Too expensive and the guide was not very informative. The gardens were stunning but I would not have taken a guided tour if I had known the guide would have so little to impart. Not worth the $30 entry fee.

What a beautiful labor of love! This plot of land was purchased back in 1982, back then being nothing more than a red dirt field. Today, it is a lush and gorgeous botanic garden, complete with whimsical and creative sculptures that create a fun atmosphere...More

Sorry for the late response. I would think that infants would be allowed on the tram. You could always call and ask them. They are very friendly and helpful.
