Embark on this unique tour of Europe, where the customary stops in major cities are each punctuated with a trip to that city’s zoo. This trip has been carefully curated to feature some of the most remarkable zoos in Europe, from the open environment that puts tourist next to ape in Apenheul Primate Park to the rebuilt and reclaimed zoos of Germany that were once demolished during the world wars. This is an opportunity to visit some of the most incredible animal sanctuaries on Earth, places where exotic species were bred in captivity for the first time, and where millions upon millions of people have discovered a love for our animal brethren. Explore the wild side of Europe on this tour of its most superlative zoos.
