Being a senior who has difficulty walking long distances, I was thrilled to be able to rent a electric chair and get myself around to see everything I wanted, (about 2 hours). It as so beautiful with the foliage that seeing the animals was actually a side benefit. It was my first time and regardless of many of the exhibits not available, I was filled with joy and appreciation for the beauty and comfort in doing the various safaris. Because I had the electric chair, I was o.k. with the fact that the Africa Tram was not in service. I was alone and enjoyed a delicious healthy salad for lunch and easily got parking and left the premises without any trouble.

Howie, Jeff and one other driver did great jobs of describing places we were passing, adding bits of history and fun facts. The Trolley was very timely (every 20 minutes), and I comfortably hopped off at Old Town and on Orange St. in Coronado to shop & eat. This is the best and most economical way to see almost everything worth seeing in San Diego. The drivers were friendly fonts of knowledge.

Ticket included Skyferri but that was shut! The zoo may have been world leading but others have caught up and overtaken in terms of exhibits and access to animals still a lot of small cages/spaces. Enjoyed myself it was still a lovely experience to see the wonder of these creatures

Very nice experience! The visit to Coronado Island was great! I just didn't like crossing over the Coronado Bridge which is very long and high, but I survived and it was worth it. : )

The animal exhibits were wonderful. The uphill and downhill layout was made easier for us older visitors with the availability of elevators and even an outdoor escalator.
