We booked the Turtle River Falls and Aviary tour through Jaital tours. Our tour guide met us at the check-in location and after waiting about 20 minutes while they got everyone coordinated, we were on our way in a taxi. The gardens and falls are truly spectacular. We spent about 2 hours there. The guide gave us a history of the property, pointed out local plants, and points of interest along the falls. The aviary was a little chaotic for us. The birds come at you as soon as you walk in and we were not really prepared for that. The macaw is very calm. The smaller birds are all over the place, landing on you randomly. Thank goodness the chickens can’t fly and the male peacock was more interested in displaying his feathers. The photographer takes unposed pictures while you are in the aviary and sells all of the pictures on a disc. I got the disc because the pictures of me and our son freaking out were pretty funny. My husband was his usual calm self and got some really good pictures with the macaw. Overall, a fun excursion. Read Less
