This trip was amazing and exceeded expectations. Steve was our guide and he went above and beyond to make our day as great as possible, giving us the best experience. The zoo is a must-do, and the best I have ever been to, so I would highly recommend this trip. Also want thank Steve again for his kind and accommodating nature.

The animal hospital was underwhelming with few animals being taken care of in it (a good sign for all the animals, sad for us not to see it in action) otherwise amazing. Our driver showed us where to do the koala cuddles and the best route through the zoo. The zoo is stunning and very much worth it. So nice not to have to worry about public transport or parking.

We took this tour in Dec, 2022 and it was truly amazing. First off, it was just two of us in a van and our driver and a guide Steve provided us with an unforgetful experience both on the road as well as in the Zoo. Steve picked us up from our hotel on time and was engaging in conversation with us throughout the drive to the Zoo, enlightening us with cultural and historical facts and events. He was very personable and even treated us with Pavlova desert once he learned that we did not have a chance to try it previously. Steve provided us with suggestions how to organize our time in the Zoo to make the most out of the experience there. He picked us up from the Zoo on time and again kept us entertained on our way back to the hotel. It happen to be my birthday and I wanted to personally thank Steve again making it so memorable. I would highly recommend both Steve and your company to all interested, you would not regret it.
