In booking this tour I didn't know that it was a VIP tour. There were two guides for the two of us.! In about two hours, we learned so much about Australian animals thanks to the back stage visit. The Sky Safary was on maintenance the day we came. We also enjoyed the birds show. Highly recommended tour.

Great small tour with backstage access to animals. Could use more animal exhibits near the end, but our family of two adults and two teenagers enjoyed it very much.

Superbe moment passé en compagnie des animaux, on a pût voir des koalas même un bébé, des wombats, des kangourous, des dragons, des serpents. On a également vu ou était préparé la nourriture pour les animaux. Pour ce tour on été accompagné de trois accompagnateurs sympathique. Ce tour en vaut la peine si on aime les animaux.

We really enjoyed our time at the zoo. The Sky Safari was not running the day we were there. They said the winds were too strong. We didn't think there was any wind. However, the behind-the-scenes tour was great. We got to stand inches from a koala, pet a kangaroo, and see the kitchen where they make some of the food. We got to go into some classrooms and pet a python and see some lizards and other things that were not part of the general zoo admission. The zoo is on the side of a hill, so make sure you bring comfortable shoes and know there's lots of walking! The view back to Sydney from the zoo is great too. Again, the Viator way was the best. We had our printed voucher, and the ticket booth accepted it easily and there were no issues.

Having a personal, behind the scenes talk with 2 guides was brilliant, especially being able to get really close to the koalas and kangaroos.

This tour had to be one of our highlights in Sydney. We had been to Taronga before but had never experienced it like this. It was a small group of six with two guides so we really had a great the "personal" touch. We got in behind the scenes to see where food was prepared and got "up close and personal" with many of the animals - koalas. Also had a chance to see a baby possum. It was so small it was in a sock. We would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who is into animals. It was WONDERFUL!!!
