Had the most lovely time touring this garden with Melanie. She was extremely knowledgable about this species, how they pollenate and interact with other plants and animals, and even indulged our questions about keeping our orchids at home alive. The garden is not massive, but we could have spent another hour there admiring the beautiful plants after learning so much about them. Highly recommend this tour for a more laid back day during your travels. They also sell jewelry made of real orchids set in resin, absolutely stunning and such a special souvenir!
Super nice and very knowledgeable guide. Took an hour to go through the place and we learned a lot. Would recommend it if you have some time to spend and don't know what to do. If it's raining for instance.
