Amazing Tour! So much going on here! - We happened upon PistachioLand activities since we were in the area to go to White Sands --- we were so pleasantly surprised at all there is to do (and taste!) at PistachioLand. Highly recommend this tour and hanging out in the store --- free samples (super yummy!) and the tour is really amazing. Emilio was our guide and he was fantastic. We learned more than we ever knew about pistachios and vineyards. It's worth the trip and the tour is definitely a must go!

10/10 recommend - The tour guide, Emilio, was absolutely delightful! Very informative and super knowledgeable! We enjoyed it immensely! I only have one suggestion for them… MAKE A ROOM SPRAY IN THE SCENT “UNRIPENED PISTACHIO”!!!! It’s an AMAZING smell!

Worth a stop if you are in the area and like Pistachios! - It was a fun stop and we got to see Pistachio Trees. We love Pistachios but knew nothing about their history and cultivation in the USA. Our guide, Emilio, was great and we enjoyed his information plus he was able to answer all our questions.

ONLY go in for pistachio tasting!!! - We bought our tickets through Viator and it is actually cheaper at the place. They also didn’t plan for us and the tour guide ran over on his 1st tour by 15-20 minutes. They made up the time on our tour. So it lasted 15 minutes tops. Also, don’t buy the pre packaged pistachio ice cream. The fresh scoop is $.25 more, it’s in a smaller cup but it is over flowing from that cup and it has large pieces of pistachio. The pre scooped is a slightly larger cup but it has a lid so it does not overflow. The pre scooped I would say is the bottom of the big tub and they just scrape the sides down and use the very bottom of the bucket to fill it. The pistachios are basically non existent in the pre scooped package. The actual pistachios that they have taste AMAZING plus they let you taste all the flavors! That was the only thing worth stopping for.
