Really wonderful experience, I was amazed and surprised by how close we were able to get to the animals. Our guide (Jenny) couldn't have been better-- incredibly personable, knowledgeable, great w/ the animals and skilled w/ a camera, too! (She took some really nice pics for me, and knew how to quickly maneuver around the animals to get the best shots and angles). Very highly recommended.Reviewed by: Diane D, March 2012
We had a chance to tour New Zealand and Australia and this was probably our favorite experience. The small group size is awesome (it feels like a personal tour). Lots of information and up close and personal experiences with the animals. Great for families or individuals. Can't recommend this enough! Definitely a must do.Reviewed by: Ursula C L, January 2012
Our tour guide was outstanding and gave us a great behind-the-scenes tour. Very informative and definitely worth it!Reviewed by: David D, January 2012
Fantastic tour/experience. Our tour guide was great and the behind-the-scene part of the tour was also a great experience. The best part was how intimate the tour was and any question we had, the zoo keeper/tour guide was able to answer. It was a wonderful tour and I'd highly recommend it to anyone.Reviewed by: Candice C, January 2012
We had the most incredible tour with a zookeeper at the Taronga Zoo. It was the highlight of our trip. We have been to the zoo before, but to be in a small group of eight, and have a real person who knows the animals tell you all about them was the kind of up close experience we were after.Reviewed by: Susan M, December 2011
The one-on-one tour with the senior zoo keeper (Robert) was one of the best experiences I have ever had. The "behind the scenes" and "up close" animal encounters were amazing. It was worth every penny spent to be able to photograph wildlife in this manner. The pictures taken will be cherished for a lifetime. I highly recommend this tour to anyone interested in learning about Australian animals and their habitat.
Great experience - would recommend to everyone.
Came back to the USA and checked into encounters at Brookfield Zoo.

Booking was easy, Taronga Zoo is very well located and can be reached via ferry vom Circular Quay every 15 mins. The Wild Australia Experience is a wonderful time where you can learn a lot about Australian animals and nature, the zookeepers are very friendly and well educated! We had the chance to feed some animals and to pet them - just amazing! I strongly recommend this tour to every visitor!Reviewed by: Jessica J, October 2011
Absolutely a must do. For my partner and myself the main reason going to Australia was to learn about their unique animals.
And on this tour with Gabe wow, what an awesome guide. I loved every minute of it!
Don't hesitate and book this tour, you will not be disappointed
