We took this tour in Dec, 2022 and it was truly amazing. First off, it was just two of us in a van and our driver and a guide Steve provided us with an unforgetful experience both on the road as well as in the Zoo. Steve picked us up from our hotel on time and was engaging in conversation with us throughout the drive to the Zoo, enlightening us with cultural and historical facts and events. He was very personable and even treated us with Pavlova desert once he learned that we did not have a chance to try it previously. Steve provided us with suggestions how to organize our time in the Zoo to make the most out of the experience there. He picked us up from the Zoo on time and again kept us entertained on our way back to the hotel. It happen to be my birthday and I wanted to personally thank Steve again making it so memorable. I would highly recommend both Steve and your company to all interested, you would not regret it.

This was the most fantastic zoo I’ve ever been too. It is so clean and the animals seem so well cared for. Steve would be proud that his legacy lives on. I’ve always wanted to hold a koala. I cried that I finally got the opportunity. If you love koalas as much as I do, this is the place to be. Thank you for making my dreams come true.

Bus trip was very handy. It was easy to see all the animals. The zoo was very clean and well set out. I enjoyed the bird performance the best

Australian Zoo is absolutely a must-see destination in Brisbane.

Very convenient. Enough time to walk around the zoo
