Another hit with the family booked with Viator. The behind the scenes tour was well worth the extra money!
The zoo keeper was just fantastic with great photo ops and also very close up with the animals.
I love animals and they were just so good.
What a fantastic zoo! The Wild Australia Experience is like no other with a very knowledgeable staff that educates you of the animals and their diets. You go behind the scenes to visit with the animals as well as visit the kitchen where they prepare all the animals food. It really is a must do at the zoo!
THIS WAS GREAT!
Definitely nice to be away from the crowds- There were about 6 of us in our group. I was a little disappointed that we couldn't touch or hold the koalas, but, they told us that they carry human STD's so that's a good reason!!!! Still, so wonderful to be inches from their furry faces! I loved it.
Loved this trip! It was a pretty cold and rainy day and I almost backed out to stay home - so glad I didn't. The guide was great and I've never had a zoo trip like this. I think it'd be great for any age. Also probably one of the better priced tours you can do in Sydney when you factor in the fact it includes your all-day zoo ticket, entrance by sky lift, coffee, and all the behind the scenes tours/photos.
I had a great time on the tour - the zookeeper was very knowledgeable and friendly and I learned a lot.
This activity is a must if you are in Sydney. It was a real treat to see the animals close up, and to feed a couple of them as well was an extra bonus !
This tour was amazing and worth every penny. Fun and informative and you get to get up close and personal with the animals. Also recommend the giraffe experience to feed them.
Our tour guide, Tim, made the tour of Taronga Zoo very interesting and exciting. His ability to engage all of us, from ages 11 to 52, was remarkable. His first hand knowledge of the history of the zoo and the animals was a bonus for us. We were able to get close to many of the animals and feed them! My children are still talking about our visit as the highlight of our trip to Australia.
What a wonderful morning we had at the Taronga Zoo! We got to be up close and personal with a kolala, a wallaby, an echidna, a glider, a platypus, and a bilby. We also toured the inner workings of the zoo. Wonderful, enthusiastic keeper guides. A once in a lifetime experience. Highly recommended. Well worth the expense.
Excellent tour with a very knowledgable zoo keeper. Very much enjoyed the behind the scenes look at how a zoo operates and to learn heaps about the animals.
i have sent a email direct to the zoo to let them know this experience was excellent thank you
This was absolutely amazing. Our zookeeper was very pleasant, intelligent and took a personal interest in each of the 8 people on this tour!! We were behind the scenes with koalas, wallabies and Gussie the owl.
Definitely worth the price we paid. What an adventure!!!
Great experience and appreciate the close encounters to Australian wild life. The tour guide did a good job, she was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Would highly recommend to visitors.
The personal behind the scenes tour was amazing. We had a zookeeper not just a tour guide who takes great pride in the animals. We got to see behind the scenes with the platypus, bilby, koalas, kangaroos and wallabyes, emus, achidnas, quokkas, possums and feather tail gliders. It was amazing.
It was a very wonderful opportunity to know more about the wild species from Australia, if you are coming from the other side of the world, this tour is the best choice to visit the Taronga Zoo. Do not forget to visit the other attractions of the zoo, it is a wonderful place, I love it!!!!!
This is a definite must do while in Sydney, and a full day is needed to make sure you get round the whole zoo. The Wild Australia Experience was fantastic, with the Guide taking you behind the scenes and telling you so much info.
We were very lucky! Our guide, Robert, was a true expert. We learned so much in the two hours, and he is especially gifted at getting the animals to come out and meet the small group. Had an absolute blast! Well worth the money!
An amazing experience. We not only were behind-the-scenes we had the opportunity to hold and feed several animals that were not on display. Our guide was one of the zookeepers and he was an excellent guide - very knowledgeable and completely patient about answering the myriad of questions from the group. The group was very small.
Only negative was the description of the tour on the site was that it was 4 hours long in actuality was 2. According to the zoo 2 hours was the correct length. Fortunately we still felt we got our money's worth.
Overall I highly recommend this to anyone and would go again as every tour will be slightly different.
The best way to meet and even hold/touch Australia's wildlife. Sean was our tour leader and he was extremely informative and provided us with lots of cool facts! I had so much fun I stayed to do the little penguin experience...also TOTALLY worth it!
