Visited these gardens between leaving the ship and catching a flight home. Was pleasantly surprised by how much we enjoyed the trip. Guide was very good, and there was plenty to see for a couple of hours. Gardens are beautiful and the animals well looked after.

"Visit if in the Area"

When we visited in February, all services were still available. I hope they will be in the future. We did a guided walking tour with a very enthusiastic and knowledgeable long-time volunteer; the history of the facility and its plants is fascinating. We also did a tram tour that explained areas of the gardens not quite as accessible on foot--and it had a hop-on, hop-off feature that let passengers explore some of the areas farther from the entrance and animals and birds. There are plenty of animal and bird exhibits to entertain and educate children. It's a very good excursion if you are looking for something to do in the area, but perhaps not worth a special trip from a long distance.

"A bit disappointed we were not with the SPECIAL group and got the trolley tour"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed March 16, 2020
My wife and I had a great time. She was looking forward to this stop on our three-week RV trip. Since we have a Service Dog, we arrived just as the gates opened with the plan to do the self-walking tour, then the trolley tour and after my wife would visit the aviary. After paying full price for the tickets, we were told the trolley tours were cancelled due to the virus. Some what disappointed, but we understood. So, we set off on the self-guided walking tour and were having a great time when surprise surprise, here comes a trolley loaded to the gills with folks. My wife gave me one of those looks and set off after the trolley. I sat on a nearby bench to await the aftermath of the explosion I knew was to come. After about 10-mins my wife appears with a park employee in tow. Apparently, the trolley tours are cancelled, unless you happen to me a guest on one of the cruise ships that are docked and have cancelled their sailings. This made absolutely NO SENSE; why would you allow passengers off a cruise ship to take the trolley tour and not walk in park guests? Oh, the answer is $$$$$$$; the Flamingo Garden tour is part of a package each cruise ship guest paid for. Now we who walked into the park and paid the posted price are NOT given the tour. What we should have done was demanded a refund, but to be honest my wife really enjoyed seeing the flamingos up close so she wasn't completely heart broken about missing the trolley tour but she made sure to fill out the FEEDBACK card offered.

We loved the relaxed environment of Flamingo Gardens. Of course, the flamingos are great, but we also enjoyed the Wildlife Encounter, and walking round the exhibits. The staff are all knowledgeable and helpful. It’s a lovely haven of tranquility, and most u expected. The tram ride was interesting, and our deliver so knowledgeable about all the plant life In the park. They are a non for profit organisation, and do a great job.
