Zoo Guided Tour

Join us on an exploration of the Central Park Zoo with our knowledgeable and trained Zoo Guides leading the way. Since 1988, we have provided enriching tours to groups of schoolchildren, scouts, summer campers, families, and adults who are interested in learning more about our animals and exhibits. They're a cost-effective way to maximize your visit.

Late Arrivals

Due to a very full schedule, programs will not be extended for late-arriving groups beyond the scheduled end time. Staff will make every attempt to cover as much material as possible in the time available. Please obtain information on how to locate us in advance of your trip by visiting the directions page on our website.

Weather Conditions

Programs are held rain or shine unless trips are cancelled by school officials or a zoo closure is in effect. Please encourage children to dress appropriately for outdoor activities.
