Absolutely beautiful! The only suggestion I have to offer would be to place arrow-oriented signs throughout the gardens directing guests to the Conservatory, especially for those of us who are "directionally challenged". A great activity for the whole family and your staff did a fantastic job taking our family photo. The superimposed backdrop and butterflies added the perfect touch!

It was an amazing experience. I love butterflies and I enjoyed every minute of it. I came with my boyfriend and when we were coming here he said it was gonna be boring, but as soon as we walked in to the sanctuary and he saw all of the butterflies he fell in love. The only thing is I would recommend coming on a week day because we came on a Saturday and it was packed. But you’ll honestly enjoy it. I miss it already.

Our guide Nancy was fantastic! I was a little nervous about the boat and she stayed close by and checked in with me to make sure I was okay. The walking tour was great. Nancy had a lot of great stories, pictures to share and was very personable. She also made sure we had breaks in the shade, pit stops for beverages and restrooms. I highly recommend this tour! The sites were incredible!
