Guided Bus Tour

Guided Bus Tour

The last Guided Bus Tour departs one hour prior to the daily Zoo closing time.


Join us for a narrated, round-trip 35-minute adventure through Zoo grounds on our double-decker buses—and find out more about how we're saving species worldwide, and what you can do as an ally for wildlife. The Guided Bus Tour boards near the Zoo entrance, and it is included with all admission tickets and memberships. 

No reservation required. This is a first-come, first-served experience.

A classic way to enjoy the Zoo!


The Guided Bus Tour is accessible for guests using wheelchairs. ASL-interpreted tours are available with advance notice. For all guest-interpreting requests, reservations should be made one week in advance of the day of the visit by calling 619-231-1515, ext. 4526.


Ofrecemos un recorrido en español a la 1:00 de la tarde. Por favor hacer su reservación en la taquilla “TOURS & MEMBERSHIPS” en la entrada del zoológico.


Please Note: While we work hard to provide an exceptional guest experience, occasionally wildlife habitats, tours, restaurants, transportation, entertainment or other services change or close without notice and without liability due to unscheduled circumstances.
