San Diego San Diego Zoo Excursion Reviews

The San Diego Zoo draws millions of visitors to view pandas, rhinos, tigers, elephants and so much more. Miles of trails wind through the zoo's lush 100 acres perched on the north side of Balboa Park, so a map and good walking shoes are essential.
spent 6 hours wandering the 0 and still didn't see everything, great zoo!

The zoo experience was what you would expect from a zoo trip. We were disappointed that at the end of the day when we met at the bus stop, the driver was 45 minutes late to pick us up. After an exhausting trip at the zoo, the last thing anyone wanted to do was to wait so long for the bus to arrive. Read Less

Excellent!
Excellent! Passes were prepurchased directly through the zoo's website. Wish we would've had more time. We took the city bus for $1.10 (senior rate) each way and saved $$$ over the cruiseline's price.
