We went in August an were expecting the park to be heaving but it was really quiet. No issues getting on any of the rides we wanted and no long queues which was brilliant. We bought the 2 Park ticket for Mundomar & Terra Metica. Was brilliant value for money paid @ £45 each but you would be lucky to get entry to 1 theme Park at home for that. Sadly the huge wooden roller coaster that dominates Terra Metica that we were really looking forward to is no longer working due to age and being too dangerous. It looks absolutely awesome, I bet it was amazing in its day. There were some lovely shows on and plenty of places to rest. I would definitely go again. As for Mondomar this was our 2nd visit as we loved it 1st time and it didn't disappoint. The experiences where you can hold and feed the animals are brilliant. An all included in the price. Love the dolphin show and our son always loves to gave the picture with them after. The photos are reasonable a fraction of what parks usually charge

Well arranged. Everything was properly confirmed by email. The bus was right on time, picked up even more people who had booked through the hotel reception and therefore we almost passed our hotel again. Got off on the way back there instead of at the pick-up location that was a 20-minute walk away. No problem. Nice tour guide. The town and the falls were nice but not spectacular. All in all had a whole day for a good price. Nice incidental; the route to both locations is beautiful through the interior, so you can see some of the surroundings.

Absolutely amazing experience we done the walking tour plus football stadium and my other sons done the aquarium. We all had a fantastic day .

Great trip really enjoyed all the places we visited. Children loved it would recommend. Tour guide lovely and very helpful .

Well organised, However, does take a while to get out of benidorm and on the road due to pick ups
