Very enjoyable excursion with a guife that was simply terrific. She knew everything about everything! Totally captivating. The gardens were beautiful and the suspension bridge was pretty cool. Would recommend if you have about 2 hours to spare.

Anyone who enjoys beautiful gardens should visit here. Unfortunately it was raining during our visit so we probably missed out on some things - however, it was worth getting wet for! Beautifully laid out and perfectly maintained. We recommend a visit here.
