This was an amazing experience, truly one of a kind. This is definitely not something my wife and I would have ever thought to tour and we had such a wonderful time that we are looking into possibly getting our very own bee hives. We would absolutely recommend this unique experience to anyone.

Thank you Maria and Guillermo for an AWESOME and totally unique experience! My boyfriend and I both thoroughly enjoyed everything about our time with the bees, and our excitement lasted throughout the day even after the session concluded - we just had so much fun! Their property is beautiful and the bees are spectacular. Maria is so knowledgeable and personable, and we loved chatting with her, learning from her, and getting to handle the bees. It was really fun to wear the bee suits and she was kind enough to take some great photos for us as well! We will be back. If you are considering this experience, do not hesitate - book it now. It was awesome.

This was such a great experience and super helpful to get some hands on experience with bees. Once I move out of my apartment I want to get bees and this taught me more than any of the books or videos I watched. They also sell great honey : )

It was a great experience. Maria was our host and she did a marvelous job. I wish I would have worn lighter clothes bc they give you a heavy jacket and pants. Which do a phenomenal job of keeping you safe but I was overdressed and was feeling light headed.

If you are hesitating because you are scared to get stung by a bee, don’t be :)! Maria is extremely knowledgeable and will ensure you are protected throughout the entire experience. It’s a first hand, up close and personal, mind-blowing, informational adventure that you won’t be disappointed in! She explains the process, shows you examples, demonstrates how to do it all, and then let’s you become a bee keeper for a little while and it is the most amazing thing! I highly recommend this for a date or just for something new to explore! I now have a new found love for bees!

It was worth every single penny! I was a little apprehensive at first, but decided to take the leap of faith and I am so happy I did! Maria is absolutely wonderful. She showed me the worker bee, the drone and the queen. How to spot the difference with the larvae and how much royal jelly they're given. Their behavior, etc. This is such a unique experience. Highly recommend!
