a pair of Cardinals. Wear good shoes, bring water and sunscreen. Go...More

Sprawling and appealing with a stunning life sized horse sculpture surrounded by a ring of cactus, and a changing exhibit in the gallery, this place is delightful. We were there about an hour from closing time and didn't get to see everything but the sunset,...More

Thank you for contacting us. If you were to take one of our tours it can take up to 45 minutes, but if you decide to go it alone it can be anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours. Does that help?
