  • Had a great experience visiting here! Definitely worth checking out! Great guiding and close encounters with cockroaches, butterfly and other insects. Very interesting and great fun for kids!
  • Absolutely marvelous! The tour starts with a insect lecture where you can fold some of them followed by a gorgeous stroll through multiple butterfly habitats and a little nature tour. Loved it!
