The toddlers and younger children all enjoyed seeing the monkeys up close. Very entertaining. Weather dependant - don't go if it rains.

Hi, we will be visiting in January with our then almost two-year-old son. Do I have to go on a tour? Don't know if a two year old will/can/wants to stick to a schedule lol. Can we move around freely, maybe after the tour? Cheers :)
