Owner description: 30 Species Of Butterflies Flutter Around This Magical Garden.
Reviewed May 10, 2012

unless you are studying the process of the butterfly this was a very boring tour. Saw the same thing for each species. I was expecting to be able to enjoy the butterfly but instead stopped at every plant to see the eggs and talked about host plants even recieved a story that sounded like a story to be told to a class of 1st graders my husband and I are 53 actually looking that part was so bad it was funny we still laugh and retell the story bottom line very expensive tour going through gecko tours. If you must see take a cab

If you're into butterflies this is the place to go. Lots of species to enjoy even for a neophyte like myself. I saw an European couple with some kids and it seemed like a good place to come if you have kids - the kids were competing to find out the different species. $7 seems a bit much though, but the tiny enclosed area for butterflies allows for some peace of mind and quietness away from the rumble of San Jose.

The garden was very nice, small. I went early in the morning, and the butterflies were calm and easy to spot. Very informative about the life cycle of a butterfly.
