“Excellent and worth every Euro!!”
Reviewed December 23, 2012 via mobile

I have never seen a tiger so up close before, cable car was free and great city view and see all animals from the top. The dolphin and seal show was the best I've ever seen! True talent and amazing!!!

“Day out at the zoo!”
Reviewed December 21, 2012

Really didn't expect to enjoy this much, but feeling about ten years old I really did! Got quite close to a range of animals and saw some I'd never seen before. It was quiet when I was there and all the animals seems quite relaxed and settled. Always upsetting seeing big cats in smallish enclosures, but it was quite well done and seeing the keepers relate to the animals was quite a pleasure as they really seemed to care.

“Best zoo I have been to”
Reviewed December 21, 2012

I am not a zoo fanatic but Lisbon zoo exceeded expectations. There is a very good collection of animals spanning over a relatively large space. Do take the 15 minute cable car ride which is a great way to cover the zoo thoroughly with an aerial view.
We also found the seal and dolphin show very entertaining. Definitely recommend it and it's only 5 minutes from the underground/metro.

“Nice place for kids”
Reviewed December 4, 2012

If you are in lisbon with your kids than you should definetely take your time to visit here. Especially the dolphin show is very nice, if you do not consider those memals as prisoners.
