What people are saying about Santander

The park is spectacular, it is well worth a visit. In addition to the animals, children really enjoy riding the cable car, from which there are great views and the exhibition of birds of prey. In addition, the guide's explanations are so pleasant and simple that they are easy to follow even for children. My 8-year-old daughter learned many things. Highly recommended.

Great experience, with a good organization in the minibus pick-up, a great and pleasant guide, and with more time than expected, since they distribute each member of the excursion where it best suits them.
