Review 19th April 2011
I am happy to report back that my animal experience was fantastic! Also, I was pleased to receive your email a few days before this took place; it was good to know that you hadn't filed all the details away, once it was booked.

It was a great venue and the staff really made the experience special. After a long journey we were made very welcome with a cup of tea and biscuits and it was made very clear what was going to happen. The time actually spent with the red pandas was as good as I had hoped and the staff were keen to see that I was enjoying it and had all my questions answered.

Overall this was a big success and I would definitely recommend your experiences. Right from the start it was easy and straightforward to book and we didn't come across any problems at all. Many thanks for your part in this. Jennie - Surrey
