We did this activity out of season (January) which made visiting the park very pleasant. We were well taken care of. Our guide was friendly. Small downside: we had booked a tour in English and we were with a Spanish group. Our guide therefore spoke most of the time in Spanish.

The park is spectacular, it is well worth a visit. In addition to the animals, children really enjoy riding the cable car, from which there are great views and the exhibition of birds of prey. In addition, the guide's explanations are so pleasant and simple that they are easy to follow even for children. My 8-year-old daughter learned many things. Highly recommended.
