I was one of two travellers on this trip. Jay was able to tailor to our needs and requests which resulted in an excellent personalised tour. William Ricketts Sanctuary was a fabulous experience and Jay's knowledge was excellent. The time spent there is really up to the travellers and we spent an amazing 3 hours because there was so much to learn and absorb. I highly recommend a visit to this amazing place. The sculptures are excellent and tell a fascinating story. We also had a fabulous lunch!

It was a fantastic tour. The William Ricket Sanctuary is amazing, would love to go again. Our walk in the cool tempered rainforest was refreshing and we saw some huge trees. Jay our guide was very knowledgeable and we were able to understand the story behind the sanctuary very well!

Highly recommended!
