This was the first time I've been in a real rainforest. It even rained a bit on our trip, but there are umbrellas available. The hosts were friendly providing everyone with hot tea and cookies after our 15 minute walk through the rain forest garden.

The drive through the forrest was nice, the view from the top was pretty but that was literally "it". Very small attraction.

We had a great time at the rain forest. Jeff and his wife are excellent hosts. They provided information, umbrellas,.snacks, and a.hot drink. The scenery was beautiful and the walk wasn't too long or strenuous.

It is. Upside down trees with plants on top. Kinda pretty.
We will be visiting Juneau in early September. What would the Rainforest Garden look like, and is the experience worth the cost?
