So pleased we booked the tour. Our driver/guide was friendly & knowledgeable. We wouldn’t have been able to see so much with it.

The Explorer Bus tour of the gardens was fantastic. The driver was very knowledgeable and we learnt a lot about the different sections of the gardens featuring plants and trees from different parts of the world. I would highly recommend it.
Great way to explore the gardens!

Tour was very informative - the guide should start a podcast! Great way to go around the garden and get a taster before setting off on foot. Would go again next time I visit the garden.
Great tour

Doing the 30 minute tram tour is the BEST way to familiarize yourself with the gardens, Our guide pointed out some really cool things along the way and now I have a plan of attack for when I walk in. Our guide from Guatemala was kind, patient, funny and super informative. I highly highly recommend doing this before you plan a large adventure inside the gardens, they are huge!
