This is the nicest zoo I have ever been too. I felt like I was in a disney park.
Nice zoo - booking on Viatour allowed me to use a discount and save some money, which was nice because the tickets are expensive. Leave plenty of time to explore!
If you like animals this is the place to go. We spent about 5 hours there and only really scratched the surface. I would recommend that you take the bus around the Zoo first so you can see where you want to go. The Pandas are a must see so are the big cats. All sorts of things for kids to do as well in the childrens zoo.
Not really a tour but we were able to get right into zoo which was really good!
Best zoo ever! So many animals not fond in other zoos. And, so lucky my timing was right because I got to see lots.of babies; animals that is.
The zoo was amazing!! With our pass we were able to enjoy everything that they had to offer.
The zoo was great, a good representation of our wild animals. Fairly easy to get around and well laid out. Food and drink was expensive but what are you going to do? The tickets were reasonably priced and parking was free unlike Seaworld! I would definitely go back again.

Loved the zoo! Great weather on 2/18/16. One day was enough for my husband and I to see everything we wanted. Especially loved seeing the pandas, koalas, and polar bear.
We loved San Diego Zoo and Safari Park and had a very close encounter with the 2 Pandas.
I only booked admission tickets for the zoo with Viator so can't comment on the whole tour. There were no issues with exchanging the Viator voucher at the zoo entrance and we had a great day at the zoo.
Loved the zoo! This was one of the highlights of our California vacation. My daughter rated it her favorite of the whole trip!
I dislike animals in captivity, but the newer enclosures were fantastic. As everyone else has said get the round trip bus tour first and then use the hop on hop off Kangaroo bus together with the escalators to minimise steep uphill climbs
We had a wonderful time. It was so beautiful there and so clean. everyone that works there is so helpful. you need more that one day. there is a lot of walking and we got wore out , so we didn't get to see everything. I was so happy we got to see the beautiful grounds from the gondola ride.
We were glad to take a bus scenic tour since the park is so huge, and we only allotted half a day's time for it. That way, we could choose which areas we wanted to concentrate on. We were fortunate enough to see a couple koalas awake and eating since they're only awake one hour a day!!
This is my third time at the zoo and it was just as great as the first time. There is so much to see and learn about. The highlight of our trip were the koalas, who are absolutely adorable. I took my family from Argentina and they loved it. The San Diego zoo is a guaranteed great outing for children and adults
San Diego Zoo was beautiful. I couldn't believe how many different animals they have. It was great to show my son what wonderful work they do and how it impacts the planet. Definitely the highlight of our trip.
Very fun day at the Zoo, with a large variety of beautiful animals in beautiful settings with many types of plants and trees. The bus tour gives a great overview and a good way to get around this very large zoo. There is also a skyride which is fun to see the animals from above. The 4 D theaters are a fun activity for kids and adults also. There is also a fun children's petting zoo and playground. We spent all day there and saw most of it.
I had a great time at the San Diego Zoo! GET THERE EARLY TO FIND A PARKING SPOT. The Pandas were my favorite exhibit and I wish I would have gotten a chance to see the Safari Park but didn't have a chance to do it all in one day - definitely a two day adventure.
