We loved this tour. We didn't do the zipline because of ages of our kids. We did butterflies and canopy tour in gondolas. It was excellent and we really enjoyed it.

On a cold dark day, there was little activity in the butterfly garden. Although seeing the cocoons - especially the monarchs was educational and informative. Nice guide who was able to speak on many topics and answered our many questions. There were few others in...More
