  • Lovely place. A lot of turtles to watch and some signs to find out more about the different types. It looks like they are taken really good care of. The caretakes are also really nice and are ready to answer all kinds of questions. There was even a speech held by someone about turtles.
  • Fantastic visit!! Every single person was incredibly friendly and very knowledgeable. The guided visit was particularly worthwhile. My son is autistic with a special interest in tortoises and they made a particular effort for him. We will definitely be back in the future 😊
