GUIDED TOURS

Guides lead your group on an exclusive educational experience, sharing fun facts and stories about our animals. A Zoo Tour is a great way to navigate the Zoo in a limited time period. A Behind-the-Scenes Tour of our Animal Nutrition Kitchen is a fun addition that gives students an exclusive peek at what it takes to care for the animals at Zoo Atlanta. To find out if this program is right for you, please review the Program Packet prior to registering.

Spend 90 minutes exploring the Zoo with your Tour Guide. Topics highlighted will include biology, zoology, environmental education and Zoo Atlanta history. We can tailor tours to cover grade-specific standards.
