    Great place. Everything is written in French +English +German. You get a fist full of popcorn at the start to feed the monkeys who roam freely. Restaurant has chips sandwiches, sausages etc... And ice-cream, (drinks are expensive). Very clean and well kept. The tour can be done in 1 hour if you are fast, we ate and spend the afternoon, 3 hours. Enjoy 🙈🙉🙊

    There a lot of reviews on here already, but I had to give my impression as well because it really is a great place. The "thing to do" amounts to a pleasant walk through the forest, surrounded by monkeys. Moneys are everywhere! You get to feed them and watch their behavior up close. It's brilliant. Great for kids and adults. Even me - an engineer - felt something strange in my body that could have been described as a kind of feeling or emotion when I was feeding a monkey :) There are lectures several times per day, where you can get an idea of what the park does for the monkeys, and how it is managed. The monkeys will ultimately be reintroduced into the Atlas Mountains of Africa, so your €'s are well spent.

    Very calm monkeys. Our 7 and 10 yo kids loved feeding popcorn to the monkeys. We spent 1.5 hours here and took some awesome pictures of kids and monkeys.

    My kids loved feeding the monkeys and the handful of feeding popcorn is supplied by the staff,a good day out. Free parking and a pinic area with clean toilets. The park closes for lunch,so have a picnic then. Rocamadour is a great place to visit too, about 3km drive away.
