We went as it's been pouring in France all week. Unfortunately we missed the feeding which we think would be really good. The torts are great. Feeding is in the afternoon I believe at 3pm. It's only really a couple of hours to get round.

Really enjoyed experience, realistic settings, interesting buildings. Could do with English guide book for information boards as kids started getting bored, as we couldn't answer all their questions.

I enjoyed it sort of....never really liking animals in cages it is hard to get past that but nonetheless a worthwhile experience - especially if you purchase tickets online and save a few quid!
