We took our grandchildren from Australia to Birds of Eden, what a wonderful experience for them. Our guide whose name I sadly forget was terrific. He was very knowledgable and had a lovely sense of humour.

My girlfriend kind of dragged me here but I'm really glad she did. The birds are beautiful and it's all organised in a responsible, sustainable way.
