  • Very interesting visit. One can get within a metre of the monkeys. Good for young children. Value for money - children under five are free

  • A really nice place where you can walk among the monkeys, they will wander around you and sit nearby, kids loved it. Only things against it are on a hot day there is very little shade so take plenty of water with you, hats, suncream etc, also it isn't as big as I expected, but still if you like monkeys and especially if you have kids you will probably love it.
  • Was a wonderful close encounter with macaques, watched young monkeys playing together, mother caring for her 1 month old, and social interaction. Beautiful views over Rocamadour also.
