After reading reviews and after visiting a butterfly garden in Koh Samui I was looking forward to this visit. However I left feeling exceptionally disappointed and annoyed. The price was 12 dollars which is not that bad however the garden is a cage of about 80 metres by 40 metres with limited trees . I was shocked to see a... More

I toured the butterfly garden in January, 2015. It's just a stones throw from the cruise pier in St. Thomas. What a beautiful place! The person who tended the butterflies was so very knowledgeable and I learned so much that I had not know before. It was fascinating to see the butterflies land on her glasses, her nose and on...

I cannot say enough good things about Rochelle, who is so passionate about educating people about butterflies that she went out of her way to give us a private tour and lecture of the garden. I'm embarrassed to have realized that I knew so little about these beautiful and fascinating little creatures that we sometimes take for granted. Having the... More

I had been to a temporary butterfly garden previously at the Minnesota Zoo (Minnesota, USA) and butterflies were everywhere. I was expecting to see many butterflies at this permanent garden, but ended up having to look closely to see many of them (not necessarily a bad thing, but not what I was expecting). It's a small garden with walking paths... More

I toured the Butterfly Garden while docked in St. Thomas. It was really pretty and very informative but felt it was a bit pricey.

The butterflies are pretty and the guide is very nice, but I think the entrance price was too high for what they offer...there were like 4 different species only (just a couple of each)...it's a whole day access, but I think they should have more butterflies...anyway the ones they did have were beautiful and I took amazing pictures.
