The Zoo itself is excellent but it goes to a whole new level with the behind the scenes tour. We had an incredible time feeding the animals and also seeing what they are fed. Our guide, Paul, was extremely knowledgeable and I would heartily recommend this tour.
It was an amazing way to really experience first hand with all the different animals and the staff was extremely knowledgable
Tim out guide was awesome all the way through. Professional, knowledgable and entertaining. The behind scenes is the way to go. You are up and close with the koalas and kangaroo. I would do it again.
Paul, the zookeeper of 32 years was awesome great tour memorable!
All the animals especially the kangaroos, Koalas and bilby's and the flying squirrels were so cute!
This was one of the highlights of my trip to Sydney. The zookeeper was friendly and knowledgable, as part of our tour we had an opportunity to see many of the Australian native animals up close and personal. The koalas were my favorite! The Taronga Zoo is a must see and this tour is the cherry on top.
Our tour guide, Rob, was absolutely fantastic. we were allowed into enclosures and up really close to the animals. we got to stroke wallabies and feed Koalas. The tour took you around the animals native to Australia so there is still plenty to see afterwards.Afternoon tea was a muffin and a drink, great day out!
Great tour, with awesome behind the scenes activities (food prep for animals etc..) The guide also makes 100% sure you see the Animals you have come to see in Australia. You also get to bypass lines and special access to animals.
The entire experience was FANTASTIC! It was great to go behind the scenes and see how the animals were taken care of. I got to pet an echidna, and a honey-glider licked my finger. How can you beat that?
Our guide was Tim and he was a very interesting and enthusiastic behind the scenes guide. We were fortunate on our visit up close and personal with a Koala to have her with her baby as well and she didn't mind at all that we took dozens of pictures, touched her gently. We could pet kangaroos and echidnas, got great pics of the hairy nosed Wombat and a slightly 'kooky platypus'. We were shown the kitchen with people preparing the measured meals for the critters. It was my 2nd excursion in Sydney and I loved it. Michele F
This tour was awesome, well worth the money. There were 6 adults and 1 child in our group and our guide was a very energetic zoo keeper, Jenny. The tour was almost all behind the scenes in areas the public is not allowed. We were able to touch Echidna, Wallaby, feed an owl, hold a feather tailed glider, hang out in the koala area and get great pics. We had the 2pm tour and I wish we had arrived earlier to see more of the Zoo prior to our tour as it closes at 5pm.
Great experience. Small group. You really get to see and learn a lot about the animals of Australia. Even saw a koala Joey up close and personal!
Excellent tour; very passionate and knowledgeable zoo keeper; beautiful views.
