We had a great time visiting the Frog Sanctuary. Our tour guide, Davey, was lovely and very informative. We were able to see all the frogs as we did the nightime and daytime tours. A great experience!

Had a brilliant time looking for all the frogs in the very well kept terrariums, with help, jokes and loads of interesting information from Jose the manager. Kids and adults thought it was great - would thoroughly recommend a day or night visit.

We came here because we didn’t really expect to see many of these frogs in their natural environment and to be honest we were pleasantly surprised how much we enjoyed ourselves. Our young guide was excellent giving us a really educational and fun tour. We...More
