This was the first time I've been in a real rainforest. It even rained a bit on our trip, but there are umbrellas available. The hosts were friendly providing everyone with hot tea and cookies after our 15 minute walk through the rain forest garden.

The drive through the forrest was nice, the view from the top was pretty but that was literally "it". Very small attraction.

We had a great time at the rain forest. Jeff and his wife are excellent hosts. They provided information, umbrellas,.snacks, and a.hot drink. The scenery was beautiful and the walk wasn't too long or strenuous.

Interesting stop on tour run by husband and wife. Short walk on a trail and then a presentation with tea and cookies. I had a scooter and it is all very accessible.

A small piece of rainforest with an interpretive trail marked with current blooming plants. The couple that owns and runs this are very knowledgeable and passionate about the area and rain forest. Nice educational stop while in the area.
