Whether you live near Savannah, or you’re just visiting our beautiful city on vacation, a Bee Garden Tour at our Wilmington Island location will make for a truly memorable experience.
Tours start in the showroom with our observation beehive. This unique type of hive is housed indoors and is encased in glass, allowing you to see all the amazing activities happening within the hive. One of Savannah Bee Company’s educators will give you a little history about Savannah Bee Company and teach you all about honeybees, beekeeping, and the impact bees have on our everyday lives and the environment.
Then your guide will lead you outside to the bee garden, where you'll get up close and personal with a working beehive to learn about the behaviors and habits of honeybees and the important hive ingredients in our beauty products -- honey, beeswax, propolis and royal jelly. Don't worry -- you will be provided with beekeeper's hat and veil. Honeybees are generally very gentle creatures who mind their own beeswax, but we do want you to feel safe.
Lastly, head back inside for a guided honey tasting during which you can sample and learn about all the different varieties of honey Savannah Bee Company has to offer. Don’t forget to try all our luxurious body care products and peruse all the bee-related extras.
