Good for a wet day
Aug 2019 • Family
Found this through Tripadvisor.
The weather was pants so I wanted an indoor thing to do with the kids. I was impressed with this place. The place was educational as well as fun. The sensory interactive bits around the sight were quite unique.
If it’s raining and you have kids it’s a worth a visit.

Holiday 1 day visit

This zoo is definitely worth a visit. It is not cheap and cost £128 euros for a family of 4 (4 adults). It is 40 hectares of well thought out areas for the animals to call home. The enclosures are huge and the lions, tigers, Panthers were not pacing up and down. You need to get there for 9:00 am though and even then you probably wont get to see all and go to the displays it was exceptionally busy on Sunday when we visited. Once in you pay for nothing but food. You can take your own food (on their website it says you can't) but you need to eat and walk with it no picnic tables. We ate at the safari and cost €44 however was very nice. A really thoroughly enjoyable day.

Good Morning ! We think that you made a mistake. We are not a zoo or safari but we are an aquarium called "Grand Aquarium de Touraine". So we think that you visited an other park but make a mistake when you wrote your comment... Unfortunately, we can't answer at your comment. Don't hesitate to send to the right park. Have a good day !

Very interesting both for the kids and adults!

Very nice aquarium! Not the biggest one but with its own specialities. For example, it was the first time we saw big sheatfishes! The giant crabs are exciting! The kids get a "task to accomplish" throughout the visit - motivating them to pay attention to information around. In short - it was very interesting both for the kids and adults!

Loved it!!!
Dec 2018 • Friends
Visited on a quiet day in December, looks like you’re walking in to someone’s house but it’s awesome - interactive, educational, and a good way to spend a couple of hours. Very relaxing, loved the massive catfish. Worth a visit!!!

Awesome surprise in the middle of nowhere!
Dec 2017 • Family
We opted for the aquarium as th he weather was cold and we had young kids who were reluctant about visiting castles!! As in best option left and were very positively surprised!
We are from Sydney and have travelled in the states, Europe and have visited quite a few aquariums but I can tell you, this is by far one of the best aquarium we have ever been to!
Great displays, not overcrowded, very child-friendly and amazing species!
Please don’t miss!!!

Cruel upsetting exhibits and unhealthy animals
Aug 2017 • Family
Majority of animals in acceptable tanks but a large number with very clear illnesses even to our untrained eyes.

Giant catfish were amazing to witness, but information described a like of foliage and plants to hide in. Their tank was bare with nothing to do but swim in circles on the concrete floor. No plants available as in other tanks.

We left immediately after seeing the crocodile exhibits. 5 small animals piled on top of eachother in a take that they could not stand side by side in. Extremely small box with again no plants or anything for entertainment, just a platform.

Beautifully done
Aug 2017 • Family
Often you can rack up at these places and they are not up to much, this however was very different. Very well kept, lots of info in English too. Interactive as much as you could. Wide aisles so everyone could see. Good carpark. Plenty of variety a you could go back around if you wanted too if you had missed something. It was also nice to see that Dory had finally found Nemo.

Amazed what is here
Jul 2017 • Couples
From the outside it looks small and maybe not enough to do. You will be pleasantly surprised. There is so much to see and do, including extras for children to touch and see broadening their minds. The carp fish you can touch, so funny, they making a kissing sound when they touch you . Great to see so many fish and information about each and everyone. Well worth the money 14.00 euro per adult.

Dear visitor, Thank you for your pleasant comment about your visit at the Grand Aquarium de Touraine. It's seems to be a great family moment for you. Our aquarium is a place where adults and children can discover The Loire Valley differently as the usual castels.

My daughter loved it
Aug 2016 • Family
We had a pleasant afternoon here whilst staying in the vicinity. There were a wide variety of fish on display, including one of the biggest touching sections I've seen in an aquarium before - very tame and swimming up to your hands.

There was a small play tunnel and a wooden ship as you walked around - I'm not sure these were supposed to be the highlights, but we lost my daughter for a good 10-15 minutes on each activity!

Overall we were there for around 90 minutes. It's not particularly large for an aquarium, but nor is it particularly expensive compared to others we've been to in England / France.
