We loved it. Price was really good. It's also really pretty there. It is self guided but plenty of little film clips that are extremely informative. My kids are 9, 15, 19 and they all enjoyed it. I don't like spicey stuff but it was really interesting learning about the process. Now my son And husband love Tabasco and they LOVED it. Those 2 in the Tabasco store were like kids in a candy store cuz they were able to try a bunch of stuff. Be sure to try the Tabasco soda - it's yummy. Not what you would expect it to taste like. Place is great. Be sure to visit during the week so you can see the workers working in the bottling area. I'm glad I got to visit it. Great to see that this is still family owned and still do things like they did when they first started the company.
