It's a great tour, informative, reasonably priced and fun! One of the things I really enjoyed was being able to get a really good look at everything. The boats go a little too fast for that. It is well worth taking .
We've done it twice also. One time there were children on the tour and the other time just adults. Very different questions, but still incredibly informative. Loved going behind the scenes and having the time to really look around.
Have done it 4 times over the years.I always enjoyed it, we had great CM interns leading our tour group.They made it very enjoyable. They fielded many questions and were so knowledgeable it was great educational and entertaining tour.
I loved this tour. My DH is a farmer and is interested in anything that grows, so this tour was a must for us. The cost is minimal for the time you spend behind the scenes in teh greenhouses. It really is fun and informative! My DS and DDIL plan on taking it in August.
My husband's done it twice and loved it both times. (Boys weren't interested so I kept them occupied elsewhere!) Both times we scheduled it the day of with no problem at all. We were on Soarin early in the morning, so just stopped and scheduled it for later in the day. Had pick of times too! If I remember correctly, it was only about $15 per person and we used our Disney Visa to get a discount on top of that. And it seemed that you got to see a lot without it taking up your whole day. Would definitely recommend it!
I very much enjoyed the tour. I want to add to the previous post about being able to see all of Livin' with the Land, however. You do get to see all of the working research areas, but you don't get the see the animatronic stages. I really enjoy those as well, particularly the farmhouse. If you want to see those, you still need to do the ride as well.
