This was such a fun and beautiful trip. Our tour guide Jeff was really great and set the tone of the entire trip. The pear picking was fun. You get to ride in a tractor to the grove and pick as many pears as you want. The show stopper came next at Longwood Gardens. I highly recommend going to the stone Chimes Tower, the Main Fountain Garden to see the water show, and the Conservatory. I would sign up for this tour again in a heartbeat.
What a wonderful experience. I decided to book this tour so my six-year-old boy can pick some apple and see how beautiful is nature. I don't have the tour or the driver names but they did a wonderful job. We got to the Fishkill farms within an hour and a half. The weather was amazing. We only paid $5.00 dollars to enter. You have the choice of selecting to buy a small, medium or large bags. Prices are a range like this. $9, $20 and $40 dollars. I will say take the medium bag. We have so many apples for $20.00 dollars it was amazing. I want to say that due to the D trains tracks work for my family and I was late for about 10 minutes and the take tours guide waited for us and called us to make sure we were coming. I am so thankful. The Orchard have three types of apples that were ready to be picked. Jordana, Fuji and the Gala. I totally recommend the Fuji, they are sweet and good for an apple pie. As you can see my family and I had a good time at the farm. My six year old saw the rabbits, the live music, the pumpkin, the Jamaican food that was delicious. After you pick the apples you can enjoy a walk on the farm. Once we finished at the farm we head down to Palisade Mall. It was my first time there and I like it. The mall has entertainment for the children, Go karts, Merry-go-round, food, ice cream, and stores for the adults to buy. Overall it was an amazing tour. Thank you TakeTours for the comfortable Bus you provided for this tour, the air conditioner, the seats were very comfortable.
