  • Informative, fun way to spend an hour. Good guide. We enjoyed seeing all of the flowers, including all the incredible tiny orchids. The guides were good. Guided tour took about 45 mins. This was a really nice short activity that was perfect for what it was.
  • Informative tour, but a little underwhelming compared to some other things you could do in the area
  • Really unique, cool experience-very beautiful place with a wonderful guide.
  • Many orchids in bloom, even during off season. Staff had some knowledge.
  • Excellent place! Super informative tour (about an hour). We learned a lot and enjoyed the time there. Highly recommend.
