superb idea, you get behind the scenes, can pet and feed a wallaby, feed a koala, get very close up to the unusual animals of Australia, and see what they do with them. Natalie was our zookeeper guide, she was very pleasant and knowledgeable. Plus, take the ferry over to the zoo and get a cheap harbor cruise with great views of the Opera House and bridge. Strongly recommend this tour, takes about 2 hours or so. Well worth it.

This was truly the best thing we could have done in Sydney. Everyone should see this zoo, it is Great. The zoologist that did our tour was super sweet and caring. The weather was wonderful and the time went by so quickly the day was over befor we realized it.

We spent Christmas Day with Earl the kangaroo. Definitely the highlight of the trip. The animals are all well cared for and the employees really seem to like their jobs. Incredible access into several exhibits and even the kitchen where the animals meals were prepared.

This was a fabulous tour, and a great day out in Sydney. The guide was very informative about the animals, which a few we were able to feed and pet. It was an awesome experience, and I was very thankful to have signed up for this tour.

Amazing tour! Our guide Robert was phenomenal and gave us so much information during our visit. He was very funny and taught us a lot about all the different animals and made the whole experience just so much fun. The zoo itself is beautiful and I loved that we took a ferry to get to the entrance. The view is picture perfect and you san see everything from the harbor to the bridge to the opera house. I was so glad that I was finally able to cross off meeting a koala from my bucket list. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone whole would like to learn about the animals from a higher level!

The behind the scenes zoo tour was completely worth this ticket price. We were able to get up close with the koalas and hands on many of the native Australian animals. A cable car ride is included with the ticket price which takes you directly to the ferry to make your way quickly back to the Sydney harbor. Beautiful and well taken care of zoo. The zoo can easily be seen during the day and still have your evening free to book another tour.

Wow!!!! This is a wonderful opportunity like no other to be exposed to the behind the scenes of a world-class zoo. The tour began by taking a Sky Tram up the hill to the start of the tour and top of the zoo - what a great view of the zoo and its animals from the sky! The zoo keepers and guides were knowledgeable, professional and answered all of our questions regarding the zoo, the animals, and their care. We fed the kangaroos and wallabies. The wallabies were very human-friendly and we were able to pet them while we fed them. We spent time up close and personal with the koala bears - we even had photo opportunities. The group also visited the inner sanctum of the zoo kitchen, where we learned about food sources and preparation. We even participated in putting some of the meals together - I received a handful of live worms - with eyes closed - that are part of the Bilbie diet. We then visited the Nocturnal House and met a couple of Bilbies who were anxiously awaiting their meal. We also spent time with a platypus - a most unusual mammal with venom secreting glands. We were treated to tea and scones, and had the rest of the day to explore the rest of the zoo. This experience is one I will cherish always, as I had the opportunity to experience these animals and their surroundings like never before and likely, never again.

Our family had an amazing Wild Australia Experience. We enjoyed our enthusiastic tour guide, Natalie, who gave us a fun and insightful tour. We got up close pictures with a Koala, Wallaby, and assorted other animals. We got to feed and pet a Wallaby. This was a totally worthwhile tour- a must do.

AMAZING,
This is a must do for the solo traveler like me, couples, and families with well behaved children. Its not often you get to see the inner workings of a zoo and this gives you a small sneak peek. Our zookeeper guide was amazing as well. She was fun, friendly and very informative.

We family with young child had a fantastic behind the scenes tour with Vanessa. We fed various creatures and it was an educational experience to learn how the zoo participates in conservation. The tour was of about 2 hours and ended with a snack and drink in the lovely View restaurant, We also recommend the seal show and bird show at the zoo which are also done in collaboration with the animals. Vanessa was lovely with our 8 year old. Thank you!

Great experience! To make the most of this we started our day by taking an early ferry from Circular Quay, then walking the zoo ourselves and spending as much time as we wanted in each area. Our guided tour began at 2:00 p.m. and Lisa, our Zookeeper Guide, was outstanding. Her knowledge of the species and her confidence in handling the individual animals made it a special experience for us. We were able to feed, pet and learn about many different Australian animals. We highly recommend this tour!

On a recent trip to Sydney, I booked this private tour of native Australian animals at Taronga Zoo. I'm not really a zoo person, but wanted to give this a try as these are not animals you see at every other zoo. My tour guide was Nat, and she was great! I got behind the scenes look at caring for the animals, and was even able to feed and hold some!

I highly recommend this tour for anyone who wants a more in depth experience...even if you don't normally like or go to zoos! I loved it, and would do it again. :

This tour was fantastic. You get a private tour from a zoo keeper and have access to all of Australia's native animals. From feeding the kangaroos to being up close to the koalas no touching and wallabes. Go behind the scenes to see how and what they are fed. The groups are small so all questions can be asked and answered.

The behind the scenes tour at Taronga Zoo was an amazing experience. The zookeeper, Becky, was knowledgeable and delightful. We not only fed wallabys but going into animal enclosures, feeding animals, and holding some were beyond our expectations. We learned about native Australian animals and some that are endangered and why. Becky's passion for animals was evident. If you enjoy animals then this is your tour!

The tour was very interesting and the guide for the tour was excellent. We were taken into areas where we could feed some of the animals. We were in the cage with the koalas, but you are not permitted to touch them. It is not a cheap tour, but the experience made it worthwhile.
