Kids had a great experience and loved the feeding of the monkeys. It is worth spending the extra to feed the monkeys. The place is well run and a lovely spot for the monkeys to live. Lots of laughs!

This place is pretty expensive for a one hour tour. That said, the kids loved geeting up close and personal with the monkeys and so, as a one off, its worth a visit. The guide was very friendly.
