Did our second Walking with Lemurs tour here this past weekend...had to come back for more! We visited with three types of lemurs, red ruffed, ringtail and sifaka. It is an amazing up close and personal tour that allows for great pictures and videos! Our guide Megan and lemur keeper Matt were awesome...so knowledgeable and friendly. For the lemur-obsessed, this trip is a must!

What a great experience! While the center itself may be a bit awkward to find, my GPS was accurate. If you drive yourself, there is ample parking. Make sure you come property dressed for the weather. If it's raining, you might get wet and muddy. The tours were prompt and informative. Everyone that worked there was friendly and knowledgeable. They have a plethora of lemurs which is a true treat in North America! A definite must-stop if you're in the area.

Amazing place to learn about lemurs and the wonderful research being done to help them.

My family had a wonderful time! The tour guide was knowledgeable and the tour was interesting. Regarding some of the negative reviews: This is not a zoo, it is a research facility that offers tours to the public.

The tour and guides were great. The gift shop cashier was not polite with me and my family. Overall, the experience was great and I'm disappointed in the interaction with this one individual.
