The Thirty Minute tour was very interesting. Our guide was very knowledgeable and pointed out the many tiny orchids growing in the garden. Small garden and easy to walk through.

We paid for the guided tour which is well worth it as we would not have seen the smallest of the small gorgeous orchids!

The garden tour was enjoyable even on a rainy day. Some of it was in greenhouses and out of the rain. The tour guide was bilingual and knowlegeable. The gardens are small and easily walkable. It is a level walking tour, not a hiking tour.

This was such a beautiful place to visit. We had a private guide and learned things about orchids that we never even thought about. Definitely worth the visit. Got some awesome pics of rare orchids in bloom!

It may be a small place, but hides an incredible collection of native Orchids, owner Alvaro is very kind, and patient to explain every flower.

Ticket includes a guided tour around the garden. As someone who knew very little about orchids, I found this tour very informative and interesting. Most of the flowers in bloom were very small and I doubt I would have noticed them at all if they...More

Lovely little garden and knowledgeable guide. Learnt the difference between Walmart hybrid orchids and the more beautiful subtler natual varieties. Lovely scents and some great names too!
