tour bus was great showed a great portion of the zoo very informative
good value for money hotel
close to train station and cbd and seaworld, zoo etc
free shuttle to attractions and airport and train was great and on time when they said it would be
inhouse restaurant was a little limited in choice and a little pricey but other than that a good place to stay with young kids/family
would stay again
Booking through Viator was easy, vouchers were accepted by the zoo with no problem. A lovely place to spend a day
This card was a good value! It includes the city tour of San Diego, admission to the Zoo, as well as admission into various museums. Also, if you decide to go to L.A., there are a couple of tours there that are included with this card too. Finally, keep in mind that admission into Sea World is only included on the 3 day or more pass.
As always, our Viator tour was awesome and plan to go back next year and take advantage of the Zoo/Safari Park pkg. Always recommend Viator to our traveling friends!
What a handy, money-saving card! For less than $100 it felt like we had the freedom of San Diego. The card gained us free entry to tonnes of different attractions including the Zoo, Whaley House and USS Midway. We also took the ferry to Coronado and walked to the beautiful beach there. The card is easy to use, just hand it to the ticket cashier and they will swipe and return it to you - no hassles, no queuing and no money required!
Taking the tour helped to determine what to see because it was warm and several animals were either inside or sleep. Additionaly, the zoo is very hilly, so using the safari tram worked well as well. The best show was the in the Manderina Rain Forest. A must see.
I mad the mistake of not reading this up correctly. NOTE: Seaworld is only included for the 3 day pass or more! We used this for San Diego zoo, which included the tour bus, express bus and sky tours which were great. We also visited legoland which was fun. Will read it up more carefully next time.
I had a great time at the zoo! We were greeted right away by a friendly worker who advised that since it was our first time at the zoo, we should take the narrated bus tour. This was a great tip! We were able to see most of the exhibits then decide which critters we wanted to revisit on foot. The cuddly koalas were my favorite!
We had a great time at the San Diego Zoo. The buses arrived at the exact scheduled time, picking us up from, and dropping us off, at our hotel. The driver was polite and knowledgeable about the area, regarding questions specific to San Diego.
San Diego Zoo was disappointing. We have been to many zoo's in our time. Tarongo Zoo in Sydney, Singapore Zoo and Australia Zoo are much more diverse and pituresque. We did not even stay for the full day we were so unimpressed.
A must when in San Diego. Zoo is excellent.Pick up and drop off ... no problems.
We enjoyed our visit to the Zoo. It was nice to be able to get relatively close to the animals. The pandas were enchanting. Lunch could have been better, but other than that, it was a good day.
Great day out, we spent a full day at the zoo and enjoyed every minute of it.

The San Diego Zoo is definitely a place where you can spend an entire day. We make sure that we visit it every time that we stay in San Diego. Great for kids of all ages!
