This was a wonderful experience. Make sure you have good hiking shoes as you will be doing a lot of walking. There are plenty of resting spot to view the animal. Get a snak or just relax and enjoy the day.

The driver was knowlegeable. He was on time to pick us up at the Park. We saw a lot of Southern CA while heading over to get those who were at Legoland but not a big deal. The Safari Park is excellent. We had enough time there. The whole experience made for a great day. Thank you.

The experience at San Diego zoo Safari was excellent. The transport arrangement worked fine. But there was no add value other than provide the transport and drop and pick us up at the Safari park. For example they could have spoken about the highlights of the Safari park, the various options available there, like the balloon ride, different animal experiences, the various sections of the zoo etc. The travel time to the Park could have been utilized better.

The Safari Park trip went well. Transportation was on time both going and returning. We had a van going to the park and we returned in a party bus. The park was good, but the heat and the uphill climbing were gruesome.

Everything went well. The bus showed up on time. We reached the Safari Park a little after 10 a.m. but we had to leave by 4 p.m. instead of 5 p.m. It would have been better if we could stay till 5 p.m.

This tour was excellent and I would highly recommed to others. Transportation to the Safari park was convenient and on time. The driver was very gracious and dropped all of us to our hotel on the way back. It was a very pleasant and fun experience.

Overall, it went quite well. I was picked up at my hotel by a shuttle which took me to my bus. I did not expect that. The driver of the bus was an old hand at it. He was great at telling us the history of the area, but I did not need to know that properties are overpriced and that the farms are being pushed out of the way for development. That's more a political opinion than anything. The pickup and drop-off times were accurate. The driver was meticulous in ensuring that everyone who should be aboard was, and he would call dispatch when things were not well. All in all, it's a safe bet that I'd do it again.

The day was beautiful and the park was free and open, likely because it was during the week. It was a very relaxing trip from the time the bus picked us up until the time we left the park. The driver of our bus to the park was very personable as well.

So easy to arrange! Would have been an absolutely fantastic adventure if it had not rained! Can't control the weather but wished it had waited just one day! Would definitely recommend and will take again next time in San Diego!

The initial hotel pick up was 15 mins late. Then they transported us to the main hub to get on a larger bus. We waited for 30 mins to get on. (by this time the safari park was already open) THEN the pick up from the park was 20 mins late as well. Not very professional. But, way cheaper than a taxi

August 2012

Park was good not great. Zoo was much better.Transportation there was good. Return trip bus had no A/C and it was hot that day but they did supply water which helped. Had to make a stop at Lego Land to pick others up who got lost. Bus driver had to go and find them which waisted another 45 min. All in all it was OK but to us nothing to write home about.
