On behalf of my family, thank you for the warm hospitality we received yesterday! We had a wonderful time, Nabilah took really good care of us and so did everyone else who we met along the journey.


Well done everyone and thank you again from the bottom of our hearts.
The personal buggy tour is what everyone should book, we got so many enquiries from our friends and followers hahahah I felt I was working for the zoo! Hope all of them will enjoy it soon!

Appreciate the treat!

We would like to write a letter of commendation for Bridgette, our guide today.


She was EXCELLENT. She interacted fabulously with our two toddlers, was very knowledgeable, and went the extra mile to ensure our private tour was a memorable one. We are so glad to see passionate staff like her at the Singapore Zoo. We understand she has just graduated and will be working at the Night Safari. We wish her the very best and will definitely request for her for our next private tour.


Please send this message along to Bridgette and her manager. She is definitely an asset to your organisation.


Thanks!

Hi, I just completed a private buggy tour on 2 May 2021. It started at 9.30AM and the guide was Nabilah. I would like to commend on her guide, it was informative and enjoyable. After each interaction, she would promptly inform us where to wash our hands. At the tortoise area, she provided wet wipes as there isn't an area to wash hands.

Please convey our thanks to her, and commend her to keep it up so that the Singapore Zoo will continue to shine especially once the tourists return :) #EmergingStrongerTogether

Dear Peggy

 

We would like to compliment your kind assistance for our tour.
Peggy did a wonderful job of guiding us around the Singapore zoo. She was knowledgeable and told us lots of backgrounds of the animals. She was very accommodating to our changes and she spoke Chinese to my parents which really makes my parents' trip enjoyable.


Peggy helped us take pictures, answered my many questions.


Thank you for making our trip a memorable experience.


Couldn't ask for a better tour guide and would totally recommend Peggy to all of my friends!


We look forward to have your service again!

It took about 30 mins in a grab at 9am to reach the zoo from Swissotel the Stamford.

This zoo is such a beautiful place to visit.
We have been here many times but never done the 1 hour Wild Discoverer Tour. There is one at 10:30am - there is another tour at 3:30pm if you were heading to the zoo later in the day. I booked this ahead of time as you get a 10% discount on tours when you book the lot together - S$38 per adult and $25 per child on top of the entry fee before discount and it was worth every cent.
You get driven around by a guide in a golf buggy, who tells you facts about animals and you get priority feeding to the giraffes, cuddle a giant tortoise and he even snuck in a orangutan photo for us.
At the end he dropped us to where we wanted in the zoo and we could do as we please.

Tips & Info:
Take your own water bottle as they have refill stations all around the park.

There is toilets for the kids and sinks down low to wash hands easily.

Nursery areas with hot and cold water dispensers for making bubs food.

Take swimwear for the kids as they have a waterpark to cool off.

You are allowed to take packed lunches into the park.

Have your camera ready as some animals are free range and will pop up anywhere - like a couple of cheeky monkeys we spotted.

Pay the extra $5 for a tram to save the legs.

We booked the Wild Discoverer Tour before coming to Singapore Zoo from Australia. Our guide (Justin) was most knowledgable; he has worked there 18 months. He knew so much for such a relatively short time. It was great being able to feed giraffes, interact with the tortoises in their enclosure and have a photo taken with orangutans. We were able to touch the tortoises after Justin gave instructions on how to handle them appropriately. Justin also fetched us in the buggy to save us walking back after being guided through some exhibits. Much appreciated in the warm weather. The tour was more than we expected and went for almost 90 mins. At the conclusion, Justin showed us on the zoo map where we had been and recommended other exhibits to visit. Thanks to Justin and the zoo for a great tour in conjunction with our regular zoo admission!
