  • We thoroughly enjoyed our guided tour. We initially weren't going to do the guided tour but we were glad we did. I think without the guide you miss all the planning that went into the garden.

  • Beautifully kept and meticulous landscapes make this a must see if you are on the island.
  • Great place! A bit pricy as the tour costs about 45$ but at he end of the day worth it! nice experience. We also had a great tour guide! Hint: take something for mosquitoes and plenty of water!
