Behind the Scenes Tours

Would you like to add more to your visit? This behind the scenes tour offers you a glimpse into the inner workings of the Greenville Zoo!

Visitors see our commissary area and learn about the nutritional needs of the animals in the zoo. From there, we wind our way around the zoo, visiting various exhibits, meeting zoo keepers, and having close-up encounters with the zoo residents.

Traditional tours can accommodate up to 20 guests. Tours are held from 2 to 3 p.m. For safety reasons, tours are for children ages 5 and up.
Members $35 | Non-members $40

Want a more personalized experience? Private tours are available! The perfect date night, family excursion, or corporate outing- our tours can be tailored to meet your needs.
