Best guide ever teaching about butterflies! I was most impressed to find such a knowledgeable guide and although I have been to better butterfly gardens I have never learned as much about butterflies!

It also is fun to just sit on some of the benches and observe... More

Very few butterflies for the price. Family of four cost $42!! Spent about 20 minutes and felt like we had exhausted all we could in regards to time there. Wouldn't recommend.

We visited The Butterfly Garden during our trip to St Thomas and had high expectations. While there were some butterflies, moths, and birds, there was not a large variety of them. The grounds inside the garden are ok, but the garden outside is actually a little better as we saw some cool plants and a hummingbird.

Kids will be amazed the habitat and life cycle of butterflies. The tour is very insightful as well a hands on. If you go they may even have the trained bird show happening.

When selecting my trip one of the key points of interest for me would be the butterfly garden as I was anxious to try out my new camera lense. The only issue we had is they needed to update their information on the website because we traveled all the way to Coral World to visit the garden only to find... More

The Butterfly Garden is a lovely respite from the more activie tourist activities and shopping stress on Saint Thomas. The staff is courteous and pleasant and the butterflies are well worth seeing and learning about. Although kids will enjoy the experience, it is a good one for people of any and every age. Use the coupon in the St. Thomas... More

A visit to The Butterfly Garden is also the highlight of our trips to St Thomas. The staff is highly knowledgeable and very friendly! We love that the Garden is right at the cruise port. So convenient! The garden was in full bloom on our May 19, 2014 visit. We saw an abundance of butterflies in so many vibrant colors!... More

We had a great time on this tour. We got to shop, see a good portion of the island and learn about butterflies.
