“Great place for kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2012

It's a nice place to take the kids for educational tour. Nothing fancy except the price of the food. That's my only complaint. The bus tour was very nice and comfortable if you have young kids and elderly on wheelchair as it basically went around the whole zoo and we basically saw them all.

“Great place but not in the rain”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2012

The zoo is such an awesome place to visit but it was pouring rain when we went and it was hard to fine a place to eat that had indoor seating. Also a lot of the coffee shops were closed because of the rain.

“The Best I have ever seen!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2012

Have been to the zoo many times; but always see something different and enjoy it. The bus tour is well worth the price, especially for senior citizens who can't do a lot of walking. The shows are free and worth seeing.

“Best Zoo in the World”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2012

Everybody that goes to SD should have to go to the zoo. You don't have to have kids to go to the zoo. In fact, it is better without the kids. This zoo has the best bird selection of any place in the world.

“Must see during your lifetime!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2012

I have been to many zoo's in the USA but the San Diego Zoo if the best. The layout and landscape is so beautiful. I really just enjoyed the walking around very much. They had places to eat and ice cream cones. The animal were wonderful to watch and the grand children liked watching them in some of their habitat. I will go back to this zoo.
