Best zoo we have ever visited. Best layout, so you can actually see the most reclusive animals and the best selection of animals all gathered in one place. I'm talking about rhino, pandas, koalas, orang utang, polar bears, komodo dragons, Galapagos tortoise and a really good reptile house with many unexpected and beautiful creatures, such as neopolitan rattlesnakes and ming vipers.
It's a pretty long day, around 13 hours total, but well worth it.

We had such a fantastic day and the Zoo was amazing. The company picked us up from our hotel and dropped us off afterwards with no stress or hassle to us. Thanks for a great day.

A brilliant day out. We were collected from our hotel at the allocated time and dropped back afterwards. The day in the Zoo is down to individual choice. The driver gives a pick up time and place for collection at the end of the day. Our bus consisted of 2 groups one for the zoo and one for seaworld.

Firstly the local office telephone number printed on our voucher wasn't correct but they were able to give me the right number. VIP Tours office and transport centre was only a 2 minute walk so we didn't bother using the hotel pick-up although I think this is very useful if your hotel is farther away. We did get dropped off at our hotel afterwards tho which was great as it was a very long day.

The trip itself - transport was great and we got to the zoo about 11.15am with the bus returning for us at 6pm. The zoo was outstanding!! Polar bears and pandas were definitely the highlights for us (these are our favorites!). The enclosures all looked pretty big and the place was very clean, although of course animals do smell! We ate at Sydney's Hangout which was fine - a little on the expensive side, but no more than you'd expect at a zoo or theme park. Tour bus was great and covered some of the stuff we'd missed because of the steep terrain. Zoo map is helpful here as it tells you the level of the different walks - mild to steep terrain. A great day - don't forget your camera!
