Our guide Nancy was fantastic! I was a little nervous about the boat and she stayed close by and checked in with me to make sure I was okay. The walking tour was great. Nancy had a lot of great stories, pictures to share and was very personable. She also made sure we had breaks in the shade, pit stops for beverages and restrooms. I highly recommend this tour! The sites were incredible!

The butterflies flies around you. They are just beautiful to watch. They even land on you. You can take great pictures there and as well as the botanical garden. I even have great pictures of my daughter for this year Christmas cards.

The trip is worth it, for those of us who have little time very well invested, one can enjoy this wonder and have the opportunity to see rainbows, almost as if they could touch them. No queues, everything well organized.

We really enjoyed this activity. It’s so beautiful see all the butterflies flying free in the environments that they love so much

An unforgettable experience. The bus is a bit long but as soon as you get there you know it's worth it.
