We booked a behind the scenes tour at the San Diego Zoo called Elephant and Friends. This was a fabulous tour that not only included a look at the elephant enclosure from above the elephants while they were fed and groomed, but also allowed us to feed camels and giraffes. We also were able to skip the line to the pandas and view them from our own special area. The normal line at that time was an hour long. In addition, we viewed many other areas of the zoo, so I felt we had seen at least 80% of the zoo by the end of the tour. The tour lasted two hours and cost $79 each. Lisa, our guide, was excellent. She was very knowledgable and gave us great insight into animal behavior and care. In addition, the tour was conducted via extended "golf cart" limiting the tour to about 9 people. This a wonderful tour...you won't be disappointed.
