We went for an hour long walk through the garden and enjoyed ourselves a lot. Many impressive plants and trees, amongst them the wonderful Victoria Waterlillies as well as the Lotus flowers. Worth a visit, go early in the morning to avoid the worst heat - the garden is very humid.

Parking is free, even if there's a man asking for money. We hired one of the official guides waiting after you buy tickets. She spoke English, French and Italian at least! She was very competent and fun, we saw, touched and smelled beautiful trees, flowers and leaves.

We were lucky enough to get there early to avoid the crush 9am and didn't take a guide as we were pushed for time but I have heard the guides are really worth getting. Map was easy to follow and we really loved it.

There was nothing outstanding about our visit, lush gardens with little colour, other than green, and a few giant tortoises in a fenced off area. For a real Tortoise experience, La Vanille on the south coast is an absolute must.

There’s the old house you can walk around, though it’s full of nesting pigeons that naturally have left their mark (everywhere!) and not really much else to see

Well worth a visit if you like gardens or tropical plants. The giant water lilies are famous but there are also plenty of tropical plants and trees to see. The gardens are very manageable size for walking around in a couple of hours and are not expensive to get in. Don't expect Wisley - there are not a lot of flowers - but do expect interesting tropical and sub tropical plants including an interesting medicinal plants section. Unfortunately the spice plants section is fenced off so you can only see from behind the barrier.
