Great visit

Great work and interesting boat trip. It was raining a lot and that did detract from the experience but nothing anyone can do about the weather.

Tiring but very excellent walk! We love it!

My husband and I loved this walk. It was tiring as we didn't really prepare ourselves this kind of walk but we made it. Took lots of photos and it was really lovely. Unfortunately, we didn't get to go for the boat ride because it was not working. Instead of having a refund, we asked for another booking. Thank You Lord for such a great creation You've made.

It was a fantastic walk!

Seeing God's creation and walking into it relieves stress from city life. We had this walk last January and again this February. We will never get tired of going there especially with new friends and family.
