"Erica was so friendly and made the whole experience enjoyable in a relaxed environment. I never expected to be able to get so close to the animals and it's an experience I'll never forget." – Keeper Experiences

"I wanted to say a big thank you and your team for a brilliant day on Friday. It was so well organised. All the activities were really informative, while still being fun. I will definitely recommend Edinburgh Zoo for a group day out to others. Organising this with you has been a really good experience! Thanks so much." – Team building

"Everyone was patient and kind.  Nothing was trivialised and our fear was taken seriously.  It helped to meet a group of others with similar feelings and cheer each other on during the catch and release part." – Phobia workshops

"Neve had her party on Sunday and we all just wanted to say a massive thanks to Chiara, Maurice, our tour rangers, the wonderful people who did the food and everyone whom made the day so special! We were so pleased with the facilities, the food, the organisation, the activities and of course the animals. I couldn’t have wished for a better birthday experience. So much thanks for making Neve’s 8th birthday so special!" – Birthday parties
