My 18 year old daughter and I went to the zoo on 7/8/2007. It was awesome. We bought the regular admission ticket (no bus or tram ride...we chose to walk and it was great). We abso...

San Diego Zoo - user review
There is some walking involved with any zoo visit, but this one really covers some ground. It is worth it, however, to see the range of animals at the park. You get a chance here to see animals that you may never see again in you lifetime, like the Giant Panda. If you get tired just catch a bus tour...

Willing to return!!!! - user review
I could not believe the change. The first time I was at the zoo was in 1974 and I was not at all impressed. We went in March 2007 for our grandsons 4th birthday and I was s...

A must-see in San Diego - user review
Following other people's advice, we arrived first thing in the morning and hopped aboard the guided bus tour. This was a great way to see the majority of the park. And it's worth the l...

The San Diego Zoo, sister city to the Melbourne Zoo. When we got there, I realised why - they both look almost exactly the same. Except, of course, that the San Diego Zoo was much, much larger. First we went on the bus, to get a tour of the zoo. It was quite good, and when we got to the polar bear e...

Zoo - user review
Ticket prices can be cheaper if you know someone who works on a military base and can get you good priced tickets. Either way it's worth it. I would suggest not spending the extra money for the Skyfari as it passes over much of the zoo that is being redone, so all you see is construction. The tour b...

Spend the extra dollars to take the bus tour and the Sky Safari, it's worth the money! Our daughter loved the sky safari (similiar to a gondola) that takes you from one end of the zoo to the other. The exhibits were great, like you would expect. The food was good, the staff was very nice and helpful...

Great day at the zoo - user review
We thoroughly enjoyed the zoo. Get there when it opens and take the guided tour.....you see all of the animals while they are awake. If you spend a few minutes with a map, you can easily...

San Diego Zoo - user review
The zoo further increased my infatuation with San Diego. I?ve never seen so many a,nimals and such a large environment for them. Balboa Park is amazing in itself and the zoo just adds to it. The highlights were definitely the giant pandas and koala bears. We were there for almost five hours and had...

If you are a member of an affiliate zoo, ask for a Zoo Member Discount; also ask at your affiliate zoo before you go for possible free tickets.

San Deigo Zoo - user review
My fiancé didn't like zoos before we visited the San Diego Zoo?in fact, she was reluctant to visit this zoo with me despite its famous reputation. She left with a completely different opinion. The San Diego Zoo offers fun for all ages because I can't think of any animal or exhibit they do not feat...

Nice Zoo - user review
I was expecting more visibility of the animals. We could not get good pictures due to the cages around most of the animals. The bus tour really did not help find our way--it just confu...

San Deigo Zoo - user review
The zoo closes at 4pm, but you have until 5 to leave. One piece of advice -- you have to stand in line to see the pandas, so do that first if possible. We didn't know that and got there at 3:30, when the line was too long to get through by 5. There were a lot of animals sleeping and/or not around in...

San Diego Zoo - expert review
Balboa Park's -- and perhaps the city's -- most famous attraction is its 100-acre zoo, and it deserves all the press it gets. Nearly 4,000 animals of some 800 diverse species roam in hospitable, expertly crafted habitats that replicate natural environments as closely as possible. The flora in the zo...

San Diego Zoo - user review
Be prepared to walk so you must have a good pair of tennis shoes, because you will be walking up and down a small hill. I found out that summer isn?t the best time to go as it was muggy and the animals are not in their best behavior. But the Polar bear tank it?s awesome. You can stand there and wa...

San Diego Zoo - user review
Take the bus tour first and then go back and visit the things you missed or want to take a second look at. There weren't that many places to eat, so it might be a good idea to eat first or pack a lunch. The zoo is always an enjoyable place to visit though. You don't have to wait in long lines for th...

The San Diego Zoo lives up to its reputation - hundreds of animals, many housed in natural habitats, are on display in a well-thought-out park. As an animal lover, it was a bit disconcerting for me to see the animals confined with such limited range (particularly the elephants, bears and some of the...

As you might expect, the zoo is a wonderful place for just about everyone. However, after visiting the Wild Animal Park, I felt that nothing else quite compared. I must admit that the zoo has better aviaries and seems to house more simians (perennial favorites of mine). However, many animals were of...

This is a huge zoo -- you need to be prepared to walk A LOT. If you have any problems walking 2 or more miles in a day, I would recommend planning to reserve a wheelchair. Really, it is a lot of walking and uphill. Pay the extra money for the bus tour and take it early in the day -- it is nice to se...
