We had a wonderful time touring the gardens with Jane today. She is very knowledgeable and clearly loves talking about it. We saw beautiful gardens, sloths and monkeys. Although it was a hot day the shaded garden kept us cool. A lovely afternoon well spent

I'm so glad you enjoyed the garden which is so unlike the idea of a garden, more like constant taming of the jungle! Jane is a great guide with her enthousiasm and love of nature.
Wow, what a gem. We were here for a wedding ceremony and it really is beautiful. The wildlife, the flowers and beautiful well kept grounds are breathtaking. I didn’t take the tour, I just wondered around for about 30 minutes after the wedding following paths...More

Glad that you enjoyed it. It was a perfect wedding and lots of fun with entertainment by the local college drumming band. I hope you can return to enjoy the full tour of the property.
We went to the botanical garden today, and it was closed. Our taxi driver on the way back connected us with the owner, who said it would probably be closed until December. So call ahead!!
I put 5 stars so as not to hurt the...More

Tours outside of the scheduled tours on Mondays and Wednesdays are available by reservation and I like to have a minimum 4 people. It would be good if you can find others interested to do the tour, if not there may be other enquiries closer to the date. If you could provide me with your email I could keep in touch with you that way.
