We boarded the "caterpillar bus" a lovely gentleman was our driver and tour guide . He had a lot of knowledge of not only the area but the trees and plants as well. He was able to answer our questions with ease. It was a bit chilly as we were the last tour of the day so we were offered blankets . A lovely way to spend time and see the gardens

Took the motorized train around this beautiful garden and learned about the trees and shrubs from all over the world. Very enjoyable. Also, the guide recommended the restaurant onsite that uses herbs from the garden. Enjoyed a delicious meal with great service.

We were fortunate enough to be staying in an AirBnB not far from the gardens - they are immaculately kept and a wonderful place to just wander, enjoying the variety of flora and fauna - definitely worth a visit.
