Trip Description:

Come join us on a special guided tour of the award winning Fort Worth Zoo – voted #1 zoo in the US! We’ll be guided around the park by Zoo experts and be given the opportunity to go behind the scenes and explore exhibits in parts of the park not normally accessed by guests. For an experience that’s truly head and shoulders beyond the rest, this adventure involves feeding the giraffes! We’ll meet the herd and learn about some of the training and enrichment they receive. Admission to the zoo is included so when we finish our tour you’re free to explore the rest of the zoo and stay for however long you’d like.
