We visited for my daughter's birthday and did the private pinz tour. Our driver/guide Nicole was terrific. She listened and answered my daughter's many questions about all of the animals. She even made one last stop by the giraffes for my daughter. It was a wonderful experience that we won't soon forget. The private tour was worth the extra money.... More

My family and I went to this incredible place! It's amazing. The animals come right up to the wagon they drive you in. This place is a great excursion for kids and adults together.

Excellent afternoon with a drive to Folsom and visit to the Global Wildlife Center. Sign up for a tour with hordes of other people's kids or you book a private Pinz tour which means you pay more but it your private vehicle driven by a guide who can answer your questions and get you up close to all of the...

This is such a great place! We were the only ones so we got upgraded to a private tour. Took us off the beaten path so we could see and feed even more animals. We. Ought a bag of food and I think this is the perfect size. The two of us emptied the bag by the end of the... More

This place is great to visit with your kids. We had so much fun feeding the animals that the kids wanted to do the tour again. We were fortunate enough to even get to feed the giraffe's out of our hand near the beginning of our tour. You won't be disappointed with a trip here.

I understand it's hard for the driver to see behind but the wagons need to prevent animals going underneath. Deer was run over and not a single explanation was given. Over all this place is nice but the experience of seeing a deer run over by a wagon was not at all what I had planned.

It is interesting to see once, I probably wouldn't go back for seconds, Not a hugh assortment but a good mix of animals.

We are LA residents who live near here. My mom came to visit, so we decided to do this and take a private tour (2 adults, a senior, and a teenager). It was very cool. Being able to pet a giraffe, have a camel reach their head into your lap, feed a Chinese bull with a 5 ft wide horn... More

If you love animals, this is the place to be. We took the private tour, which I highly recommend. You get much more one on one time with the animals.The guide was extremely knowledgeable, and you could tell she cared about them.She was even telling us about the female camel's attitude.There were so many different kinds of deer, elk, buffalo,...
