Review of: Feeding Tour

The feeding tour is excellent and the guide was fantastic. The guide was knowledgeable and took time to answer questions. She made sure everyone had time to look and see everything and was well versed on Tigers. A good place to visit with the family.

We always suggest the tour times based on weather as well. Whenever the weather is the coolest or mildly rainy the cats tend to be most active. If you take a feeding tour, the food incentive will typically always encourage... More
