  • For people into Orchids incredible number of them...great to see them very much where many orchids come from !  more »
  • For those of us who think of the large flowers available in the supermarket, it will come as quite a shock as to what orchids really are. I learned a lot on the guided tour that took under an hour...  more »
  • Good tour in English with lots of information about orchids. Lots of different species to see and smell. The tour was about ~45 minutes long, but for the same price you can also go on your own and spend as long or as little as you like. Magnifying glasses were provided and were helpful to examine many of the smaller flowers.
  • Lovely little orchard garden with nice winding paths to meander to see the (mostly) miniscule orchids. Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly and you are free to walk around on your own before and after the guided tour. In an unexpected turn, the resident cat took care to make sure we were very happy and saw everything while the resident dog couldn't care less 😂😂
