Really enjoyed ourselves. The only issue we had involved the keeper talks. We could not find the locations for them and could not easily locate a zoo employee to help. One of the maintenance staff tried to assist and another person talked to us about the alpacas- stating they had a staff meeting and there would be no talk that day. We appreciated her taking time with us to talk about the alpacas. Maybe there could be a way to let people know of the talk locations or any changes in the schedule.

Nice to skip the ticket purchase line though had to wait in line to enter the attraction. Another great thing was that we didn’t have to enter a time of arrival. Website wasn’t clear on those instructions but overall experience was great. No hiccups. Would recommend offering the website link for parking and aquarium show bookings once the city pass is purchased.

This was our first trip at Atlanta and I would highly recommend this tour. Our guide, Don and bus driver, Pam were Excellent! It was pouring down rain for the trip but I am so happy we made the tour. We viewed places we would Never have seen on our own. Loved it!!

This was an excellent tour. Thanks to our very knowledgeable tour guide, Emily! I learned a lot, and hope to repeat portions of the tour in the future, when federal buildings are open again.
